STRATEAS.CARLUCCI is a creative collaboration by Mario-Luca Carlucci and Peter Strateas, whose sensitive utilisation of industrial design and art in the application of fabric and texture, has won them many design accolades. The label debuted in the A/W 2012 season to a very select number of invited buyers in Paris. Media and industry alike praised the duo for their exquisite tailoring of woven Australian Merino wool and their quality in design, detail, finish and overall construction. 2014 heralded many awards for the brand including the prestigious Tiffany & Co National Design Award for excellence in design and quality. In July, judged by esteemed industry peers including Roland Mouret, STRATEAS.CARLUCCI was awarded dual winner of both the menswear and womenswear International Woolmark Prize Australia Regional Finals. Proving why they are set to be the next big thing in Australian fashion, Strateas and Carlucci were awarded GQ Designer of the Year in November 2014. Continuing with the same momentum, STRATEAS.CARLUCCI will represent Australia at the womenswear final of the International Woolmark Prize in Beijing in March 2015, returning to Melbourne to present a solo show at Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci will return to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia to present their trans-seasonal collection, T R A N S P L A N T at Carriageworks, The Theatre in April, concluding with a presentation of their mens and womens collections, on schedule at Paris Fashion Week in late 2015.
