George Alexander Foundation
Art & Design
This report details the experience of Vincent Meyrick who was awarded a George Alexander Fellowship to gain further knowledge of knitwear programming and manufacturing in Japan in 2023. The Fellow is a Melbourne-based designer, tailor, and knitwear technician with a passion for craftsmanship and a dream to revitalise the fashion and textile industry. After training in the field Vincent identified a crucial lack of knitwear knowledge in Australia’s young industry professionals. In February 2023 they joined a global knitwear manufacturing hub to further their practice and gain knowledge of the field to disseminate in Australia.
