Bianca Spender

Fashion Designer

Bianca Spender is a designer at the forefront of Australian fashion. With a steadfast dedication to creating lasting and elegant pieces for the modern woman, she makes ethically accredited and sustainable clothing for the conscious consumer. The Bianca Spender design identity is grounded in Liberated Tailoring, where feminine movement is underpinned by masculine cuts. Working with elegant drape and precise structures, Bianca Spender designs celebrate the artistic spirit and do so with quiet refinement. They are infused by this creativity, taking note from music, art, nature and technology. These are clothes made to be worn, to elongate the form and elevate the silhouette, using daring colour palettes and sophisticated construction. “The design and pattern making process is a form of modern poetry for me. Clothes that have rhythm, that combine understatement and elevation, precision and imagination.”

Bianca’s background includes studying both Commerce and Fashion. She has extensive experience in European fashion, having worked as a stagiaire in Milan and spending three years with Martine Sitbon in Paris as a junior designer. In 2004, she returned to Australia to design under Carla Zampatti and launched her own eponymous line in 2009. She has shown at Australian Fashion Week since 2010. Bianca Spender continues to be an iconic and revered Australian brand, with a commitment to a strong and sustainable future for Australian fashion.
