Bim Kenesis

Bim Kenesis, the new Perth-based label, is steadily attracting interest for its artfully quirky, highly covetable collections. Since its inception late 2005 it has been earmarked as a new emerging talent, consistently receiving accolades across the industry. With a debut collection snapped up nationally, and its 2007 short-listed SOYA status, many have tagged Bim Kenesis as a label to watch.

Bree Kiddey, the imaginative young designer behind Bim Kenesis, has utilized skills honed during her Curtin University fashion and textiles degree well, creating a label that celebrates her love of music, movies, art and a host of current obsessions. Bim Kenesis features bold and sweet must-have pieces with unique signature aesthetic. Exclusive prints, intricate cuts and clever designs are incorporated within garments that are edgy and fun, but wearable.

Electric Landscapes is the eagerly anticipated winter 2008 collection from Bim Kenesis. The new collection has a graphic yet girly aesthetic, so popular with the label’s growing fan base. Its inspiration comes from all things electric - including atoms, magnetic fields and lightning, as well as from diverse sources such as 1980’s sweater patterns, to urban landscape photography.

The collection pieces feature exclusive prints, quirky lace through belt details, triangular panels and draping reminiscent of power transformers and conductors. The seasons colour palette includes sky and midnight blue, fire red, metal silver and zappy yellow highlights in baby combed cottons, silks, sequins, drapey jerseys and cotton denim and drills.

Prices in the collection range from $149 to $330. You can find Bim Kenesis in Sydney at Mish Mash (Bondi) and Roof on Fire (Paddington) and online at

DavisEyes S/S Launch - 'Classified' Collection

Justine Davis created DavisEyes, the 'luxe punk glam' label, in 2006. Achieving interest from local and international buyers since its inception, DavisEyes was discovered through Australian Fashion Week and achieved critical acclaim soon after.

The current DavisEyes collection, titled 'Classified', is a mix of chic tattoo inspired print and body sculpting lines.

"In this collection, I have created an exciting mix of detailed pieces that include, as well as go beyond, traditional wardrobe staples", says Justine. "Not just black, but white, metallic and bold colours in silks and jerseys combined with unique luxe trims bring everyday clothes to life with a modern touch of fantasy".

Meet Bert's Friend

Meet Tessa Richardson, she has just launched the label Bert's Friend which consists mainly of large and pretty rings.

About Tessa...

I'm doing my final year at the National Art School in Sydney, where lately I have been exploring various means of collage.
I became frustrated when my work was contained to 2D pieces and wanted to incorporate my ideas into life - collage you can wear.


I'm aiming for a quirky and pretty style that derives from Victorian bourgeois,70's floral patterns and antique tea cups using vintage buttons, patterned stones, rhinestones from Germany and found objects - all with 24 carrot plated bases.

Where to find these beautiful treasures...

All are hand made, they range from $20 to $60 and you can find them at Fringe Bar Markets at Paddington most Saturdays and by contacting me at
