There is a beautiful balance of soft tones, sherbet shades and subdued pastels - which blend seamlessly with florals, polka dots, pops of brights and eclectic prints.

You better get in quick, hearts are set to flutter and you don't want to miss out - shop online now or at select stores from the 27th of August.
5 Minutes with Whitney
We fell in love with Whitney when we first saw her grace our TV screens on 'The Hills' and 'The City'. Not only winning us over with her personality and nice girl attitude, we have since become smitten with just how talented she is as a designer.
Whitney instinctively knows the kind of fun, light hearted fashion we love best at Sportsgirl. She describes her aesthetic as Cali-casual-meets-NYC-edge, but for Australian style enthusiasts, her pieces are a perfect fit.
We caught up with Whitney at her Australian Fashion Week launch to find out about her fashion philosophy, style evolution, and get inside what she’s learned from life on film.

Sportsgirl: How have you been finding the transition back to life off-camera?
Whitney: I've absolutely loved it! It's so refreshing to not constantly have a filter on what I say, and also not be so concerned with how I look.
Sportsgirl: Can you share one of your most memorable teenage fashion experiences with us?
Whitney: Emulating Marilyn Monroe for a semi-formal dance. I wore a vintage white gathered dress, red lips, and a retro wavy hair do.
Sportsgirl: When do you think you really nailed ‘your’ style? How did you know?
Whitney: I still don't know that I've necessarily nailed my style. I feel that it is ever changing. I am always striving to not only reinvent myself but my design skill as well.

Presentation of the collection.
Sportsgirl: We want a quiet night this weekend, what movie should we watch?
Whitney: 'What to Expect When You're Expecting'. You'll see a brief cameo from yours truly!
Sportsgirl: Can you tell us some key things you’ve learned about friendships during 'The Hills', 'The City' and since?
Whitney: Be a patient listener. Only say what you would say to their face. Not everyone has to be your best friend -- you can have different friends for different reasons.
