MEET THE DESIGNER AND FOUNDER
Following in the professional footsteps of her mum who trained and worked in couture, designer and founder Kim is forging her own way, designing for the new generation woman. Keenly fashion-focused, the label reflects the effortless sophistication of Melbourne’s style and the cool and edgy attitude of eclectic London. “The backdrop of these two cities I call and called home have intrinsically influenced my style point of view.”
Embracing a natural gravitational pull towards design, Kim learnt much of what she knows today, from ‘hanging out’ in her mum’s workroom where she experimented with left over fabrics. Today, she surrounds herself with the industry’s best homegrown team of pattern and clothing makers.“We’re incredibly proud to design and make each of our gowns locally - in Australia - it’s integral to who we are and our commitment to supporting local businesses.”
