British Fashion Designer Christopher Raeburn

The Woolmark Company is delighted to announce British designer Christopher Raeburn as its latest designer collaboration for 2016.  Merino wool will play a central role in the creation of Christopher Raeburn's AW16 womenswear presentation - putting the iconic Woolmark brand and Merino wool center stage at the forthcoming London Fashion Week.

Merino wool has outstanding functionality. It moderates temperature and humidity, manages moisture, is flame resistant, anti-microbial and has a natural crimp for stretch and recovery. No other fiber like Merino wool has a rich heritage driven by innovation and change. Inspired by nature, Merino wool connects contemporary culture with progressive apparel for those who aren't afraid to experiment.

Showcasing how Merino wool embraces technological innovation like no other fiber, Raeburn's AW16 presentation re-frames timeless iconic outerwear and base layering pieces by exploring the technical advances of Merino wool.

Raeburn's dedication to sustainability in fashion, along with his signature re-appropriation of fabrics and meticulous attention to historical detail will be highlighted through his use of Merino wool, a natural, biodegradable and renewable fiber, to emphasize its adaptability, versatility, wearability and relevance to a modern audience.

The Woolmark Company and Raeburn collaboration will be previewed at the ICA on 23rd February, 2016.
