We wholeheartedly appreciate a designer who doesn't take things too seriously — and Ingrid Verner knows a thing or two about having fun with her collections.
We were lucky enough to chat with the designer in the lead-up to her AAFW 'Lost Resort' show yesterday and then we sent CPC pal Ryan Cullen backstage to snap the very cute collection — get a load of the nostalgic and eyecatching prints in the gallery above!
How would you describe your label in a sentence?
VERNER provides light relief at times when it is most needed.
Did you have a particular person in mind when designing this collection?
Anyone with a sense of humour.
Most exciting and most overwhelming thing about fashion week?

Any final words for everyone who helped out with your show?
Thank you to the team that’s supported me with this show and to my beautiful family and friends.
