South Australian Style Magazine : South Australian Style 35 Spring
36 SA STYLE SPRING 2O18 / SASTYLE #AFF/ It’s a runway debut for Adelaide girls Ivana Milosevic and Lisa Chakiris, who are at the forefront of sustainable, eco-conscious fashion with the launch of their new swimwear label Le Périple. Using fabric made from recycled plastic bottles and fishnets sourced from the ocean, the high-end swimwear is not only fabulous but also helps to reduce the waste in our oceans. LE PÉRIPLE Inspired by colour, texture and traditional millinery skills, local label PolkaCo works with weavers in northern Colombia and northwest Venezuela to make bright, fun hats and bags (each hat is made from 100 percent iraka palm straw and takes about eight hours to weave). Working with local tribes enables centuries-old handcraft traditions to continue and provides these communities with a sustainable income. POLKACO / SASTYLE #AFF/ (Left) polkaco: hat.
