I have recently discovered a gorgeous young self titled label Doris Q which showcased its latest collection titled “Chasing Ice” at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014. The label has already gained a loyal following of celebrities, popular online stores like Nasty Gal & Urban Outfitters and some of the top fashion magazines like Elle, Harper’s Bazaar Australia and Italian Vogue.
Doris Q’s latest collection was inspired by the beautiful “Chasing Ice” documentary by acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog. Doris’ vivid imagination gave birth to the dramatic ready to wear collection comprising of waterproof fabrics, neoprene, sporty mesh, and fine silks. The prints are reminiscent of the bird view glaciers and breaking ice. ‘The way the glaciers moved and icebergs collapsed in to the sea reminded me of a sleeping Tyrannosaurus waking up.’ explained Doris, ‘it was haunting and spectacular at the same time, which I wanted to reflect in this collection.’
