Launched in 2016, autark was created as a response to both the needs of the modern woman and the wide-ranging impact of the fashion industry on the world. Head designer and founder of the brand, Sophia, creates garments from the most luxurious of silks, cottons, linens and an array of natural fibres, that are carefully considered in their construction for maximum wearability and versatility.
Her designs are reflective not only in their function, juxtaposition of fabrics and minute detail but in the way they are constructed, all locally in her home of Adelaide, Australia.
Sophia’s passionate belief in the slow fashion movement ensures that wastage is minimised through the limited and attentive production of pieces, while her convictions ensure that all autark garments are created ethically and fairly.
Innovative and bold yet feminine designs are the hallmark of autark pieces, created in mind for a woman who is strong, individual, and knows her own mind. Autark’s award-winning designs have shown at the Adelaide Fashion Festival in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and at Melbourne Fashion Week in 2018.
