RTÉ's The Model Scouts, RTÉ Two, December 21, 9pm - 12 girls, 8 weeks, 1 winner
Sara Phillips, Designer
Sara Phillips uses her signature youthful wit to draw on an almost endless tapestry of childhood memories to create collections with a modern, yet slightly off kilter take on femininity.
Sara studied fashion design under Nicholas Huxley at the prestigious East Sydney Design Studio. Following graduation, Sara worked for established design houses Jayson Brunsdon and Saba before launching her own eponymous brand in 2007.
The common threads that draw each of Sara's collections together are print, soft tailoring and a penchant for luxurious fabrications, including the use of soft suede's, unique feathers and hand drawn prints.
Sara balances classic tailoring with fluid shapes with an individual creativity and an unsurpassed passion for attention to detail. Bringing all of these elements together Sara Phillips creates a new romanticism for the modern, free spirited woman.
Sara Phillips launched her 'High Noon' range at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. Jessica, Tabea and Aishling walked in this show. For more information on Camilla, check out her webstie.
Camilla Franks, Designer
Camilla Franks is a former theatre actress from Australia who designs flamboyant kaftans for beach and resort fashion. This year she launched her 'Babylon' spring summer collection, drawing inspiration from far off lands. She collaborated with 20th Century Fox to unveil a secret Avatar theme. The collection transcends resort wear and beach style with her signature free-flowing kaftans and glamorous dresses.
Celebrities who are fans of her range are Lily Allen, Kin Cattrall, Elle Macpherson, Sharon Stone, Shakira, Fergie, Beyonce, Gwen Stefani and Nicole Kidman.
Ellen and Tabea walked in Camilla's show at the Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. Camilla was impressed with the girls and said "You know what got me, the accent, they're beautiful girls. Big models come into the showroom and I was saying next, next and then I loved them. Sometimes, I don't need the names on the catwalk because the garments speak for themselves. You know they are great canvasses for a great product. You know they were great girls to work with".
