peek into our current issue

tara whalley at new york fashion week

By

Today is special day, pals. Not only have we learnt that Melbourne designer Tara Whalley will be showing at New York Fashion Week (hooray for home-grown talent!), we’ve also received a sneak peek of her upcoming collection, photographed here with accessories from local label Aacute. From the looks of things, the 28-piece range promises to be a real humdinger. Being the textile whizz that she is, Tara hand-painted a number of artworks before translating them into striking digital prints. She found inspiration in the flowers she admired while strolling around her Melbourne neighbourhood, and from the blooms she spotted during her honeymoon in Japan earlier this year. Needless to say, we’re itching to see the final results. Luckily for us, Tara’s NYFW show (featuring her new duds) will be free to stream via her Instagram account at 6pm on Monday, September 14th. Just register for your front-row seat over here, and don’t forget to don your swishest looks for the occasion.

Update: in case you missed the livestream, keep scrolling for the video and a few snaps from the show.
