Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - Kaylee Martin Check out col­lec­tion, page 14

CLASH­ING ad­ven­tur­ous at­tire with a con­ser­va­tive mar­ket, one lo­cal de­signer is aim­ing to bring a taste of the world’s fash­ion cap­i­tals to Perth.

Como res­i­dent In­tan Zuhuri is the cre­ative be­hind WA la­bel SISS on Bare.

Hav­ing lived in Lon­don, Mi­lan and Malaysia, Zuhuri’s eclec­tic taste in style draws in a niche, ad­ven­tur­ous clien­tele.

“I was brought up in the UK, so I’ve got a sense of that Lon­don style, and in Lon­don no one cares what ev­ery­one else thinks when it comes to fash­ion,” she said.

“I think a lot of women in WA are quite con­ser­va­tive, they don’t of­ten want to ex­plore some­thing that can bring out their per­son­al­ity, they want to be safe and blend in.”

SISS on Bare’s lat­est au­tumn/win­ter col­lec­tion In­die Regi-

d450673 ment was launched last month.

The eques­trian and mil­i­tary themed run­way show­cased 30 cut- ting-edge new sea­son looks for 2016.

“The lat­est col­lec­tion was ac­tu­ally in­spired by my hus­band,” Zuhuri said.

“I asked him what his dream job had been when he was grow­ing up and he told me he wanted to be an army pi­lot.

“Then he also men­tioned when he was younger he was in­volved with eques­trian; that re­ally in­spired me and I wanted to see how I could in­volve the two themes.”

Zuhuri said SISS on Bare had big things on the hori­zon for 2016.

“We’ve been in­vited to By­ron Bay for the fash­ion fes­ti­val in April, and also Kuala Lumpur for fash­ion week in Au­gust,” she said.
