Growing up in Australia, Bianca’s first success came on the motocross track. A national champion, fashion still came calling and Bianca originally set out to design a range of motocross clothing.
Graduating in 2011, she scored a job as a design assistant for the Kardashian Kollection. Her elite eye for womenswear saw her promoted to Head Designer after one year, moving to LA to work alongside the Kardashian sisters.
During her time in LA, Bianca also designed for the likes of supermodel Cindy Crawford and rock heiress Kelly Osbourne, this leading her to garner experience & relocating to London.
Once in London, Bianca decided to launch her namesake label Whyte Studio TM in June 2017, since then the label has been seen on celebrities and models alike, including Khloe Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin, and members of girl group Little Mix.
Façon Australia caught up with Bianca Whyte for five minutes to talk Whyte Studio, desiring success and future aspirations.
