IF you followed my Melbourne Fashion Week ventures, then you’ll certainly remember this eye catching two piece by casper&pearl. The mastermind behind the label, Stacey Hendrickson, is a 22-year-old self-taught designer based in Adelaide who is already making some serious waves within the fashion industry…
What is your latest collection, A/W ABRACADARA, all about?
‘Abracadabra’ is all about everything magical and a bit creepy. I was inspired by cults, the 1600’s ‘witch trial’ era, superstitions and conspiracy theories, and of course nature and flora. In the 1600’s it is believed that people would inscribe the word ‘Abracadabra’ into their clothing to protect them from evil and dark magic, to tap in to that old style magic we have handwritten it into our exclusive print.
You’ve been selected to show at MBFWA! How does that feel?
Holy moly, so good. MBFW is the most prestigious fashion event in the world so to be recognised on a larger scale makes the long days and nights and sacrifices all worth it.
If casper&pearl had a theme song what would it be?
Creator – Santigold
You have really developed you’re own signature design aesthetic. Where do you look for inspiration?
Oh thankyou very much – we look inside our deepest imagination. We find inspiration in art, history, nature, and photography (we’re really loving Synchrodogs and Joshua Anderson at the moment.)
Tell us a secret about casper&pearl’s future plans…
casper&pearl is going to be stocked in Melbourne gem, Lady Petrova very soon!
