Bianca Spender ‘LOVE AMOUNG THE RUINS’ - RAFW, May 5th, Day 3, 2010


“Where the quiet-coloured end of evening smiles, Miles and miles” Robert Browning

For Spring/Summer 2010/11 Bianca Spender takes a romantic journey. A unique and modern blend of Pre Raphaelite draping and carefully defined structure create a new poetry. Colours take their cue from gloaming - soft nudes and icy greys through to intense golds and cobalt blues. Finest chiffons glance against stiff cotton metals as ruched silks enwrap the body. Beauty and loss, love and wistfulness spirit through the forest in a twilight dance.

In collaboration with Alex Kershaws (video), Kris Keogh (music) and Anna-Wili Highfeild (artist), Bianca Spender’s first stand alone RAFW SS 2010/11 Collection show will certainly impress the Australian fashion world as ‘the’ designer to watch.

The debut RAFW show will attract Sydney ’s elite celebrities including Miranda Otto, Gracie Otto, Claudia Karvan, Erica Heynatz, Charlotte Dawson, Pip Edwards, Natalie Barr, Mira Vukovic, Michelle Jank, Lizzy Lovette and Carla Zampatti.

Bianca Spender is exclusively available at selected David Jones department stores nationally and the Bianca Spender flagship store on Oxford Street Paddington.

Bianca Spender is forging a reputation for intriguing modern clothes with a fiercely independent attitude. Her collection is known to mix structure with fluidity, resulting in looks both sophisticated yet spirited. Intelligent pieces often draped from a single piece of cloth are an important source of inspiration.

Of paramount importance to Bianca in the design process is finding a sense of balance. With references ranging from art to music to historical dress Bianca seeks a new modernity.

A lifetime's exposure to the fashion industry and mentoring from her mother, acclaimed designer Carla Zampatti, encouraged Bianca to pursue fashion. Study in Sydney and three years of internships in Paris fortified her ambition to have her own label.

A fresh approach, Bianca's eye for detail and strong focus on shape, form and tailoring has given her a distinct signature style that is gaining a discerning and loyal following.

Creativity is contagious. I love how you delve into another world and are invited to experience beautiful things.
