Why Australian label Acler is becoming our cult favourite!

If you’re willing to enter the game of serious fashion, look beyond the peripheral vision of the common brand clutter that comes to mind when planning to shop. We’re all guilty of sticking to certain brands seeking security. This is why it is all the more necessary to expand horizons and experiment, exploring fashion from all corners of the world that are offering something new and refreshing. Enter Acler, the ready-to-wear label that is perhaps Australia’s best-kept secret, and we’re just finding out why!

Runway meets the Everyday

The brand’s expertise lies in merging runway trends for the streets and more subtler occasions than the red carpet. You can see your favourite looks off the catwalk translated into wearable pieces without being overly ostentatious. The best facet of the brand is that while the quality of design and material remains top-notch, the price points are well below your average luxury brand. Acler’s signature style can be defined as a celebration of femininity where drapes and soft cuts ebb and flow over the body, but in a way that incorporates modernity and all the trends

Australian Designer Duo

Acler is the brainchild of Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto, who formerly ran sister labels Cameo and Finders Keepers. While both brands were successful in their own right, the new project was a natural progression of their acquired skills. It was a step ahead as these designer minds came together to start something entirely new and refreshing. Where the former labels were budget brands, the designers found an opportunity to elevate their designs and find a niche between luxury and high fashion.

Dressed to Impress

Looking for a killer outfit to wear on your girls night out? Or just an elevated date night, or perhaps the perfect birthday outfit that keeps you looking snatched and shining amidst the big crowd, that is what Acler gives to its wearers. The design process itself takes six months, where sketches on paper manifest into graphics and then drapes, moulded, twisted and shaped till it reaches a level of finesse. Gorgeous fabrics like soft-washed silks and acetate blend fabrics are also carefully chosen from international markets to give shape to the designers’ vision.

 The Cult-Following  

Acler has been the go-to label for a long line of celebrity clientele like actresses Halle Berry and Vanessa Hudgens , models Jasmine Tookes and Coco Rocha, and most importantly has been validated by Beyoncé herself. But it goes further, the brand has also found a place in the wardrobes of fashion’s front row influencers like Chriselle Lim and Zina Charkoplia. It serves to show that the label believes in providing the right investment piece for anybody to make a statement in.
