Brian De Carvalho

Brian De Carvalho is a women and gender-queer apparel brand known for its expertly handcrafted theatrical garments, largely concentrated on corset tops and corset dress designs. Each outfit is inspired by motifs from the 18th century – this theme is combined with contemporary narratives centred around ongoing queer issues to create beautiful one-of-a-kind statement pieces, each giving its own message and creating an elegant silhouette on the wearer. Started out as only a hobby, we look forward to seeing what the fashion label delivers next as they continue to make waves in the industry.

Delta of Phoenix

Delta of Phoenix is a luxury, sustainable slow-fashion brand founded and run solely by Francesca Newman. It is her goal for the wearer to feel bold and confident, something not difficult to achieve in these beautifully eccentric pieces shouting out their individuality. With a dreamy colour palette, the sky’s the limit for this brand – from hot pinks to blacks to yellows, the expertly crafted sheer dresses from the AW22 collection have matching arm sleeves available to complete the look.
