GYRE has us diving into the Ocean at AAFW.

Gyre debuted at AfterPay Australian Fashion Week with its 2022 Oceania collection. The collection is simply classically stylish and easy to wear for sunset moments and poolside leisure that can be dressed up or down and incorporates separates that are easily mixed and matched.

Nothing screams resort-like crisp white and sexy sophisticated one-shoulder designs.

All black and all white two-piece ensembles were sleek and elegant, perfect for those wanting the upgraded casual look.

Beautiful strapless breezy dresses will fit most dress codes and are easily elevated with heels and accessories.

This collection has enough edge with skin-bearing strapless dresses, versatile separates, and sexy swimwear, which is made from Italian ‘Econyl’ – regenerated Ocean waste.

“We are increasingly aware of the impact that traditional fashion industry practices have on the environment, but we believe that fashion and a healthy planet can co-exist”, says Gyre founder and Creative Director Elena Ballantyne. 

“It is our responsibility, as an emerging brand, to be part of a more sustainable present, and future in turn by being a lighthouse in the ocean of fast fashion.”

Styled with beautiful hats by Lorna Murray, an ethical and sustainable Australian brand, where effortless glamour meets coastal bohemian, and thoughtfully composed elegant jewellery by local Newcastle-NSW Kate & Kole.
