WHY AFC VIRTUAL?

We usually present the collections in a private showroom in Paris, working this season with AFC Virtual has opened up the showroom to a much wider audience and given buyers the flexibility to view at their convenience, no matter the timezone.

about the COMMAS collection currently on AFC Virtual

The SS21 Collection is a meeting of two moments in time. The course of designing the collection was a time of reflection for me, drawing inspiration from so many different places and moments. I went back through numerous photo albums and playlists from road trips along the coast and even records I have found whilst traveling. The collection encapsulates what I want to feel the next time I travel as I further add to these memories.

 What does ‘Australian Fashion’ mean to you?

 The Australian perspective is quite unique, we live a relaxed lifestyle which means we need clothes versatile enough to compliment this. For many coastal Australian locations such as Sydney, we experience prolonged summers, giving us an opportunity for our wardrobe to be intertwined with what we wear on holiday.
