Recollection offers quality, innovative and Australian-inspired fashion with imagery and prints designed to remind the wearer of home. This independent label is owned and operated by designer Philippa Soutberg. This is Philippa’s second year at FASHFEST.
The fashion created under the Recollection label is inspired by the designer’s personal experiences of travelling through Australia’s natural and rural landscape. Philippa wants to connect with consumers who share a similar appreciation of this country’s natural environment and of clothing that reminds them of travelling when home and of home when travelling.
Philippa’s collections are practical yet sophisticated by design. This fashion designer doesn’t follow the latest trends but rather creates timeless pieces that are enjoyable to wear.
Garments are made for Australian women aged between 25 and 45 years of age, who are educated, interested in their surroundings and have a fine appreciation of both art and fashion.
Recollection aims to inspire wearers to renew their appreciation of the beauty of Australia’s natural fauna and flora, even when living in urban environments and surrounded by cityscapes.
All garments are designed and manufactured in Canberra.
Philippa completed her Bachelor of Design (Fashion Design) at Canberra Institute of Technology in 2013.
