In the Debut finals: Totomoto

With just a few short weeks until Fashion Exposed hits Melbourne, anticipation is building for one of the fair’s highlights: the Debut competition. Debut shines the spotlight on up and coming designers and bestows sought-after prizes to its winning entrants.

One of the finalists in this year’s Accessories category is Totomoto, designed by Perth’s Cynthia Ellis. Gazing upon the label’s exotic, heavy gold pieces, it’s easy to imagine the “rugged desert like coastal surroundings” Ellis cites as inspiration. From spindly seahorses to serpents, butterflies and bees, the creatures that form Totomoto’s jewellery collection have a native appeal. Chunky rings with exotically hued stones are also a favourite.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
