VOGUE DESIGNER SHOWCASE WITH ANNA WINTOUR AT THENATIONAL GALLERY VICTORIA
NAGNATA was invited by Vogue Australia to present two looks to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, at the National Gallery of Victoria Emerging Designer Showcase on 25 January 2019.
Nagnata sister design-duo Laura May and Hannah, unveiled looks from the Movement 003 collection including a new collaboration with The Woolmark Company. NAGNATA x The Woolmark Company 'Sensuality Of Seamless' collection was previewed to Dame Anna Wintour and esteemed Australian director Baz Luhrmann ahead of the official launch to market in February.
The Nagnata designers had the opportunity to speak to Wintour on their textile innovation processes using Australian Merino wool and organic cotton and the brand's work within sustainably minded design.
The 'Sensuality Of Seamless' collection drew inspiration from traditional mens wool suiting fabrications, creating a houndstooth knit jacquard pattern combined with the brand’s signature colour-blocking and retro sports design details.
Vogue stylist Pip Moroney styled the Movement looks for an energetic avant-garde presentation of Nagnata. The mannequins were finished with headpieces designed by artist Anna-Will Highfield.
