Collection – AW13 ESCAPE INTO REALITY
The AW13 collection 'Escape Into Reality' is about 'Work/Corporate Life' versus 'Retirement and Leisure'. All designs in the collection are a contrast of casual and formal, relaxed and up tight. The entire collection is made to be extremely comfortable to wear, without looking so much that way.
Carly Hunter is an Australian designer, now based in Melbourne, but hailing from Perth, one of the world’s most isolated cities. She has an Advanced Diploma in Fashion and Textile Design and was awarded as a top graduate in 2005 at the Central Institute of Technology (TAFE) in Perth, Western Australia.

Her garments have appeared in magazines such as RUSSH, Yen, Grazia, Oyster and numerous newspaper and online publications. The label is currently represented by Under The Wing PR and Sales Agency based in Sydney, and stocked in a growing number of high-end fashion boutiques throughout Australia and online internationally. Her collections have been presented in Berlin, Germany during the 2008 Berlin Fashion Week as well as the Perth and Melbourne Fashion Festivals and the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival since 2008. For the first time Carly Hunter’s Summer 2011 Collection was presented at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week in May 2010, accompanied by a haunting film by Alex Goddard and original music composed by Kane Ikin of Solo Andata.
