During the 2012 L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, these designers gathered at an event called Asian Pacific Runway to showcase their collections and celebrate their success in the Australian fashion market.
Lorraine Henrietta Lau came from Singapore. Lorraine launched her sleep wear label online more than a year ago and says she has enjoyed good responses from customers, including lots of orders from United States.
“I like the Aussie’s fashion because they’re down to earth and very colourful as well”, she said.
Lorraine says while her background is Asian, she is also influenced by Australian fashion.
While Lorraine targets an international online market, other designers focus on Australian customers with Asian backgrounds, who have particular requirements, especially when it comes to size.
Kevin Au is from a chain of boutique stores that specialise in Japanese street fashion in Australia.
“For Australians, their size is much bigger compared to Asians, so with Aussie brands the sizing is large. But for us Asians, because we are always skinny, it’s really hard to fit into those outfits”, he said.
Raine also designs for the Asian Australian niche market. She started her own label five years ago. Her designs are mainly clothes for Asian girls to wear when they go out, and she also imports accessories from Hong Kong and Korea to sell with her outfits.
“When Asians dress up, we do prefer to have silhouette. Because we have smaller frames and smaller sizes, we do prefer clothes a bit more fitted. Australian style is a bit more loose, flowy and casual.”
Aron Katona is an Australian designer who admires fashion from Asia.
“It’s very daring. It’s so different from Caucasian Australian fashion. They are very avant-garde and they are not afraid to take risks. I’m actually drawn to that because my label is very much like that, a little bit of risk taking.”.
In his design, Aron wants to move away from mainstream fashion. He aims to take elements from theatre but create clothes that are also wearable. His upcoming show will be a dragon inspiration fashion show to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.
Listen to Aron speak more about his inspiration and why he values the Asian market in Australia.
