The Woolmark Company Profile Information

Meet the International #WoolmarkPrize 2018/19 finalists.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
#AlbusLumen has emerged as one of the most successful Australian fashion brands on the international stage within only a few years, successfully stocked by retailers including MatchesFashion.com and Net-a-Porter. Raised in St. Petersburg before moving to Australia in 1998, where she completed a commercial degree at Sydney University, Marina Afonina began her career as an intern at Harper’s Bazaar Australia, later becoming the magazine’s fashion editor, before styling for titles including Elle, Russh and Vogue. The catalyst for establishing Albus Lumen was a lack of simple essentials for modern women, vacation-style basics that avoided trends and fads, an ethos that remains at the heart of the brand today.

“When I visited the Woolmark Lab I was very surprised and pleased to see how many different textures and elements wool has. I’m excited to take it to the next step for Albus Lumen, and excited to show what I can do with wool and how it can create something different.”
