STORY

Founder image

Bonita Collective brings joy to the wearer.

With flamboyant prints, unapologetic use of colour, luxurious fabrication, feminine shapes and the twinkling of embellishment, the splendour of Bonita Collective is distinct and recognisable.

Born in Australia, we radiate sunshine, glamour and a down to earth attitude. We can change a tyre while dressed fully in sequins. 

We are a trans-seasonal brand and our ways of working ensure every piece is made with utmost craftsmanship, thought and creativity. Our commitment to bringing joy is not limited to product design, it is the fabric of our business. Although still emerging, we throw ourselves behind causes we love and plant trees for every order placed. For us, good business is as important as a good product.

More than anything, our aspiration is that Bonita Collective pieces are considered keepsakes. The ultimate compliment; and the future proofing of our world.

Bonita Collective is the creative partnership of Kristian Williams and Stephanie Rooke.

Joining forces in 2018, they have successfully grown the business into a label encompassing fashion and the home. Kristian’s background in art and Stephanie’s in business rounds out their partnership, however with a shared love of more is more and all colours of the rainbow, they are a close working team who collaborate across all dimensions of the brand.

Kristian is a dab hand with a paintbrush and cut his teeth working in luxury retail. He is inspired by art, nature, architecture and the odd royal documentary.

Although Australian by birth and heart, Stephanie has strong links with the UK & US spending a good portion of her life living in both.  With an abundance of entrepreneurial spirit, she is a Mum to four young children and is inspired by adventure, showgirls, country music and history.

Together they are a dynamic duo, who delight in finding the ridiculous, celebrating individualism and creating joy.

JOY

Bonita Collective is intrinsically linked to joy; the joy in wearing it, the joy it brings to a room and the joy in knowing it is a brand with a responsible heart. 

COLOUR

A celebration of colour always - be it from it’s boldest and brightest, down to its simplest and purest. The strong belief that colour evokes a happy mind and a happy spirit.

SPLENDOUR

The splendour of Bonita Collective is distinct through the twinkling of embellishment, unapologetic use of colour, luxurious fabrication, flamboyant print and beautifully feminine detail.
