The Austrailian-based brand Phoenix Keating has caught the attention of A-listers including Lady Gaga and Kimbra, and continues to push the limits of fashion with passion and flare, with his debut line in the U.S. market for Spring/ Summer 2014.
Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Keating always had an eye for the dramatic and from an early age aspired to be an actor. Yet, by the age of 17 when working on a high school project that involved the design of a two-piece outfit, Keating knew that fashion was his calling. Shortly after finishing school, Keating turned his entire focus to design and his first collection in Spring/Summer 2009, launched to rave reviews from local Australian press.
Infusing each piece with a touch of eccentricity, drama and creativity, one can never mistake a Phoenix Keating design, and his attention to expert tailoring shines through from season to season. Keating’s designs are always inspired by powerful, strong women with each collection accompanied by a story that he creates, and predominantly presents a fusion of retro and ultra-modern inspiration. The juxtaposition of the classic with the futuristic is a trademark of Keating, and each collection is created to be both progressive and nostalgic.
