:: Spotlight :: L.Maree launches in Melbourne

By: Carmine Pascuzzi; photos by Owen Stuart

A new label launched recently in Melbourne called L.Maree. Run by two young designers, Louise Pantalone and Carla Palmerio, who are still studying at RMIT University, the launch went exceedingly well with lots of friends and family attending.

Already, the label has been stocked in leading boutiques around Melbourne. The Spring/Summer 2006/07 collection is full of colour and energy. Being ‘feminine not girly’, it has a strong influence on quality and fit. All garments have been hand made, leaving minimal allowance for inaccuracy. Each of the designs has its own individuality and unique feature. Using delicate fabrications and chic design elements, it has led to an exclusive position within the marketplace.

The launch was hosted by Model Behaviour owners Sarita Stella and Danielle Atkin (both wore L.Maree designs.). 26 garments were paraded on the night. Denim from ML DENIM featured as a contrast to our designs, giving the consumer a more street-savvy look. Jewellery supplied by MISQUE, added that extra glamorous attitude.
