After seeing Gypsea’s collection at MBFWA this year I was excited to find out about this Australian grown label. Consisting of renowned world-class surf photographer Scott Bauer and Bali-based designer Emma Jones, Gypsea incorporates Scott’s world-class photographs into Emma’s love and inspiration from travel, the beach and the ocean. This unique collaboration of the two artists brings together their love for design and all things beautiful. They manipulate these images and styles together to create flattering, striking and unique pieces of wearable art.
Their latest collection “The Natural History Collection” celebrates images of some of nature’s most amazing creatures. The inspiration of the immense natural beauty in nature is the core of the Gypsea brand.
I am excited to share with you some words from the designers as well as some more imagery from the Fashion Week show…
