ABOUT NARDIA

Caravan + Co Founder, Nardia Robertson, was taught to sew by her mother and grandmother.  This artisanal approach to craftsmanship is reflected in her designs and forms one of three major facets of the brand’s transcendental and luxurious aesthetic.

To complement the natural acquisition of her skills in childhood, Nardia went on to study fashion at the Melbourne School of Fashion (now RMIT) where her passion and persuasion were accompanied by a knowledge of the production and marketing assets required to succeed in the fashion design landscape.

Finally, Nardia came full circle when she began work within the high-end bridalwear industry, beginning a long time affair with embellishment, intricate handworked artistry and fine fabrics.

 

Today, Caravan + Co is the realisation of the unity of these three facets to Nardia’s background. Each juxtaposing element complimenting the other ensuring Nardia’s unique ability to perfect and acknowledge the entire process of designing and producing elevated fashion is end to end and cohesively seamless.
