What to Expect From Tome’s NYFW Show

Australian label Tome has made a quick trajectory to become one of our most important fashion labels. The label only launched in 2011 but has quickly formed a solid fan base—Kate Bosworth and Amal Clooney have both been spotted in Tome’s designs, and it’s stocked in the world’s most luxurious boutiques (think Harvey Nichols, Lane Crawford, Net-a-Porter, and locally in David Jones).

What makes Tome so special? This label has staying power. If you’ve ever owned a piece from Tome, you’ll know there’s a strong focus on cut, fit, and premium fabrication—the true markings of a label creating the foundations to last the distance.

Ahead of Tome’s New York Fashion Week show on Sunday, designers Ramon Martin and Ryan Lobo shared with Who What Wear Australia what to expect from the A/W 16-17 presentation.
