Friends of Couture - Vintage Inspired Style
Friends of Couture is an Australian based label that specialise in vintage inspired fashion. Founded in 2008 by Mark Zander who was already a keen collector of everything retro or vintage. He decided to put his vintage obsession to good use by forming Friends of Couture.
The label takes inspiration from the past to create a collection that is both classic and stylish with a vintage look. Designer Jo Matheson came on board to create looks based on Mark's vision. She takes the playfullness and cuteness from the past and transforms those elements into fun, wearable, vintage inspired pieces.
Friends of Couture has created collections that are timeless yet they give a nod to decades past. Fabrics are carefully selected to ensure the pieces last and full care and attention is given to the shape and fit of the designs. They manage to get the balance right between vintage style and modern wear.
