UPDATE: I’ve received notice that this course has been cancelled. Hopefully it will be rescheduled at some point in the future.
Lynn Savery is one of the best dressed ladies in Melbourne, with a particular fondness for the knitwear styles of the ’30s to the ’50s. Using vintage patterns, she started knitting her own and found there was demand so now hand-knits to order for some fashionable local boutiques.
She’s starting a new class at the CAE on the history of fashion knitwear, and will cover progress from domestic handcraft to commercial product. Many designers will be covered including the revolutionary styles of Chanel and Schiaparelli in the ’20s up to Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood in more modern times.
