Adine is the founder & creative director and face behind the label ADINE UNDONE.
New Zealand born & Australian raised, Adine is an ex-model who from the 90’s lived and worked between Paris, Milan & Los Angeles finally settling down in Venice circa 2010 where she put modelling aside to begin her journey in fashion design, learning the very basics of pattern making and sewing at an Italian Fashion School.
Passionately in love with designing funky tees she opened a small atelier and started making her very first pieces that were picked up by an Italian showroom in Milan who introduced Adine and her tees directly to the European market via her first official trade show in Paris at Pret-a-Porter where her small collection was a great success kick starting off her career path in street fashion.
A subscriber of ‘UNDONE IS SEXY‘ Adine who now works and lives in Bali, brings a distinct style and sensibility to all the pieces she currently creates with her locally selected Balinese artisans skilled in handiwork & dyeing, processes she loves getting fully immersed in to achieve her label’s distinct raw authenticity creating in the moment instead of simply following trends. Her work sustains a micro-economy of the Island’s local people whom she works alongside with in and ethical fashion to ensure they are well compensated and financially and respected culturally … a spirited team that prides itself on delivery quality made non-mass produced & pre-softened pieces to it’s international customer base.
Adine’s pieces imbue an ageless quality, with each piece feeling fashionable yet never fleeting … edgy yet comfortable.
Our pieces are a Labour of Love. We hope you love them as much as we love making them for you!
