We Are Kindred are an Australian label, founded by sisters Lizzie and Georgie Renkert who recently showed their 2019 resort collection Nouveau Fleur at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
Since their 2013 debut, We Are Kindred has become synonymous with effortless modern luxury, with a touch of bohemian chic. Fluid, feminine silhouettes and bespoke floral prints elevate this ultra-feminine collection.
For Nouveau Fleur, We Are Kindred were drawn to the Art Nouveau period, which was inspired by nature and florals.
Makeup director Molly Warkentin for Adderton created flawless dewy looks for the runway, with fresh glossy faces, rosy cheeks, and subtly tinted lips.
Molly said “we’re using Adderton makeup which is a mineral-based makeup brand. It’s mainly all about the models being comfortable in their own skin and just having a bit of fun with it, playing with textures and highlights.”
The collection was flowing and feminine with chic garden party notes, helped in part by the gorgeous floral path the models walked down. A mirrored runway helped to direct more light to the models dewy faces.
“We always say our Kindred girl embodies “sexy pretty,” and this is how we want our models to feel and be portrayed in the show. The show is feminine and fun, and a little smile on the runway is necessary! Fashion really shouldn’t be taken too seriously!” – Lizzie and Georgie Renkert
