Introducing: Jacinta James

Since graduating from RMIT’s prestigious fashion program Jacinta Demetriou has spent time in Paris learning couture techniques from creatives at Jean Paul Gaultier, Madame Gres, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior and Nina Ricci as well as acting as a creative liason for Rick Owens. Now, she launches the debut collection for her own label titled Jacinta James. ‘Arctic Willow’ for Autumn Winter 2016 is based upon the life-cycle of the Woolly Bear Caterpillar which freezes solid and then thaws itself up to 14 times as the seasons change before transforming into a tiger moth. Jacinta James evokes this tale of harsh beauty and transience through clashing textures of intertwined leather, frayed silk georgette and fuzzy mohair plus an abstract print derived from cracked ice and cocoons.
