9 September 2022

AFC Members Bianca Spender and Nobody Denim have collaborated to create a limited edition capsule collection of conscious ready-to-wear denim styles. The collection acknowledges both brands’ commitment to the environment, local production and celebrating the Australian fashion industry.
 

Australian fashion has earnt a unique position on the global stage. Known for its effortless approach to dressing, conscious design, and use of luxurious natural fibres. Bianca Spender has become synonymous with tranquil tailoring and supple, romantic drapery and is most revered for her refined corporate and eveningwear.
 

As traditional dress codes come under scrutiny, Spender turned to the concept of elevating the everyday wardrobe. Post COVID-19, denim is more prevalent than ever, and people are seeking pieces with a unique perspective on design. Spender has always had a deep respect for the craftsmanship and expertise that goes into making denim and saw the opportunity to partner with a like minded Australian brand to create a collection that brings the beauty of the Bianca Spender brand into the everyday.
 

“I’ve always been inspired by the idea of unearthing beauty in the everyday and finding joy in getting dressed. I was excited by the idea of exploring pieces that can be worn daily, while also highlighting the design detail that goes into Bianca Spender collections. I wanted to start with pieces that were unconventional and take a playful approach. You can see so much of the detailing within the designs through the washes, stitching and finishes. The nature of denim brings a sculptural feel to my traditionally fluid or liberated silhouettes which has been very exciting to work with.”
- Bianca Spender, Founder and Creative Director, Bianca Spender

 


 

A keen support for the Australian manufacturing industry and sustainable business practices are what bound the two brands. 23 years on from its’ inception, Nobody Denim remains dedicated to local manufacturing and maintaining ethical practices to lead the industry in innovative sustainability solutions.
 

All pieces in the Bianca Spender X Nobody Denim collection are designed, produced and finished in Nobody Denim’s Melbourne factory. Conscious fabric choices include Hemp. Considered a ‘super fibre,’ The natural plant requires substantially less water and chemical inputs than conventional cotton and is biodegradable and renewable. Accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia, the collection has been produced employing responsible business practices.
 

“This collaboration has been the meeting of two likeminded Australian brands. I have a deep level of craft in my pieces, and I’ve always had a respect for the expertise that goes into making denim. Much like Nobody Denim, Bianca Spender has always been committed to producing locally in Australia and working in a sustainable way, with the objective of decreasing our impact on the environment.”
- Bianca Spender, Founder and Creative Director, Bianca Spender
 

“Nobody Denim and Bianca Spender have very different aesthetics which is what has made this project so wonderful. The sharing of practices and ideas between two passionate brands is the spirit of collaboration and I can’t wait for our respective customers to be able to shop this special collection.”
- John Condilis, CEO and Co-Founder, Nobody Denim

 


 

11 styles in a colour palette of oxford blue, sky and chalk comprise the collection. Non-traditional silhouettes are influenced by some of Spender’s most revered styles from over the years and take on new life when crafted in sculptural denim.
 

The collection will be available to purchase through Bianca Spender and Nobody Denim retail outlets on 8th September 2022.
