Racing Fabrics

One of my fabric suppliers is Warwick Fabrics which I have blogged about before.

Mercer Collection from Warwick

They are an Australian owned family company which has been around for the last 40 – 50 years. Their upholstery fabrics are well known to upholsterers and furniture manufacturers throughout Australia as they provide good quality at a good price. We have used their fabrics for curtains, blinds, upholstery and cushions from their extensive range.

Towards the end of last year I noticed they had a new advertisement in the Australian magazines. It was the Spring Racing Carnival and I thought this ad was very clever. You may not be able to see it very clearly but all the jockeys jackets and the horse blankets are made from Warwick fabrics.

And then over Christmas I noticed this ad. It coincides with the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race which takes place each Boxing Day here in Sydney Harbour.

In a previous life I was involved in Marketing and Public Relations for one of the big banks, so I was very taken with these clever advertisements and I can’t wait to see what comes next. Bunnies in jackets perhaps?

    I had to laugh about your comment about designers wearing was something that I certainly noticed when I attended the D&D Exhibition…it almost felt like I was strolling through Myer or David Jones….surrounded by sales

    Im glad I wasnt the only one wanting to snap away that day….how did you find it?
