Australia day celebrated by five designers

Five of Australia’s most promising young designers showcased their collections to New York’s top tier press and fashion industry executives on Australia Day.

It was an opportunity for Michael Lo Sordo, Kym Ellery, Magdalena Velevska, Christopher Esber and Kym Ellery to present their Autumn/Winter collections to some of the most influential U.S. buyers.

The event was the finale of the Australian Five program, a joint effort between Woolmark and the Australians in New York Fashion Foundation (AINYFF).

“The Australian Five is focused on bringing the best of Australian design and putting them in front of New York’s best fashion editors, stylists and buyers,” Woolmark CEO Stuart McCullough said. “The people who have come together to support this project are a testament to the value of both Australian designers and the Merino fibre in the international market,” added Rob Langtry, Global Marketing Director of The Woolmark Company.

At the event were AINYFF's Malcolm Carfrae, Richard Christianson and Julie Anne Quay; Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik, daughter of the former Australian Prime Minister Katherine Keating, Aussie actor Emma Lung, photographer Sante D’Orazio, Argentinian model and ‘It girl’ Tati Cotliar and Calvin Klein designer Kevin Carrigan.
