The names to know, from the name that knows.
Lisa Aiken travels the world taking in what could seem like countless labels from new and established designers. A keen sense of what’s next has seen her grace front rows from Milan to Paris, to New York and beyond as fashion director for digital behemoth Net-A-Porter. This week she’s in Sydney for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia and has earmarked her top three local talents to look out for. Take close note.
Fittingly launching at Net-A-Porter during MBFWA, her handcrafted pieces are really relevant as we are seeing this jewellery trend of bold shapes in a minimalistic craft more than ever before. I love how she has incorporated mismatched earrings and octagonal shapes to her offering and I know our customer will respond really well.
Georgia owned proportion play in her last collection but paired the pieces back to be wearable and timeless. I’m really looking forward to seeing what she has to offer this season as we have had a great response from our customers globally.
Finding a designer who can deliver a beautifully edited collection of must-have pieces, with immaculate execution for their first season is a very rare occurrence and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she delivers this time around.
