AUSSIE STYLE: Christopher Esber, Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci are among designers presenting in Paris during the first edition of the Australian Designers Abroad initiative, held by the Australian Fashion Chamber.
“The spring collection is inspired by native America,” said Esber, whose label is already available on Shopbop and LuisaViaRoma, and at Tsum in Moscow.
“We’re not in Paris yet. Fingers crossed,” he added.
Melbourne-based designers Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci, who made their Paris debut with their Strateas Carlucci label last June during men’s fashion week, presented a striking silk satin blazer with raw edges.
“We play around with textures and proportions,” Strateas explained.
Camilla and Marc, Ginger & Smart, Michael Lo Sordo, Romance Was Born and Bassike are the other labels presenting at the showroom at 9 Place des Vosges through Oct. 8.
