Tina Kalivas

 I discovered this fashion designer a little over a month ago and was really excited to blog about her. Her name is Tina Kalivas and her 2009 collection is to die for! She is an Australian designer, based out of New South Wales, and trained in London for 8 years with several designers, one of whom being the extraordinary British designer, Alexander McQueen.

Her latest collection appears to reinterpret patterns, textures and colors from African and Polynesian cultures. I just love the vibrant colors and structural (nearly architectural) forms. She's able to apply all these dramatic and boldly graphic details and yet the final result is still something totally wearable!

 And the artist at work in her studio...
