Wool4School 2012 – Modern Australia
The theme of Modern Australia allowed students plenty of freedom to express their ideas. Inspiration can be whatever Modern Australia means to them - music, sport, school, family, the beach, the country, urban life - their choice is as wide as their Australia.
"Brooke's entry displayed a very good understanding of the characteristics of Merino wool and its versatility. She converted her mood board inspiration into a unique garment design. I look forward to working with Brooke and making the piece and in doing so giving Brooke a sense of the fashion industry from my perspective" said Jonathan Ward
"It has been a great experience being part of the Wool4School program. I have had lots of opportunities to meet people in the wool and fashion industry and I have learnt about the benefits of using wool in garments. I recommend Wool4Skool for any teenagers looking for a future career in fashion design," said Brooke Pearce.
