Retro Made de­signs

Eastern Reporter - - Front Page - Kristie Lim

EM­BLE­TON de­signer Lisa Es­trano will be fill­ing the hole for bright ’60s and ’70s-in­spired cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories in the Perth fash­ion scene at the Made on the Left Christ­mas mar­kets.

Ms Es­trano has been run­ning her stu­dio and store Sad Jane in Bon Marche Ar­cade, Perth, for four years.

She gath­ers fab­rics from across the globe and trans­forms them into clothes, ac­ces­sories and gifts. She said she would have small ac­ces­sories such as hair ties, head­bands and stock­ing fillers, dresses, men’s wear and pot plant hold­ers at her stall.

“I don’t de­sign the fab­rics my­self – it is just from a bit of trav­el­ling and your nor­mal re­tail shops. A lot of it can sit here for years be­fore I know what I want to make with it,” she said.

Ms Es­trano said her mo­ti­va­tion stemmed from her love of dress­mak­ing.

“I think there is a bit of a hole in the fash­ion mar­ket in terms of hav­ing that kind of bright, happy, ’60s and ’70s in­flu­ence,” she said.

“I just make things up I like and hope that other peo­ple do as well and that is what keeps me go­ing.”

The mar­kets will be held at Princess May Park in Fre­man­tle from Novem­ber 17 to 18.

She will also be tak­ing part in the Perth Mak­ers Mar­ket at Ya­gan Square on Novem­ber 16.­mu­ni­ d488214
