Designer of Dark Thorn Clothing, Tori-Anne Gill celebrated the label’s 2016 collection release last Thursday night with an exclusive 'Glam & Gram' soiree held at The Curious Squire on O’Connell Street.
The all-Australian label first launched in 2013, with Gill feeling that the styles, cuts and designs that she wanted to see in the fashion world were not available to her. Unleashing her creativity, she released her first collection, embracing the theme of vintage punk rock. Now, in 2016, the brand still pays homage to vintage threads, but now with a focus on reimagined Victorian period clothing. The latest collection, 'New Moon,' consists of structured garments, lace, embroidery, textured fabrics and a whole lot of black to portray an era of mystical elegance.
Showcasing the many different designs of the New Moon collection, The Curious Squire beer garden made for an intimate night of fashion, food and drinks. Gill chatted to guests, took photos with her modelled designs and enjoyed the well-deserved limelight of her latest project. Gill says that her work is a representation of herself, with each collection telling a story. This is all stitched into her creations, which reflect feelings of dark romance, glamour and mystique.
Dark Thorn Clothing is a strong supporter of Australian work industries and fashion, with Gill personally making sure that her designs are produced under high quality work health and safety standards and fair pay. This is refreshing in today’s fast-paced fashion world, where ‘fair’ isn’t usually a focus. Dark Thorn Clothing items are made with sustainability in mind, and with the hope that garments will stay in families for generations to come. With this in itself adding to the vintage values of the brand, it can’t be argued that Gill is a girl to watch on the fashion scene, and is leading the way for alternative fashion.
