Apparel Magazine | New Zealand | 29 October 2010
Apparel magazine features innovative fabric developments in New Zealand, including Fortitude, which featured in a designer garment by Alexandra Owen at New Zealand Fashion Week 2010.
"Alexandra Owen's sculptured designs made full use of the Gimono Ltd produced 'Fortitude' fabric that was aptly intended for the field of martial arts. The double-sided wool/polyester fabric lent itself well to Owens' look this season which demanded plenty of complex tailoring and pleating. Feeling like doing a high-kick in Owens' garment? You can; the fabric has been designed to be incredibly sturdy, antimicrobial and odour-resistant."
