Paige Rowe is Adelaide's latest fashion success story. With a Diploma in Fashion and almost 20 years experience as a successful pattern maker and designer under her belt, Rowe takes on her latest project; launching her self-titled label and debut collection earlier this month at the iconic Queens Theatre.
The debut collection features 27 pieces ranging from footwear to dresses, bottoms and outwear in irresistible fabrics like stretch denim (face it... we all love it), silk and superfine 100% merino wool. Along with these quality textiles, Paige focuses on creating an easy to wear, luxurious aesthetic with soft-layering and exclusive prints.
“I try to design clothes that you could sit down in all day at work, and still look appropriate at after work drinks," Rowe says.
What else makes Paige Rowe stand out from the crowd? Her impeccable knowledge of garment construction. All designs are made to order meaning your insured not only the highest quality but also the perfect fit!
Personally we can't go past the fresh and clean colour palette of this S/S16 collection, proving white and grey never go out of style. The collection also features simple silhouettes with innovative twists, like a contrasting splice, zipper detailing or uneven hemlines. It's casual dressing that can be taken from day to night.
Paige’s collection can be viewed at her pop up store located at Hyde Park. If you're feeling up for a full make over book a free styling session with Paige Rowe and her team of stylists.

It is a direct antithesis to the breakable, synthetic materials and fast fashion that is churned out by chain stores en masse. McRae designs, sources materials, and sews each leather piece herself.
