A wild splash of prints

During the hippie era of 1974, Nava and Felix Kingston took a backpacker holiday through India and fell in love with the beautiful printed, patchwork cotton and cheesecloth Indian dresses.

These dresses became the inspiration behind their own label, Black Plum. Fast track to modern day and their label is still going strong with their daughter, Natalie joining the creative team.

Their inspiration has also moved on from India with fabrics and ideas being sourced from France to Italy, as well as European fashion catwalks and the creative minds of their designers.

The Black Plum design team create all their own prints and embroideries on top of the gorgeous textures of fabrics and trims they source elsewhere. They create collections to work as themes for styled outfits specifically with the Black Plum customer in mind.

And the name? Well it is of course from the delicious fruit. The designers were inspired after eating a Black Plum during the summertime.

Black Plum will showcase their new collection at Fashion Exposed from 10-12 March at the Sydney Exhibition Centre, after receiving positive feedback from their first appearance at Fashion Exposed Melbourne last year.

Expect a wild splash of prints and fantastic new designs on stand 2828.

The Black Plum and Ice Express brands have been growing from strength to strength even in these tough times. These affordable ranges provide cutting edge and commercial, contemporary styling using top quality natural fabrics.

There is so much variety within the ranges as well as sizes available from 10 to XXL.

Don’t miss them!
