SYDNEY, Jul 22, 2009 / FW/ — “Never underestimate the power of a beautiful dress,” says Barbarella Vintage designer Hang Osment-Le. Based in New South Wales, Hang Osment-Le had been inspired by old Hollywood’s bohemian glamour and the works of design greats Ossie Clarke and Emilio Pucci.
The result – Barbarella Vintage frocks that exude classic femininity, effortless style and chic, sexy sophistication; a Barbarella Vintage dress can become an essential wardrobe staple – the flattering cuts and eye-catching prints complement modern female figures, and each piece is crafted from quality fabrics that can be can cared for easily.
Since 2006, head designer Hang Osment-Le and her creative team have studied and sourced unique prints from Australia and beyond, crafted collections of 70’s-style dresses for today’s multi-tasking women, and brought these to the stylish streets of Sydney from their Parisian-style boutique in Newtown.
Clean lines, classic cuts, and colorful prints; a Barbarella Vintage garment is much more than a dress…it’s the unique yet uncomplicated statement piece you’ve been searching your whole life for.’
Feminine dresses inspired by stand-out prints from the sixties and seventies have become the signature style of the label Barbarella Vintage. The exclusively designed prints are influenced by vintage archives of the great designers including Ossie Clarke and Emilio Pucci.
Says designer Hang Osment-Le, “I particularly love the 70s era, where the prints were always really bright and distinctive; when wearing a great dress was like wearing a work of art.”
Naturally, she uses bold, dynamic prints offset by the clean lines of the maxi dress design to reflect this unpretentious approach to style.
Osment-Le’s design philosophy focuses on creating unique and comfortable stylish dresses boasting flattering cuts, ranging from casual pieces to cocktail wear and formal, floor-length garments.
