NICOLA Finetti has joined the stellar line-up of labels showcasing their collections at Gold Coast Fashion Week in February. Set to unveil his prefall 2012 collection, Mr Finetti said “the Gold Coast was a perfect market for the Nicola Finetti brand”. “I am very ‘excited to be able to participate in a new event which may be the beginning of a very successful fashion week,” he said. With a high-end label such as Nicola Finetti added to the bill, it will help put GCFW on the map both in Australia and abroad.
“I can only (contribute) with my presence, but it is the organisers that must try to make the event exciting,” Mr Finetti said. Mr Finetti said we could expect big things from his runway show. “The new collection features a lot of new silhouettes,” he said. “It is mostly a cool collection which expands from day wear to cocktail and after-hour dresses.”
Finetti brings back the elements of the shapes and all that the eras speak to him about and weaves them into his trademark cuts and silhouettes. His is a modern twist on classic beauty where each piece portrays ideas of construction, drape, bold colours and Finetti’s pioneering fusion of contrasting and contradictory elements into beautiful wholes, which have given his creations the power to take our breath away.
Nicola Finetti is sold extensively throughout department store giant Myer, in his flagship stores in Sydney and Melbourne and all over the world, in places such as New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, France, the United Kingdom, Russia, Germany and in the United States of America. He enjoys the support of an established clientele that spans through to cover celebrities such as Jessica Chastain, Jessica Szhor, Samara Weaving, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Delta Goodrem and Rebecca Judd among others, as well as the fashion press, where he has always and continues to receive great editorial coverage in magazines such Vogue Australia, Marie Claire, Harpers Bazaar Australia and In Style Australia and UK. However it is the everyday person, more than anything, which Finetti speaks about that provides the very inspiration to continue to push the boundaries. During his visit to Australia, Godfrey Deeny from Fashion Wire Daily said that: “this designer deserves applause for his determination to push the envelope and break new ground. In a far too derivative Australian season, his is a fresh new voice.”
Finetti’s work has been bought by the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, which is known for its collection of innovative designers and their creations. Further solidifying Finetti’s status as an innovative force in the fashion arena is the Powerhouse Museum’s permanent exhibition of his creative processes in ‘Sourcing the Muse’.
