as seen at Australian Fashion Week 2022

Done by Matea x Nicol & Ford

A collection of 21 one-off statement pairs handcrafted exclusively for the Nicol & Ford Le Pouffe runway debut at Australian Fashion Week 2022. 

Using Nicol & Fords brief, a collaborative process and a selection of vintage fabrics, trims and fittings ~ I designed and hand crafted a range of footwear to seamlessly complement their collection.

Nicol & Ford are an independent fashion label launched in 2017 based in Newtown, Sydney. Nicol & Ford’s Le Pouffe Collection explores the life of French-born Mexican multimillionaire Carlos de Beistegui with looks designed to bring eighteenth-century furnishings to life via a range of heavily embellished couture garments. Taking inspiration from physical furniture forms, the surrealist movement, and avant garde silhouettes of the early twentieth century, Le Pouffe is designed as a walking presentation of de Beistegui’s apartment. Focussed on re-writing history via a contemporary fashion lens, each Nicol & Ford collection reverses queer erasure, unearthing figures from the past to celebrate their creative ingenuity and leadership.
