Bec & Bridge Meow Meow // BTS at Fashion Week Australia

Bec & Bridge kept it sassy at this year's MBFWA17 with their Meow Meow collection. From frill detailing to sexy shirting to their classic take on the party dress, this collection purrrred. 

Handsome waiters greeted guests with Meow Meow branded Aperol Spritz upon arrival, and while the fashion crowd got just a little tipsy, we snuck backstage to talk with the girls, Becky Cooper and Bridget Yorston, about their most recent collection.

Inspiration behind the collection? 

We began by exploring the work of Matisse, and were drawn to his use of colour, innovative use of light and layering. From here we were inspired to work with playful combinations of colours and interesting textures. The collection embodies the Bec & Bridge girl who, oozes that cool girl French attitude and sense of confidence.

Talk us through your design process. 

We draw inspiration from all sorts of things and places. We are inspired by travel, architecture, music and art. Normally one of us, or the girls in the design team, are particularly inspired by something and this provides a starting point. Things tend to naturally evolve from there.

What’s something new in this collection that Bec & Bridge hasn’t done before? 

The Bec & Bridge woman is alluring, cheeky and confident she has a sense youthfulness and isn’t afraid to break the rules and have fun. This collection she is embracing bold colour, dramatic ruffles and sculptural detailing along with some unexpected leather styles.

What advice would you give yourself if you started in fashion all over again?

Try not to compare yourself to others or to be something you’re not. Focus on who you are as a brand and creating your own brand identity.
