Raquel Diniz 

The designer uniquely portrays the Brazilian lifestyle: combining beautiful and feminine designs with craftsmanship. She describes dresses as the essence of her work. When asked what makes them so unique: "The easiness of it. A great dress slides over your body. It can make you look effortlessly chic while still being comfortable." Her designs embody a woman that is feminine and strong. A woman becomes powerful through her freedom and the Brazilian flair transmitted through each part of the collection. 

The inspiration for her spring/summer collection 2022 is the Villa Nara Mondadori, designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. It's a modernist house admist La Belle Époque mainsons. According to Raquel Diniz, the architect's organic essence inspired her, combined with Italian design to form an organic aesthetic. 

“Brazilians enjoy dressing up, they try to reflect outside how they feel inside. That results in vibrant and cheerful colours, prints and soft flowing fabrics which are very feminine. That’s how I design, bringing those emotions to life.“ - Raquel Diniz

Zimmermann

Zimmermann is an iconic Australian brand founded in 1991 by Nicky and Simone Zimmermann. The brand stands for feminity, unique color combinations, and delicate prints and mirrors the beauty and power of sisterhood. Many women intuitively feel drawn to this strong bond that gives every collection a feeling of authenticity and heartfelt feminity.

The spring-summer collection 2022 is named "The Dancer", symbolizing the duality of a dancer. Athletic power and strength combined with grace and fluidity. It allows the wearer to tap into their emphatic nature while honouring their inner strength. 

“I could never have achieved what we have without Simone. While the business has evolved and fashion has changed, Simone has been a voice of reason and a constant.” - Nicky Zimmermann

Each designer has a unique approach to design, but all share the firm belief in the duality of a woman: strength and softness. Their dresses represent hope. Furthermore, a woman who dares to be optimistic and trust in new beginnings.
