Cashmere designer Oyuna Tserendorj explores whether her native country’s signature Mongolian cashmere can break out of its super-soft image, working with a trio of hard-edged design practices: Study O Portable, Hunting & Narud, and long-term collaborator Peter Marigold. Each will create its own take on an Oyuna product.
13 - 21 September; London Morgan, 3 Astwood Mews, London, SW7 4DE
