It’s Bronte is a label by Perth fashion designer Bronte Sawyer. Bronte graduated from North Metropolitan Tafe in 2016 with an Advanced Diploma in Fashion and Textiles. She has already had a very busy year after being selected to be part of the City of Joondalup Urban Couture Graduate and Emerging Designer Capsule Showcase. Bronte also held a successful pop up shop ‘Art Meets Fashion’ at Periscope Upstairs in Northbridge. Bronte has spend the last few months in Sydney where she has completed a three month internship with Romance Was Born. Bronte contributed with the preparation of Romance Was Born Resort 2018 runway show at the Mercedes Benz Fashion week event in Sydney.
It’s Bronte draws inspiration from modernist art and boasts an ultra femme style embracing all body shapes and genders. Her garments use a contrast of strong geometric shapes and her signature ultra femme frills all incorporating a vivid and bold colour palette.
‘Circulate’ is the Most recent collection from It’s Bronte-a further development from her Graduate collection ‘Moving Forms’. This collection explores ideas of modernist aesthetic and is particularly influenced by artist William Kandinsky. It reflects the concept that one shape gives direction to all the elements of a garment. Circulate also challenges the ideas of what fashion is and who and how to wear it.
