Designer Jenna Cavarra centres her unique aesthetic between the city and the coast, based on places she has loved and lived - Byron Bay, London, New York, Thailand, South Gippsland and of course a touch of Melbourne.
Forever inspired from the arts, cultural diversity, travel, past fashion and music, these elements combined resonate through each and every unique piece to create a contemporary take on the bohemian style.
With signature vintage Afghan brass and coins, beautifully cut semi precious stones and carefully sourced luxurious velvets, CAVARRA is a luxe bohemian brand for women of all ages, sizes and backgrounds.

Starting out in the fashion industry, Jeannie found her creative outlet in jewellery label So Sublime. Focussing on a combination of resin and sterling silver, Jeannie has the ability to mix shapes and objects with a kaleidoscope of colours and endless design. Drawing inspiration from the 1920’s and 1930’s celluloid bakelite era, expect to see flowers, butterflies, cats, cicadas and many more little creatures from this time.
Versatility of use is a key element in the designs, as pieces can be worn as a brooch, neckpiece, hairpiece and perhaps even a belt buckle. All it needs is a little imagination by the wearer.
Come and see So Sublime and heaps more this February at The Rose St. Artists' Market.
In search of a cultural experience, a young traveller made his way to the Far East. One day, he found himself wandering into a quaint shoe store in the heart of New Delhi where he met Balram, the humble shopkeeper looking for the best shoes for standing all day. Balram passed on his secrets and when the traveller left the shop smelling of old leather and cigars, he felt as though he had found his purpose, and so began Rompa.
Rompa sources materials from across the globe to craft bespoke leather footwear. From Argentina to the northern regions of India, each shoe is inspired from the travellers’ journey.
Part of Rompa’s vision in essence of its’ begging’s is to not only provide quality footwear through humane and renewable resources, but to also give back to the communities in which the traveller wanders.
