Sydney has been on my radar for a while now. I’ve been hearing through the grapevine that there’s some fresh talent emerging. I’ve also stumbled upon various blogs/street style photos, and have found myself saying ‘WERK!’ over and over again.
So naturally, I had to take a hop, skip and jump down under via Google Atlantic to see what was really going on.
Introducing my new favourite fashion newbie: Aje. Dynamic design duo Adrian Norris and Edwina Robinson burst onto the scene in 2009 with the belief that luxury should be accessible and embraced everyday; and that is exactly what they offer. Their aptly-named ‘Shipwrecked Ball‘ SS13 collection is a sultry juxtaposition of Old Hollywood glamour and noughties grunge. Is that even possible? Of course, this is fashion we’re talking about! Picture hand-embellished sequin dresses toughened up with military boots. It’s a beautiful marriage of sheer luxe and urban cool.
Now, I’m big on craftsmanship and Aje blew me away at first sight. They pay attention to detail and source their natural materials from around the globe to create the most luxurious pieces. Perfection.
Dear Aje, I’d like to own your entire collection please.
P.S, Sydney I salute you – the rumours are true!
Love, Ms.Rae xo
