Tickets for Alexandra's WoolOn creative fashion event go on sale today.

The long-running fashion extravaganza celebrates new and creative design in woollen clothing.

This year's theme would be "dramatic" and the event will be held in a building in Ngapara St, on August 17 and 18. WoolOn co- chairwoman Leonie Williamson said entries were strong and the event brought together many community organisations and was a welcome winter happening for the region.

"We have people from different backgrounds on our committee and a whole network of others who help with the show."
