REMUSE

REMUSE Designs is a Melbourne based clothing label where futurism meets nature. Fusing artisan techniques, dye technology, and natural fibres, REMUSE investigates the ways the future of a fashion is simply fashion that takes inspiration from the earth.

The philosophy behind the label is to create small, ethically produced, trans-seasonal collections, released quarterly at the time of each Equinox and each Solstice. Each collection gives REMUSE an opportunity to reconsider its impact and material choices.

All REMUSE items are Ethical Clothing Australia accredited.

MAUDE STUDIO

Inspired by iridescence, the underwater world, and all things shiny. MAUDE Studio was founded in Melbourne, by Courtenay Tyrrell. Each piece is uniquely hand embellished in their studio along the Great Ocean Road, in Australia. For this reason, no two embellished creations are the same, preserving the uniqueness of each piece.

Instilling brilliance into each thoughtful design, the selection of statement sunglasses and handbags foster the ostentatious while maintaining a focus on quality designer craftsmanship.

MAUDE Studio celebrates the beauty of the extraordinary and features fabrics and embellishments carefully selected for their own unique sheen and texture. They pride themselves on producing luxurious creations of bejewelled decadence.

KALIOPI ELENI

The Adelaide based label by Kaliopi Eleni is named after the ninth and most powerful muse of ancient Greek mythology.

Captured and brought to life in luxurious garments crafted from the world’s finest textiles."

Kaliopi was born into a home of beautiful fabrics and garments that her mother, a skilled seamstress, used to work with and assemble by hand. Graduating with honours from the Prestigious Emily McPherson Fashion School at RMIT University in Melbourne, Kaliopi has gone on to receive design awards and has had extensive experience designing and styling actors and presenters in the film and television industry.

SIYONA

"Siyona. Fashion steeped in tradition with a modern outlook. The Siyona woman is a connoisseur of the exceptional. She is independent, confident and ambitious. She lives life to the full and exudes style, grace and attitude through her wardrobe as an expression of her personality."

Siyona garments are designed with the contemporary woman’s lifestyle in mind. Each piece is carefully handcrafted using traditional manufacturing techniques – from delicate embroidery to hand-beading and finishing – every item in the Siyona collection has been created with care and attention to detail. The result is sophisticated and beautiful clothes that are an expression and reflection of the confidence and point of view of the woman who wears them.

In these times of fast fashion and mass production, Siyona draws on the expertise and training of traditional fabric artisans, each one a specialist in their craft. Many garments are designed with more than one technique in mind, and the wearer can be assured that her garment is a result of a collective artisan effort of time and attention, a true investment piece to be treasured and kept. Siyona collections are designed in Australia and crafted in India by specialist artisans.
