White Label Noba’s SS17/18 collection is … Paradiso !!

Written by Sally


The stunning new Summer collection from Australian label White Label Noba is aptly named Paradiso – a fabulous flurry of sequins, colour, tassels, ruffles and printed silks  – bold and joyful but also fun, utterly wearable and totally statement-making.

White Label Noba or WLN as it is known locally in Queensland, is a luxury resortwear brand led by founder and designer Tracey Watkins and is renowned for making women of all ages, shapes and sizes feel glamourous and beautiful. WLN has the ability to transform a simple backyard bbq outfit into an outfit worthy of a clifftop soirée overlooking Positano. Bella !

WLN events are always memorable and playful just like Tracey’s pieces … a mystery meeting point and a leisurely walk along the Brisbane River, serenaded by accordian player & Italian crooner to a row of  immaculately dressed Italian waiters, all with trays laden with San Pellegrino sparkling bambino bottles and Prosecco.

Where to next ..?

I was so sure I was getting on a boat – you will see I was in nautical mode with captain’s hat & sensible trainers !!

Beautiful canapés circulated by Caxton Street Catering with sweet treats by Marche de Macaron inside a twinkling marquée, styled with lanterns and cute gelato-toned vespa scooters, creating the perfect al fresco vibe that transported guests to the Italian riviera.

As well as the luxurious resort and partywear on show at  WLN fashion events, the diverse runway models always look like they are having fun – and WLN always creates a multi-generational party atmosphere.

WLN fashion launches never fail to have some of my favourite folk in Brisbane on the guest list – including gorgeous style icon Mary Dickinson (part of the #SunSoakedSisterhood)  and her dapper husband Trevor (pictured) and  great gals like Kath Rose, Bianca Dye, Margaux Parker, Di Cant, Dale Olsson and the Sheppard sisters ensure that time flies while we are chatting, laughing, taking boomerangs and having fun under the stars.

Is it any wonder my favourites from the runway included off the shoulder, statement bows, stars, sequins, tiers, ruffles and statement colour combos ?

il mio paradiso !!
