Dark Thorn to Paris Fashion Week
In the world of fashion, sleep is for the weak - Tori-Anne Gill, the talented designer behind Dark Thorn Clothing, has her sights firmly set on 2018 Paris Fashion Week!
After being invited into the hallowed halls graced by couture veterans such as Yves Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney and Balmain, Tori-Anne is one step closer to making her dream of presenting at Fashion Week a reality.
She posseses a strong vision, unique garments, the skill set and a certain je ne sais quois; she just needs assistance with funding to make it happen.
Being a small town girl from Mundoora, Tori-Anne created Dark Thorn Clothing literally in her own back paddock. She began by simply printing her drawings onto shirts and has evolved to hand-crafting her pieces that are being sold around the globe. At just 22 years old, Tori-Anne has already had some highly notable achievements - from being invited to The Oxford Fashion Studio founded by Victoria Beckham to hosting her own pop-up boutique in Adelaide.
Inspired by the Victorian era, Tori-Anne uses sustainable products in her Dark Thorn designs and is a proud supporter of Australian owned and made products. Naturally this means that as an emerging designer, she doesn’t have a fraction of the funding required to make this goal come to fruition, and that’s where you come in! Any donation small or big is appreciated, a little goes a long way (potentially all the way to 'Le Grand Paris').
Tori-Anne is aiming to raise $30,000 AUD which will help pay for runway fees, photography, videography, models and showroom costs. Please help Tori-Anne take Dark Thorn Clothing to Paris!
Runway cost - $6,834.74AUD
Pool Models - $4,008.34AUD
Runway Photography - $1,353.18AUD
Runway Videography - $1,353.18AUD
Studio Photography - $1,747.20AUD
Backstage Photography - $334.03AUD
If the $15,000AUD goal get's broken and we reach $30,000AUD the extra money will go into showroom costs. Every $1,000AUD over $15.6kAUD will help put one garment into the showroom.
Showroom: $1,019.22AUD per garment x 17 garments = $17,326.74AUD
The showroom is a place for all the designers who partake in Oxford Fashion Studio's to display their designs to buyers, bloggers and stylists throughout the whole week of Paris Fashion Week.
