Melbourne-based fashion designer Kara Baker launches three collections per year exclusively to an audience of private clients. All garments are ordered by appointment, fitted, then made to measure by hand with a choice of fabrics. Only natural fibres are used: including silk, cotton, linen and wool, or combinations of these. Some materials – vintage textiles – are found and repurposed, while other fabrics used are contemporary high fashion imports from Italy, UK and Japan. Many garments purchased are one-offs, such as the Talitha dress exhibited in WE ARE LUXURY.
