Tara Whalley

Tara Whalley established her self-titled fashion brand in 2015, after returning to Australia after a year of working with war-affected Mayan weavers. It was this time in Guatemala that formed Tara’s painting practice- translating experience into artwork for fabric print and a clear direction for the basis of her fashion signature style. Her collections are made in Melbourne with natural fibres, digitally printed to reduce environmental impact, utilise offcuts to minimise waste, are available in sizes XS to 10XLovely and feature Tara’s hand painted artwork.
Tara’s work has been featured in Paris Fashion Week (2021), New York Fashion Week (2020), Vogue, The Age, The Design Files, In Style, Lamington Drive and has won the Frankie Magazine 2019 Fashion Designer Award.
