FASHION MEETS CHARITY W R I T T E N B Y L A U R A TA R A N I U K

T ADELAIDE’S ROYALE COLLECTION WRITTEN BY CHARLOTTE KLEUT

A

delaide designer Jaimie Sortino has an eye for romantic fairytale confections with a contemporary twist. His latest collection, Rex Royale, brings you the princess moments most girls dreams of. 'Rex meaning sovereign or royalty, seemed to fit the inspiration behind this collection,” Sortino says. Inspired by real-life screen princess and style icon Grace Kelly, Rex Royale has been designed for women who want to create that ‘wow’ moment in a room. “And who wouldn’t want a Grace Kelly moment?” asks Sortino. For this collection, Sortino used the 50s era in fashion as his

source of inspiration, taking the iconic silhouettes and giving the designs a modern-day edge. Sortino chose to design and create his own textiles such as dip-dyed satins, which form beautiful drapes and shapes. You can also expect to see intricately beaded lace, soft pastels and rich red and dark blue hues, signature to Sortino's style and label. Rex Royale mirrors a simplistic, modest style, yet embraces pure elegance sure to make any woman feel like royalty. FACEBOOK.COM/JAIMIE.SORTINODESIGNS

CEO Will Bruce and co-founder Andy Tong, along with ambassadors Hugh Sherridan and Gary Sweet, are raising awareness about breast cancer, prostate cancer, mental health, youth homelessness, animal welfare and marine conservation by creating a common talking point of serious issues in a not so serious fashion.“Tied Together’s products present a great way to create a common talking point for serious matters,” says Bruce. For a tidy $39-$59 you can join in the love with 30 percent of each sale donated to various Aussie charities including National Breast Cancer foundation’s ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ campaign, Beyondblue, RSPCA and more.
