‘At least they’re using Merino wool,’ a second post read.

It comes after Laura made headlines back in October after Nagnata announced on Instagram it would not re-open its Byron Bay store until unvaccinated customers were legally allowed to shop there.

Posting to its official page at the time, Nagnata uploaded a photo of three models of different ethnicities, alongside a declaration that the brand would ‘reopen when ALL are welcome without fear of judgement’.

The lengthy caption spoke about the importance of ‘inclusivity’ and opposing ‘discrimination’ when it comes to the Covid-19 vaccine.

The designer also attended a rally at the NSW-Queensland border protesting vaccine mandates in February.

The demonstration was part of a series of rallies across the country against mandatory Covid jabs for certain industries and occupations.

Vaccinations are vital to reducing the spread of preventable diseases, and any suggestion otherwise flies in the face of science and the advice of medical experts around the globe.

The coronavirus vaccine is a safe and vital measure being taken to protect the community from the spread of the virus.
