CREATIVE DIRECTOR, LUCIA
Built from a sampling room in Manila, Lucia Josephine started her label. The gap in the market for accessible occassion-wear leading her inspiration.
IN CONVERSATION WITH LUCIA:"Starting out in Manila, Philippines (where I owe half of my heritage), I worked so hard to handpick the most talented team. I didn't have a traditional start to fashion, and I believe drive and connection allow anyone to learn.
In 2018 I was invited to showcase at Manila Fashion Week and was the first Australian designer to do so. This was an incredible turning point for myself and the label, as it allowed an opportunity to showcase the pure identity and integrity of Lucia Josephine, as the demand was growing for our evening wear pieces.
To this day I am so blessed to work closely with an incredible team (now with local production based in Brisbane, after covid) who are masters at their craft, and second to none in the industry.
A true honour to take the next chapter in the label’s journey, bridal."
