Spend 5: Georgia Alice

When it comes to breakout success stories, they don’t come much sweeter than Georgia Alice, the most recent recipient of the ELLE Emerging Designer of the Year Award. The directional cult label has been on TWAINs radar since it’s inception and it’s easy to see why. A label providing the right blend of unique and wearable designs which are instantly recognisable. Not a small feat for a brand still very much in its infancy. Already dominating the pages of coveted magazines from ELLE to Vogue and gaining international acclaim, TWAIN simply had to have Georgia Alice join our brand mix. So while we eagerly await the first drop we decided to spend 5 with the face behind those lust worthy designs, Georgia Alice Currie.
