Life & Style Weekend - - CONTENTS - WORDS: SARAH DIONY­SIUS

Cre­ated on the Sun­shine Coast, Rafia the La­bel en­com­passes ev­ery­thing about the coastal, laid­back life­style. The vi­sion was to cre­ate wear­able clas­sic pieces for the young modern day woman.

The gar­ments are de­signed here on the Coast and made us­ing eth­i­cal ma­te­ri­als such as rayon and linen.

The la­bels aims to be sus­tain­able with only a small hand­ful of each de­sign pro­duced and all of their of­f­cuts are used to make smaller gar­ments or ac­ces­sories.

Here are some of the la­bels’ lat­est looks.

1 The Freda top is made from 100 per cent linen and is avail­able in yel­low and white.

2 The boho Mika skirt set has a cute lit­tle shirred top teamed with a flow­ing maxi skirt with elas­tic waist and tie de­tail.

3 The Maria top is made from a beige crin­kle cot­ton and has elas­tic across the top and tie shoul­ders.

4 The Zara shorts are avail­able in crisp white or beige. They have a front zip open­ing with elas­tic back and raw hem.

5 The Si­enna dress is made from cool, crin­kle cot­ton.

6 The Twiggy pinafore was de­signed to be worn by it­self or with some­thing un­der­neath. Team it with a vin­tage blouse for a great win­ter look.
