For the launch of their Zodiac collection, Mara & Mine held an intimate cocktails and canapés celebration in Sydney at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on May 15th. Building their brand to emulate ‘off-duty’ style, the event was an ode to the phenomenal women who inspire them – namely the stellar inspiration that is Catherine McNeil.

Embracing the effortless chic that comes with style as an expression of personality and spirit, their cult Scorpion slide was inspired by Catherine’s back tattoo, and ignited a true inspiration for the collection.

Recognised for leading the way in luxury street chic, the event was held in the Track 8 Foyer space in Carriageworks , where guests were treated to a graffiti-esque live art moment celebrating the influence of the zodiac and bespoke Arktika cocktails.

Luxe yet minimal, the event was an extension of the brands effortless style – pairing comfort with a lust-worthy edge. VIP’s included Yan Yan Chan, Amanda Shadforth, Nadia Fairfax, Kate Waterhouse, Sylvia Jeffreys & Tahnee Atkinson.

Artisans have been inspired by beautiful and creative souls since the dawn of time, and Jasmine and Tamara are thrilled to be working with the girl who has been so inspirational to Mara & Mine.

After all, when creative hearts come together, true magic happens.
