A former seamstress for Alexander McQueen, Tina Kalivas launched her own label of ultra-modern fashion over 10 years ago. The collections on her site are each juxtaposed with the inspiration behind the series, which is oddly fascinating to see (think: Rubik’s cubes, children’s books and video games!). But here’s why I love Tina Kalivas: in a fashion show with Mark Vassallo, a model had burned her face with acne cream, so the pair wrapped her face entirely with tape and sent her down the runway anyway! Three cheers for ingenuity.

p.s. Tina’s home is eclectically fantastic!
