Designer Feature – Carly Hunter


Carly Hunter is a designer from Perth who has had much success since winning the Perth Fashion Festival ‘New Generation’ award in 2007. The win led to Hunter showing her Autumn/Winter 2008 collection at the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival in March of this year. She has presented her 2008/09 Spring/Summer collection at StyleAid and the 2008 Perth Fashion Festival and now has stockists nation wide and in New Zealand.

Carly Hunter’s current collection – Spring/Summer 08/09 is titled ‘Temporary Shelters’.
The inspiration of the collection came as Hunter was preparing to travel around Europe with friends, an obsession grew on the idea of ‘the modern nomad’ and people who spend their entire lives moving from place to place.
“Each design is based on a ‘Temporary Shelter’ like a tent, a yurk, a tee pee, a cardboard box..and I looked at the simplicity of them all, their job is to provide shelter for a period of time and then be folded up and moved to another place.”
These ideas were incorporated into the collection by sharp folds in the fabric, zips, drawstrings and the geometrical cut of each design with a lot of fringing in reference to ‘tribal nomadic existence.’
