Known for her unique style and ladylike aesthetic, Nicole Warne of garypeppergirl.com never fails to disappoint. When I photographed her earlier this year at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, she supported Australian fashion by exclusively wearing Australian designs throughout the festival. For the first two days of MBFWA, she wore Karla Spetic separates. Combining satin and fluffy knits, there’s an air of dreamy romanticism about both her looks. In a nutshell, this is signature Nicole Warne.
Labelled by Marie Claire magazine as ‘One of the designers to watch’ back in 2009, Karla Spetic’s namesake label was launched two years after she graduated from the Sydney Fashion Design Studio in 2006. Renowned for her modern, playful and minimalist designs, her pieces are now worn around the world with stockists in cities like New York and Dubai. With many Australian designers closing their doors in the past few years, surviving in this current retail climate is a testament to her commercial success. Her designs relate to the modern Australian woman, a commodity that is necessary in order to guarantee longevity in this fickle world that is fashion.
