Introducing our 2016 Fashion labels. Set to hit the runway for 3 spectacular shows : 12:00PM, 3:00PM and 6:00PM


Lady Bold

While the patterns are fun, quality and functionality are taken seriously – with consistency in every piece. Lady Bold’s blended fabrics and materials are to give you comfort, help boost your exercise performance and other range of benefits. The artwork on the apparel has been hand drawn or crafted by myself, Karina. Every piece is a story of my quirkiness – each little pattern, drawing and colour has been deliberately created and positioned in its place for a purpose. There is a great amount of detail in the design process as the artwork takes an average of three to five weeks to reach perfection. It’s a long process to get everything right, but the end result has been worth it.

April Marie Swimwear

April Marie Swimwear is a stunning new and exciting Australian made label. Designer April Hewat has created a beautiful swimwear collection, consisting of breathtaking photographs artistically printed onto high quality Lycra. April Marie swimwear embodies culture, romance and opulence. The natural electric tones of mother nature, captured by state of the art photography, and together with the technology of shiny Italian lycra, the garments come alive. The story board is awesome with stylish structured pieces combined with exotic snake skins, ancient art, flowers, seashells and Ken Duncan Australian Landscapes. Women all over the world are claiming their own unique piece to their couture wardrobes, and laying claim to individual style.

Cadia Belante

Cadia Belante is a Melbourne based fashion label which focuses on sustainable clothing production. The label was created in response to the increasing volume of already produced materials and the rate at which these materials are becoming landfill. Cadia Belante proposes to develop ways to re-circulate these consumable items, and at the same time reduce waste. The discovery of large quantities of surplus sleeping bags in second hand stores was an initial catalyst for her exploration into the possibility of re-purposing within fashion design. Cadia began to collect interesting but obsolete items to experiment with, and has since discovered potential for items that would otherwise remain unused, or be thrown away. Cadia Belante is inspired by the future possibilities of challenging the boundaries within fashion design. Think Captain Planet’s Planeteers! – Blurring the lines between art and fashion, innovative street pop culture with a playful infusion of bold color and print. Utilizing recycled sleeping bags, exploring the possibilities of re-purposing within fashion.

Spirit Bird Boutique

Carefully chosen European and Japanese fabrics include delicate Liberty florals to delight the senses that hark back to a bygone era, when life was simple and pleasures came from the little things. Flowing linen dresses for the beach and more fitted styles for the office with beautiful clean lines for an easy transition to after work drinks or a special occasion. These moments and classical vintage looks, have shaped and created every garment Spirit Bird has to offer in terms of its style, quality and longevity. All of my designs are made with LOVE in Melbourne.

Kwacha Fashion

Kwacha came from Malawi in 1998 with her mother and has been living in Melbourne since she went to school at Yarraville West Primary School and Glen Eira College. From finishing high school in 2005, She went on to undertake a Nursing course which she hated and failed. Over the next few years, she undertook a few courses at TAFE and went onto work in Hospitality, PCA Work, Real Estate and all. However she wasn’t happy with what she was doing. Kwacha then started a hair business in which she is doing well. Her true calling has always been in fashion and even if you asked her mum or her high school arts teacher – they will always tell you that Kwacha was more interested in drawing and producing garments. In 2014, her partner Patrick who has been very supported of her: purchased her a sewing machine and not long after her mum purchased her an overlocking machine and when it comes to fabric choices, Kwacha states “Mum is usually the one that spots fabric for me and brings them home to me”. And with the help of Youtube, Kwacha Fashion was born.  Kwacha will be showcasing 4 Collections on the day.
