Girlfriends in Sydney

A gallery of the Stolen Girlfriend’s Club show at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week features on Vogue Australia’s website. The label collaborated with Wellington artist Karl Maughan using his paintings of gardens, bright flowers and sunlit-dappled fauna to digitally adorn garments of its spring/summer 211/12 range. Maughan described his work as part Monet’s garden in Giverny and part New Zealand garden. “It’s an interesting concept and fun doing something slightly off-beat,” Maughan said. Stolen Girlfriends Club co-designer Marc Moore said it was also the first time the label had used as much colour in the range. “Australia loves colour,” Moore said. “It’s our main market right now.” Designer Kate Sylvester also presented her spring/summer 211/12 collection as did Sabatini.
