About the designer
The owner and designer of Janin Australia is Aneta Rycombel who moved from Poland to Australia, settling in the beautiful Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.
My formal fashion study has been at the Academy of Design where I graduated with a diploma in 2008. Nominations for various fashion competitions encouraged me to launch my own label in 2010. I am visual person and enjoy the whole creative design process, sourcing fabrics, pattern making and sewing garments.
About Janin Australia
Janin Australia blends my European styling with a relaxed Gold Coast vibe to create comfortable and easy- to-wear pieces. My style journey evolved from tailored, muted tones and formal looks which were more suited to Melbourne and northern Europe, to now a more relaxed vibrant style.
I’ve drawn on my experience as a patternmaker to focus on the cut of fabric that flatters a women’s shape. Driven by the demand for stylish, comfortable garments. I’ve adapted my European aesthetic to embrace all elements of the Australian culture and climate. In this hot summer, Janin Australia styles keep you cool. I’ve listened to customers and learnt what they like through my retail work with Gold Coast boutiques.
My evolving designs are a fusion of functionality and effortless chic.
I feel fashion can be approachable! I enjoy working collaboratively with photographers, models and
make- up to create looks that customers respond to.
When designing my clothes my inspiration for Janin Australia
I am a visual person. I see inspiration everywhere for colour palettes and graphic prints to create feminine silhouettes. I seek inspiration from the Australian lifestyle, by natural beauty, our world heritage hinterland of forests and outdoors.
I start first with the fabric. I think that fabric is the most important part of designing a dress. A lot of my time is spent sourcing unique colourful fabrics and prints. In the near future I will be creating digital prints of my own designs.
Designing the dress is all about the draping and the cut. Sensual shaping is all about flattering a woman’s body. I work mostly with jersey knit which is ideal for draping a women’s body.
Most of my pieces are dresses that can be worn as either short or long. Styles can come in blouse lengths also.
Women want comfort. Clothes need to feel comfortable as soon you put them on. My styles are both alluring and sensual, highlighting a womanly shape by draping what they want to flatter. The cut and design of the dresses suit a wide range of body shapes and age groups.
I only create a few pieces of each design, so Janin Australia is not mass produced and my pieces are unique.
Janin Australia women’s wear collection, focuses on prints and solid colour pieces that let your accessories stand out. Janin Australia fashion items will be your clothing staple, so accessorising with jewellery and shoes, your outfit can go from day-to-night.
