Pereira Fitzgerald and Kat Wu have something in common: newness (both first timers at #MBFWA) and that DNA. Founded by Bella Pereira and Gemma Fitzgerald, the former focusses on sustainable and local manufacturing that celebrate femininity. Also, new to the runway, Kat Wu is making waves, and aside from having a face that may or may not have been shaped directly by the hands of an angel, she embodies everything the Pereira Fitzgerald brand does too: feminine, strong, considered.
