Juli Grbac, winner of Project Runway Australia and designer of Virgin Australia’s uniforms, is the Creative Director behind a new limited edition fashion collection Grace on Mercerreleased this April.

Grace on Mercer is designed to provide contemporary wardrobe essentials for Australia’s modern career women. The idea was formed during her time in New York, designing women’s ready to wear, fashion forward uniform solutions for prominent international businesses. Juli’s lifestyle of constant travel and working tirelessly reinforced the necessity for women to have a variety of great pieces they can travel with; that can go from business class to boardroom, to a chic evening out at any time of the year. Her extensive experience in design, corporate uniforms and business has culminated in the development of Grace on Mercer. 

“I have been able to take the lessons from designing fashion, and uniforms, and as a result develop a contemporary and effortlessly elegant collection driven by attention to detail and a perfect fit, resulting in a strong and relevant collection for women world-wide,” explains Juli.

Juli was taught to sew at a young age by her mother, who made a career as a dressmaker. She started her fashion education at Gateway TAFE before joining local label Easton Pearson. Juli went on to perfect her skills at the renowned Central Saint Martin’s in London. Following her studies she worked as a design assistant with iconic British label Voyage, where she was making bespoke orders for the stars including Victoria Beckham.

Juli began her own label Grbac at 22, which was stocked in premium Australian retail boutiques and has a stand-alone store in Fortitude Valley.

“The woman I’m designing for knows immediately what will suit them and doesn’t want to waste time in dressing rooms, trying on an endless amount of clothing to find the right outfit. I am confident that Grace on Mercer will provide the perfect solution,” says Juli.

Grace on Mercer is a limited edition collection, defined by strong tailoring accented with luxurious drape, these elements provide perfect harmony in each outfit. Sleek silhouettes and high quality materials ensure the pieces will last for years to come.

The collection will range from $65 for a complete lined silk camisole, through to $890 for a versatile trench coat, making fashion and style accessible for all. Grace on Mercer is available at https://graceonmercer.com/
