Must See Incredible Victorian-Inspired Fashion From SA Designer

Local SA label Dark Thorn Clothing based from Mundoora is making huge waves with their take on classic Victorian style detail. You’ll want a closer look.

There’s a name you need to keep an eye out for from country SA that has reimagined the class and sophistication of the Victorian era of clothing for the modern day.

When she was only 18, Tori-Anne Gill started designing clothes on a farm in Mundoora and recently she’s been blowing the Adelaide Fashion Industry away with her label, Dark Thorn Clothing.

But it’s her attention to detail that makes Gill’s designs really stand out in Glam’s eyes, with soft lace trimmings, intricate embroidery and textured fabrics adding distinct touches that you won’t find anywhere else.

Her next showcase is at the Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Festival on October 29th, alongside a night of Mexican inspire food, drinks and entertainment. Grab your tickets now from here.
