In the wake of an impressive showing in the swimwear category at RAFW, this season marks the official Australian debut of rising star Roopa Pemmaraju’s eponymous label.
After making waves in her native India for the last three years, Roopa’s aptly titled ‘Beach Goddesses’ collection is uber-luxe and made from 100% silk. Kaftans,
maxi dresses, harem pants and swimwear, take you from beach to bar in laid back glamour.
Inspired by the divine beings of Asian mythology, Roopa has created stunning prints in hues of sea green, sky blue, sunny yellow and fiery red, worked back with holy white and stormy grey.
Each piece is designed in Roopa’s adopted home town of Melbourne, and hand beaded and manufactured at her studio in Bangalore, India, where she spends half of the year. How nice for her!
Priced from $300 to $800, ‘Beach Goddesses’ will have you praying for warmer weather and is available now. Visit www.roopapemmaraju.com for more.
