Tell us about the name behind the Eclipse 2010 collection? How did this inspire the nike soccer shoes magista pieces?
Using the natural curves of the body as a canvas, the fabrics in the collection work like a second skin which gently hug and enhance the body shape. Skin to skin, this sleek silhouette is like a shadow, a perfect eclipse of the feminine form.
How long has it taken for this range to come together? What has the anticipation been like in the lead up to the show?
We started working on the range towards the beginning of October 2009 and we superfly soccer shoes for sale were still working on alterations and dyeing silk tulle fabrics until the day before the show. So needless to say, the lead up to the show was busy and exhausting but always exciting.
You are now a New York Fashion Week staple, and have received astounding success over there. How has this latest collection been received?
The media response so far has been great. The collection was well received in the US and while I have only just arrived back in Australia, it seems to be receiving great coverage here too.
Sales began two days ago and so far the reaction from buyers has been phenomenal and interest in the brand continues to soar.
The colour palette fell heavily on black and camel tones, with splashes of vivid red and pink. Is colour an important feature for you in your A/W wardrobe?
Since I started the label, I have always included a shade of skin and this collection features various nude nike soccer shoes magista tones which serve as a base colour to reflect the shades of skin on the body.
Blood reds are contrasted with black, and highlights of poison pinks are used to accentuate the palette.

This collection is about dressing women. It not about being nostalgic or futuristic. It is always an honour to be supported by the clever, strong and talented women of the world and, of superfly soccer shoes for sale course, to have such amazing support, particularly from Australian women.
Will you be showing at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (May 37)?
No plans just yet.
