Humility Couture's designer, Jimmy L'Almont, certainly caused a massive stir back in May with his SS10 collection show - The Death of Fashion… Almost beautiful - at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week when he sent the grim reaper down the stage with head stones saying `RIP Alexander Mcqueen' and `Ksubi is dead'.
"After our controversial debut at RAFW, we received great feedback on our collection and will double our national stockists base and be expanding into London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Milan. We are also working on our online store which will be up and running by the time summer drops."
The Death of Fashion… Almost beautiful is influenced by overseas visits to the Karen people of Burma, who motivate and inspire's the designer:
"Their fight for peace and freedom are the reason we do what we do."

"We kept the collection dark but played with denim dyes and prints and included a androgynous silk peg pant which we found a lot of men have been receptive towards as a casual alternative to the skinny or slim denim."
"Aesthetically, we wanted to keep the collection simple, whilst at the same time retain the use of luxury fabrics. We accentuated and played with male silhouettes and strengthened the female reflection."
Great collection, get it now!
