Mardi has a beautiful voice, I'm highlighting this because I had the opportunity to spoke over the phone about her career as a designer.
Originally from Tasmania, she started early on working on the craft of becoming a shoe maker.
In 2014 She completed a Masters degree in Footwear and Accessories from Italy.
Her origins are translated into her designs as well as her recurrent dreams, both elements are a key part of her creative process.
Go on take a look at her web and social medias spaces, it is a very pleasent visual experience Mardi Price FACEBOOK INSTAGRAM
There is a certain je n'ais se quoi to what she does, is attractive and sexy as well as delicate and experimental, as I perceive it.
Looking at the designs you can immerse in her own personal world, a details I find appealing and very interesting.
Symbols that tell stories, using mostly aborigine imaginary, creating a unique aesthetic that evolves with every new collection but keeping a tone and a certain wink for timeless items.
From harnesses to turbans and leg spatsies (a beautiful and incredible delicate version of the type of classic footwear accessory for outdoor that covers the instep and the ankle), you can find pieces that are delicate and REBELLIOUS at the same time. Actually I have found myself creating a full fledged outfit only with Mardi's creations...
I found very interesting as well, from the business perspective that she is currently working solely in direct sales (no stockists here) which can be really good as a customer you can engage directly with the designer, that is a really BIG plus in my checklist.
Now she is based in East London, where she has her studio.www.mardiprice.com
