Designed in Sydney and inspired by the punk rock record covers, gig posters and old-school comics beloved by designer Kaylene Milner since she was a teenager, WAH-WAH reimagines awesome music designs as wearable art. WAH-WAH collaborates with bands and artists both local and international, to create a marriage of the elements of pop culture that is bright, loud, and proudly tongue-in-cheek. The seeds of WAH-WAH were first planted in high school when Milner saw a photo of Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis wearing a Deep Wound sweater his mother had knitted for him. The image stayed with her even as she worked on her first high end label, Kaylene Milner. Despite the success and critical acclaim it garnered, Milner felt she wanted to do something different as a designer. Finally, after more than a decade, WAH-WAH Australia was born.
