New local talent
This week I was fortunate enough to meet with a fabulous new local talent - Nat from 'Handmade by Nat'. I've been very excited about seeing her work because I knew it promised to have colour and incredible bead work. So imagine how happy I am to say that in a week, Sorella Store will be the exclusive stockist of 'Handmade by Nat'.....well until everyone realises how good her work is and tries to snap her up too! I've attached some pics of her work, but for more, check out the Sorella Store facebook page.
Sorella Store also carries local designers Sophie Kyron, Lavish, Paper Skye and we've just picked up gorgeous styles for next Summer from Zahir.
Supporting local talent is really important. We have an emerging and growing fashion industry in WA and it's inspiring to see new designers and new collections every season. The work that goes into each collection is mind-boggling; the design inspiration; the drawing and re-drawing of styles; sourcing fabrics and metals and stones and gems; meeting with agents; manufacture and production; sourcing stockists; fashion shows; media and marketing; and you are always work several seasons ahead! So big love from us to all the creative minds keeping us in amazing fashion. xx
