This outstanding Spring 2011 collection by Arnsdorf (designer Jade Sarita Arnott) was a clear stand-out when it was shown at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, June 2010 in Sydney. Arnott the talent who created Arnsdorf studied a Bachelor of Creative Arts and the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) and then studied Fashion at RMIT, both in Melbourne, Australia. This collection had echoes of Phoebe Philo for Céline, with the neutral and earthy tones shaped into a sharp and sleek tailored aesthetic. The materials are luxurious and the designs themselves absolutely perfect in terms of cut and suitability to the female form. It has an understated femininity about it which makes it a real competitor to brands particularly in France. The pink, grey, white and mauve shattered print is perhaps the most impressive feature of the entire collection and would be a very smart fashion investment.
