Swoop set­ting stan­dards

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - with Des­mond Eddy

WA-based duo Nikolina Er­gic and Daniel Ro­manin met while study­ing fash­ion at the Cen­tral In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy.

Fresh out of fash­ion school, they in­stinc­tively took steps to launch the na­tional award-win­ning la­bel One Fell Swoop.

The part­ner­ship has been a force to be reck­oned with in the Aus­tralian fash­ion in­dus­try since win­ning the Mercedes-Benz Aus­tralian Fash­ion Week Start Up Pro­gram in their de­but year and the One Fell Swoop spring sum­mer 2015 col­lec­tion, Serendip­ity, only con­tin­ues this suc­cess.

The fo­cus of the range is to keep the fab­rics as weight­less as pos­si­ble while re­tain­ing the la­bel’s sig­na­ture fe­male sil­hou­ette.

Dresses are un­com­pli­cated yet el­e­gant, be­ing draped asym­met­ri­cally and wrapped.

Er­gic and Ro­manin fig­ured out how to do more with less in this col­lec­tion and their de­sign phi­los­o­phy is sim­ple – to make clothes that are fem­i­nine and de­sir­able.

Ma­tur­ing into a la­bel that fo­cuses on wear­a­bil­ity and tai­lor­ing, One Fell Swoop will showcase at Tel­stra Perth Fash­ion Fes­ti­val’s Fash­ion Paramount, Perth Con­cert Hall, on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 18.

The 6pm event, 3300 Miles Apart, will also fea­ture Mor­ri­son, Nom's and Zam­bani.
