Caitlin Shearer for Karla Špetić. AW10.

Okay, it's finally time to reveal a collaboration that i've been keeping under my hat for months now...
Last year I had the pleasure of working with Karla Špetić to create a custom print to grace her AW10 clothing range, Dreamer. Based upon an illustration i had made in the past (Violet, who also features in the print) and out mutual love for Sofia Coppola films, a collection of languid bedroom girls were born onto the paper. The illustrations were then printed onto silk and turned into a cropped blazer, a swishy gathered mini skirt and an elegant dress with cut-out details.
Karla's clothing is beautifully constructed and perfectly feminine. Both elegance and Whimsical charm are captured in this collection, and i'm glad the girls i have created have been given such a gorgeous home. Needless to say, I am very proud of this collaboration and my first foray into the world of fashion.
There shall be a launch party in Sydney to celebrate, and details will be posted in the coming weeks.
Please take a look at Karla's website , where you can view the rest of her beautiful AW10 collection.


With love,
Caitlin Shearer.

  10. Wow, congratulations! This collaboration is so exciting to me because I love your work and I love printed fabric. You have such a fine sense of color and line that is perfect for textiles.

    Best wishes, Amelia

  19. You should be proud, this is so beautiful. It works so well! I can't believe that your print looks as good as fabric as it does on paper.

    Oh and I'm so glad you have & enjoy the Shironeko Holga! It makes me like it even more! I'll be careful not to set it off in my bag.
