FMO X Claire Ritchie

Our AW2020 collection features the gorgeous Gather print, created by Australian artist and maker Claire Ritchie.

Colour is Claire’s language and she uses it in a visually striking, feel good way. Claire designs and makes a selection of artwork, accessories, clothing and homewares made in small batches, brought to life through colourful and bold prints.

Claire studied Clothing Production and Fashion & Textile Design in her hometown Perth, before moving to the east coast in 2013 with her sewing machine and a string of vibrant fabrics in tow. In 2018, she packed up her beloved Melbourne studio and headed north for a sunny change of pace.

Several years of sewing to her own creative beat and always staying true to her values of treating our beautiful environment with care underpins what Claire Ritchie is all about. Claire challenges consumers to shop more carefully, to buy high quality items and treat them with care. She hopes her thoughtfully designed items will inspire people to shop with the same thoughtfulness.

This is Frock Me Out's second collaboraion with Claire - it's a perfect match!. Our SS2019 range also featured her Wanderer print.
