habbot in VAMFF | behind the scenesMarch 17, 2015
We’re excited to be supporting the designers Shakuhachi and Macgraw at VAMFF this week and thrilled to be able to share some behind the scenes images with you, at a fitting headed up by show stylist Kate Gaskin.
Having worked with Kate previously, I was again not only in awe of her talent but also her composure; she is officially the calmest cookie under pressure that I've come across in the fashion world to date! Kate has been working around the clock to pull together what will be yet another fabulous showcase of Australian designers work.
The brands we are teaming up with capture two different very different aesthetics and what I love most is that it highlights just how versatile our collections are and how habbot shoes can work no matter what your personal compass is or how you like to self-style.
Sisters Beth and Tessa MacGraw launched their eponymous label in April 2012. Fusing classic silhouettes with polished, modern lines. They don’t mind a bold print or pattern either, many of which they hand-draw in-house, so definitely my type of girls!
Jessie White’s label, Shakuhachi brings together a sophisticated blend of modern, somewhat geometrical designs – a distinctive style cleverly combining exquisite detailing and distinctive prints across a myriad of materials from leather and structured crepe right through to fine jerseys and silk. Like me, Jessie’s material imagination seems to know no boundaries!
We hope you enjoy the snaps taken when we stopped by the fittings to see Kate in action, a little look behind the scenes...
