Barbara I Gongini
BARBARA I GONGINI is a Nordic brand established in the field of international luxury Avant-Garde fashion design, founded in 2005. The collections present a different take on Nordic garments, derived from a conceptual approach towards fashion design.
The core of the BARBARA I GONGINI brand DNA is centered on strength of individual and not on sex or sexual orientation, societal order or other normative pressures, but on playful imaginative tale of craftsmanship that breathes freedom of self-expression.
The design process is comprised of artistically responsible exercises with a particular focus on sustainability. The brand embraces Nordic high-end craftsmanship irreverently.
The construction process is aimed at crafting garments eloquently suitable for both men and women and wearers are encouraged to interact and close forms by selective personalization of the silhouettes through #multiways garments. Structural forms are challenged and experimental pattern-making shape a solemn backdrop for contemporary tailoring.

Gone Rustic specialises in eco printing and dyeing (upcycled and vintage fashion, handmade accessories and textile art) by artist and owner Rita Summers.
Gone Rustic Studio and Gallery opened in 2003 in a rented building. In 2004 Rita and Ian Summers purchased a disused historical industrial building in St. Marys, Tasmania, Australia. Ian (a highschool art teacher) did most of the work of transforming the dilapidated building into a studio and gallery in his spare time over the next 18 months.
In 2012 the building was repainted inside and out in two shades of grey, with white and red trims. In 2015, new vinyl banner signs were installed, designed in collaboration with son John Summers of Black Marketing + Creative - http://www.black.marketing.
This is where Rita makes, displays and sells her own work (as well as other people’s quality handmade items), offers classes, and hosts exhibitions of local artisans and touring art displays.

Hopeless + Cause Atelier
Women's social wear with a social conscious.
Rooted in a childhood dream and whispered to awaken the creativity…Hopeless + Cause Atelier was realized in 2015.
I’m a HOPELESS fanatic of fashion. I’m a HOPELESS believer that everything happens for a reason and you should use it to drive or inspire you. And, because I’m human, I feel HOPELESS at times so I give others hope to be who they are meant to be. Life is filled with CAUSE & effect. What if there was a fashion line that supported: livable wages, eco-friendly & social-economic practices, and gave back? Now wouldn’t that be a CAUSE to get behind…and just think of that effect. Hopeless + Cause Atelier creates bespoke fashion for woman who want to have an impact.
