Leading the way in contemporary fashion, Vanessa Moe’s collections capture the allure of her native Brazil and her thirst for innovation. The Sydney-based couture designer is revitalising craftsmanship to create some of the most exciting and visually stunning clothing of our time. Her sophisticated ready-to-wear pieces and bespoke eveningwear in fine fabrics ensure the perfect fit and are wowing the industry with their instantly recognizable elegant and modern edge. Moe’s creative flair is deep-rooted; surrounded by art, music and rich culture as a child, she was inspired to up-cycle her parents’ clothes, forging her own style and later, making evening dresses for her sisters and friends. Travelling to Sydney to complete her Bachelor’s degree at Whitehouse Institute of Design, she became the first designer to create 3D printed apparel in Australia, leading her to design the costume for Empire of The Sun’s 2014 tour and her own wedding dress, which was later acquired by a bridal house. Vanessa Moe is launching her first ready-to-wear collection at MBFW 2015.
