THE DRESS COLLECTIVE'S LATEST ARRIVAL: SOPHIA MARTIN FROM MELBOURNE
The Dress Collective is pleased to welcome Sophia Martin to our growing fashion family! Based in Melbourne, designer Sophia sees design as a form of expression, communication and innovation. The emerging Australian made label offers a fresh take on traditional menswear and womenswear silhouettes, experimenting with deconstruction, tailoring and true craftsmanship. Sophia's aesthetic is influenced by her experiences traveling abroad, interning in London and New York for the likes of Mary Katranzou and The Row. Her philosophy is to use her designs as a catalyst to explore the broader socio, political and economic context of fashion. The Sophia Martin label explores the importance of the senses, focusing on a heightened sense of touch, conveyed through the juxtaposition of structure and drape fabrications.
