Julie White blends bush and ocean in her newest range of vibrant prints
If there is an accessory more effortlessly versatile than the scarf then we’d like to see it. Tied around your neck, noggin or waist, the scarf can do things that belts and jewels just can’t. Adelaide-based designer Julie White has recently unveiled a new range of scarves and tights that have been informed by a love of Australia’s native flora and fauna.
Bold, vibrant, exciting – these are three words that sum up Julie White’s art fashion accessories perfectly. The designer has made a name for herself in the independent fashion world for her range of hand-drawn prints, which are transformed into soft silk scarves, nylon knee-high socks and full-length tights. Julie’s latest collection – called Lola’s Garden – evokes the comforting feel of nature, from the Australian wilderness to the crash of the coast.
Designed at Julie’s Adelaide studio, Lola’s Garden features prints boasting depictions of various native flora including eucalyptus, wattle, bottle brush and even a few critters thrown into the mix. The scarves are digitally printed and feature hand-rolled edges, while the socks are created using a unique dye print process. The range is made in limited quantities and will likely get snatched up quickly. You can get your hands on some of Julie White’s scarves and accessories online or at artisan in Fortitude Valley.
