Australian Designers - Designer Look 1 

We thought we would share with you some of our favourite looks from our favourite Australian labels - Andie Meredith & Sarah Rothe

The All Eye Dress by Andie Meredith is made from bamboo jersey and is available in oyster (as pictured) or black and is such a gorgeous piece. Andie uses sustainable design practices  aimed at the individual in luxurious natural fibres, together with a high standard of quality and an ethical manufacturing practice.

 

Sarah Rothes’ 'Twiggy Earrings' are AMAZING and inspired by a research and development trip to China where the traditional art of paper cutting caught her eye.

Titanium is used to capture these designs while utilising the strength, hypoallergenic and lightweight properties of this amazing metal.

Detailed images are created using a chemical etching process, while the array of beautiful shimmering colours are achieved through an electrical process where voltage is used to colour titanium without dyes.

Dames & Divas Kimono Inspired Half Wedges - Kuro are the perfect accompaniment to the gorgeous look above.  Handcrafted from kimono inspired silk, suede & leather.
