WE LOVE WOOL - "FASHION BY FEELINGS" CAMPAIGN

Molly from Fashion By Feelings invited me to join in Woolmark's effort to encourage the use of wool in fashion. I don't know about you, but I love me a nice wool sweater, scarf or fabulous hat! My involvement in this effort will be to style an outfit using wool and post it onto the website. Below is more info on the campaign.

Woolmark is knitting its way into Facebook's pages launching a global street style competition with a difference. Recently launched, Woolmark's 'Find Fashion by Feelings' lookbook invites users to post their favorite wool looks into one of twelve 'Feelings' categories. Users are then encouraged to vote for the outfits they love the most, with the most 'loved' look winning a AUD $12,000 holiday and wool experience. Additionally, the public can vote for their favorite look, with all voters entered into a weekly draw to win an 'Emu Australia' wool prize pack worth AUD $400.

When viewing the site, viewers are greeted with a Myriad of different looks: From 'Happy' - an explosion of vibrant color; to 'Dark' - a moodier, deeper sultry side to all things wool, to emotions in between.

Woolmark launched the "We Love Wool" Facebook in early June. Since its inception the community now has over 24,000 fans. The thriving community provides consumers, retailers and designers alike a touch-point to connect and discuss all things wool.
Woolmark is synonymous with great design; their 47 year old logo was, this year, awarded "Top logo of all time" by Creative Review Magazine, and with this campaign they're hoping to draw another success in their history....

Please like "We Love Wool" on Facebook and also follow on Twitter. 

Guess what!! You can enter too. All you have to do is go to the "Fashion by Feelings" website and upload an outfit that includes at least 1 wool item. Here are pics of my entry...

Wool Hat: Thrifted and added flower pin

Don't forget to vote for my look by clicking here. Wait for the page to open up to my picture, click the "love" button, fill out your name, email address, county, city/zip then check the I agree box and click enter. The reason that you have to enter so much info is because, as stated above, all voters are entered into a weekly draw to win an 'Emu Australia' wool prize pack worth AUD $400. Also, look for my outfit (coming soon) to the "We Love Wool" Facebook page. Thank you for all of your support!
I want to thank my daughter's bff Addi (she's 10 too) for taking these awesome pics!
With Love,
Kiah

Danielle Celeste Couture said...

I am so embarrassed. Of course, those are not ostrich feathers. I must have had wool covering my eyes when I wrote that.

laura said...

Omg, Kiah! I didn't even know this existed! I love this idea and will investigate this more later!

I love your outfit. Saying that is actually not enough. I mean, I ADORE your outfit! It's a great play on menswear and dapperness, but with so much sass and playfulness! I definitely love that feather stole! Where oh where can I acquire such a piece?

Just looking at this post is making me itch! I'm allergic to wool... all animal fibers, all feathers, all fur. Sucks, bigtime!

I love the contrast of that crazy feather stole with the preppy plaid blazer. Somehow... it works!
