Elise Gug has always been inspired by classic icons such as Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. When she graduated from The Danish Design school in 1982, she felt compelled to design her own classic collections. This way she knew that women everywhere would always be able to buy classic, high quality, tailor made clothing.

The GA girl is progressive in her beliefs and nomadic in her knowledge. She shirks dress codes, upends expectations and holds a keen sense of joy in everything she does. This is a girl who champions big hearts, honest confidence and positive vibrations. She perceives friction as beauty and appreciates the free spirit as she does the earnest friend. Despite her preferences for simplicity, she is never boring.

BETINA is a luxury t-shirt line created by Betina Ocampo in 2012 while completing her studies at Parsons School of Design. Raised by two designer powerhouses, Betina’s eye for design came naturally, creating a superior understanding of fashion over the years.

betina

Betina’s inspiration stemmed from the work of indigenous tribal communities and craftsmen she was exposed to while traveling around the Philippines and Southeast Asia with her parents. Each design is a progressive collaboration between the young designer’s contemporary vision and the hands of skillful artisans. Together they create whimsical embellishments that give dimension to an otherwise prosaic silhouette.

Adorable, feminine, and playful are the words which best describe the namesake brand of Australian-based designer Alice McCall.

Alice’s signature style takes its inspiration from bohemian, folky subcultures and the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle - resulting in daringly girlish silhouettes detailed with frills, scalloping, and lots of striking colour.
