Designing from a young age Tessa MacGraw formally trained at both the Whitehouse Institute Of Design and KVB Institute (now Raffles) on scholarship acceptance. Fashion and Beauty PR Beth MacGraw spent her early career learning the fashion ropes in Sydney, London and New York. With a love of textiles, design and communications it seemed a logical step for the 2 sisters to join forces in fashion. In 2010, Beth and Tess left Sydney for a one-year design hiatus in their beloved New York City where they conceptualised their label and first collection from their tiny studio apartment on Prince st, Soho. Their time in New York gave them the creative push to start macgraw, so while this is a Sydney label, New York will always be considered its birthplace. Fusing classic silhouettes with polished, modern lines, macgraw is a shout out to the fashion savvy type with a penchant for unique touches. Beautiful fabrications and luxe yet wearable looks are fast becoming a signature for macgraw. Beth and Tessa have also come to enjoy the process of creating their own unique prints hand drawn in-house by Tessa. Injecting their unique personality into soft tailoring and separates, macgraw is attracting appreciation from a growing fan base within print media, key local stockists, social media and celebrity. Their designs are strong yet feminine and effortlessly elegant; a handwriting that’s drawing serious attention from all the right places.
