If you are someone who dreams of new and shiny things with an organic feel to it, Acler will make your dreams come true. Ahead of their runway appearance at the Adelaide Festival, Acler has reveled new season pieces true to their refined style using delicate laces and luxurious silks, as well as their renowned structured fabrics. Based in Unley, Adelaide – both directors Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto have been widely successful; with their brand stocked all over Australia. Not only is Acler in high demand online with big companies such as Myer, Revolve Clothing and The Con-nection delted behind them, but the duo also expanded the brand internationally, taking Acler to the States.

The process of an Acler garment is one that takes time and effort. The designers shape each piece over a 12-month period to ensure the final product is perfect. You can tell that fabrication is a key focus for the Acler girls. With both designers coming from different styles, together they bring a balance of feminine draping and tailored looks to kill. To Forth and Ritorto, a simple shirt is more than just a simple shirt. The detail these two show within their designs is impeccable. The garments are completely high fashion, but still ready-to-wear.

Worn by the likes of our very own Kate Richie and Jodi Gordon, Acler is no stranger to the A-listers. While only gaining a reputation from about a year ago, fashion bloggers from all around the world are showcasing what Acler has to offer. Who needs marketing when you have bloggers, right?

The monochromatic colour palette returns from last year and will dominate the runway at the Adelaide Fashion Festival this year with hints of bronze, navy and dark/light olive tones. It will be fantastic to see this local brand style the runway once again with their new minimalistic collection.

Acler will take part in the ‘New Classics’ Runway on Friday, 21 October as part of the Adelaide Fashion Festival. To see the full list of designers taking part, and to buy tickets, head to the Adelaide Fashion Festival website.
