melbourne fashion week 2019

posted on September 05 2019

We are honored to be part of the opening runway. This year, we showcased garments from our Resort 20 collection, which we presented in Paris earlier in the year. Fashion ambassador and international model Adut Akeh Bior returned home to open the runway show wearing our circle dance dress.

Inspired by Rosemary’s ancestral roots and the circle dance, the kolo, which is the oldest form of Croatian folk dance. The collection is an embodiment for freedom of expression. Dance. Costumes. Storytelling. The women wearing long white embroidered dresses with very heavy aprons tied at the waist. Peplums. Full circle materials dance with life. Pure white textured pleated skirts and blouses and underskirts create mystery. The embroidery is very intricate. Hand made and in the colours of red, white and blue. There are clouds in the sky. Their bare feet touch the ground. Present in nature. Heavily embellished jackets and vests act like coat of arms. Intricate patterns and cut lace work aprons and scarfs decorate waists and beautiful faces.


Millinery pieces for the runway were commissioned and handmade using scraps of fabric by melbournian milliner Jill
