ONE FELL SWOOP
Co-designed by Nina Ergic and Dan Romanin, Australian womenswear label, One Fell Swoop is lauded for their precision drapery and proficient tailoring. In 2015, the West Australian-based brand will celebrate its 10th anniversary. Having met while studying at the prestigious West Australian School of Art and Design, where both students would be the first in and the last to leave, they quickly discovered that not only did they share a similar European lineage, but possessed a congruent design aesthetic. And when it came time to present their final year collection, they did so together, thus beginning their venture. In February 2005 they made their debut as One Fell Swoop, a moniker that was inspired by a critical scene from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which resonated strongly with the designers. The inaugural 15-piece collection earned One Fell Swoop both critical and commercial success. Soon after they present a second collection at the A/W Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in June of 2005. The subsequent exposure secured new stockists on both the east and west coast of Australia.
