At the luxury end of the wool market, competition to produce the finest quality fleece is fierce and hundreds of Australian wool growers swapped the farm for the red carpet on Tuesday night for the announcement of this year’s top grower.
A giant, gold-coloured catwalk made of glass transformed the historic Royal Hall of Industries in Sydney for a fashion show and announcement of the 50th Ermenegildo Zegna wool award winner. Guests totalled more than 800 and included actor Chris Hemsworth and model Megan Gale.’
