You might think to look at their otherworldly clothes that Dyspnea's designers locked holographic horns on a pink beach in another universe. Close. They emerged from a growing collective of creatives in Perth, Western Australia, and design for bold girls and the occasional boy as an outlet for their neon dreams.
Rach and Jam bonded over heartaches and terrible music at TAFE 4 years ago. They have been BFF's ever since. One thing led to another and they started designing one-off party pieces for themselves. Their clothes captured the imaginations of friends and hot strangers.
As of early 2015, they’ve shown their first collection, Reptilia at Telstra Perth Fashion Festival 2013, their second, Paralysis at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia 2014 and Dyslexicola during Paris Fashion Week 2014 at Jonas Fernando Pires Showroom. Their Dyslexicola look book was shot on location in Paris by Tom De Peyret and modelled by Garance Rochoux-Moreau (in between bookings by Rick Owens and Adidas, if you please).
Dyspnea showcased at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Sydney 2015. Their first standalone runway show, Dyslexicola S/S 15-16. The show was an unforgettable apocalypse of fluff, glitter, splashes of gold, ghetto beats and fairy models.
Somehow, in between all this, fuelled by candy and the little rainbow slicks you see on gasoline puddles, the duo are whipping up fluffy confections for thirsty social media movers, shakers and tastemakers. The quintessential Dyspet is the lovechild of Rihanna and Noel Fielding, Beyonce and Russell Brand. In short, anyone who doesn't give a damn what you think.
