I got my first glimpse of local Canberra label Beau & Arrow at CIT’s Bachelor of Design (Fashion) graduation show in 2008. The brainchild of designer Tegan Kennedy, Beau & Arrow‘s philosophy is simple: unite the elegance of traditional tailoring with contemporary styling. Tegan’s talent recently won her a spot at this year’s Fashion Forward Festival which was organised by the Fashion Foundation of Australia (FFA) and opened in Sydney at the close of Rosemount Australian Fashion Week (RAFW). At the festival, Tegan was able to showcase the Beau & Arrow label to media, buyers, investors and the broader public. Scope some pics from her debut collection below and check out the Beau & Arrow Facebook fan page.
