So as promised here is my chat with the super talented print master Benjamin Ringuet from the label RINGUET. I was lucky enough to wear one of his pieces to fashion week last week, nothing better than wearing a strong print with plain basics. I was interested in learning more about what inspires him to design all his raw artistic creations.
Your label is young but it is definitely making a huge mark, How did you start out in the fashion industry? Did you have a breakthrough moment? I studied fashion design and business at MSIT. After finishing I was selected into a mentoring program at QUT. My breakthrough moment would of been when I gained representation with Sticks and Stones Agency.
Your designs are so captivating with your amazing artistic creations on each garment, where do you draw your inspiration from? Emotion, illusions and calulatons fascinate me. I draw inspiration from experimenting with my current surroundings. Usually I design in quite unexpected places. Normally a person, dream or experience will trigger inspiration for a collection.
Favourite place or city in the world? Mt Cotton, Redland Bay.
Whats next for Ringuet? At the moment everyday is a new experience. I wish to offer the brand Ringuet to a larger audience. It is my goal one day to take the label international.
Where can my readers buy your amazing label? Ringuet can be purchased within selective boutiques though out Australia.
Below are my favourite pics from the current AW13 collection. All of these pieces are available to purchase online.
