The gorgeous, vivacious, delightful and talented designer and head of Nina & B, is a dear friend of mine so I’m very excited to be featuring her collection in The Pati0 Frock. I simply love Gold Coast based Nina’s zest for life and her entrepreneurial spirit, both of which are evident her inspired designs. I believe Nina & B have created the quintessential summer wardrobe, offering everything from rocking jewellery and stunning sandals to silky kimonos, stylish caftans and groovy bejewelled ponchos. I was fortunate enough to be with Nina and her team, including photographer extraordinaire, Thor Elias, in Byron Bay to shoot her collection at an amazing home in the hinterland, aptly named Margaritaville.
Nina & B. is the fruit of contemporary Australian flair and classic european elegance. Being based in Rome and foraying around the globe over the last decade, Nina & B.’s founder Nina has created a range to capture the essence of understated sophistication.
Combining only the finest fabrics for her unique styles, Nina has incorporated lessons learned whilst in Italy working for fashion labels such as Bvlgari. After years of ‘La Dolce Vita’, Nina has returned home to Australia to launch her fashion line, Nina & B.
