Dries

May 12th, 2017

 

Screening at this year’s Sydney Film Festival is an intimate portrait of Dries Van Noten as seen through the lens of documentary filmmaker, Reiner Holzemer.

In a world of trends and globalisation, Dries has retained his independence working with his long-term partner in life and business, Patrick Vangheluwe, for almost 30 years. Notoriously private, Dries opened his elegant home to director Holzemer’s camera. The film also takes in extravagant fashion shows, visits to his dedicated embroiderers and the studio where embellished silks and fabrics of every hue are displayed. Dries’s creative process and distinctive approach to fabrics and prints is lovingly detailed in this intimate documentary.

For ticketing information and session times, check the Sydney Film Festival site.

Kowtow: From Seed to Garment Film

May 9th, 2017

The origins of the word kowtow comes from China. Here the act of kowtowing is considered the highest form of reverence where one kneels and bows so low, their head touches the ground. A fitting name for a clothing line whose aim is to respect not only the earth their organic cotton comes from, but each of the hands that touch its garments.

Kowtow’s origins began in Wellington, where designer and founder Gosia Piatek grew up after fleeing Poland with her parents at the age of five. Despite having no background in fashion, after graduating from University, Piatek was in search to do something meaningful. When a friend suggested founding a Fair Trade organic cotton business, she took the idea and ran with it.

Piatek and her team work solely with organic cotton to create apparel from the seed to the garment. The transparency of this journey allows their customer insight into the origins of their clothing item. To do this they work exclusively with a farm and factory in Calcutta, where fair wages are a must and ethical work standards and balanced hours for their employees means working a season ahead of most other labels.

The quality of Kowtow’s fabrics and their eye for details – each button and trim is sourced and produced ethically, both environmentally and socially – has garnered Kowtow a cult following of women around of the globe. The label now has retailers in New York, London, Paris, Copenhagen and Tokyo and is celebrating ten years in the business.

Poepke is proud to have this considered label adorn their hangers.

Jordan Askill

December 20th, 2016

4c41fe22-9815-4dda-acac-e3369ae732fa

You seem to be a man of many projects, with numerous working relationships and collaborations to your name – including Dior Homme, Alexander McQueen, Georg Jensen, Swarovski and TopShop, as well as costume design for Sydney Dance Company. Which, of all these relationships, has had a particularly significant effect on your jewellery work?

It has been a great experience being involved in these projects.
I feel that the projects i was involved in at the beginning of my career, such as interning at Alexander Mcqueen and working at Dior Homme, made the biggest stamp on my creative process and aesthetic. Georg Jensen was a beautiful experience, as i really felt a pure collaboration took place connecting both our design processes.

Amongst your numerous collaborators are your own brothers, Daniel and Lorin Askill. Tell us a little bit about one of your favourite projects that you’ve all worked on together.

A really beautiful project the three of us worked on several years back was with designer and artist Michelle Jank for her runway show Suspended Disbelief. We created a projection of a larger than life-size woman, immersed in cascading water. This image reflected the mood of the show.

There’s a distinct conceptual and sculptural bent to your jewellery. Do you have a previous background in sculpture?

My work is based on the idea of connecting to something that is precious, and being able to carry it with you; in a sense immortalising it. I studied and worked in fashion. When i was living in Paris and exposed to the history and architecture there, a greater connection with a sculptural aesthetic became prevalent.

In fact, you’ve created sculptures which accompany your jewellery collections. Is that right?

Yes that is correct. I’ve created sculptures to accompany my Jewellery pieces. They have told a story. I see my work as a novel, and the sculpture helps bring together each chapter.

Partly as a result of these sculptures, you were invited to exhibit at the Museum of London in 2014. What was that experience like?

Yes that is right. This was amazing. The Museum is a real part of London history and feels so rich with it. It was a real honour to be part of it, especially as at the same time, there was an exhibition of The Cheapside Hoarde. This was a collection of jewellery from the 16/17th centuries, found on an excavation site in 1912.

What can we expect to see from you in store at Poepke?

It is great to see all the pieces for Poepke come together, as it feels like a past and present display of some of my work up to date. We have some pieces availible in 18K, 10K AND silver; some pieces from my latest collection “THE RACE “, pieces that have just been released; some pieces that are pure one offs, and some Jordan Askill classics, also featuring the JORDY heart rings. This is exciting as it’s the first time my jewellery has been available in Australia in more than two years.
