Karla Špetić x Australian Fashion Week 2019
Karla Špetić, who launched her eponymous label in 2008 at Australia Fashion Week just two years after graduating from the Sydney Fashion Design Studio, has become synonymous with Australian fashion.
Špetić who looks to her surroundings for inspiration, showcased her Resort 19 collection at The Blue Room, overlooking Sydney's iconic Bondi Beach, where guests previewed a curated collection to mark her ten-year anniversary. However, it was the powerful 2016 documentary, ‘A Plastic Ocean’ which led to her milestone collection.
Conceptual overcoats and dresses made from bubble wrap made a bold statement as did the recycle symbol print which was used across soft dresses.
A palette of ocean blues was used throughout Špetić’s collection, mixed with bright oranges and crisp whites.
