Fortuna and Maroun Kebede are sisters, friends, business partners and the founders and co-creators of The Classic Future Fashion House. They moved to Melbourne Australia, from Mek’ele Ethiopia right before they reached adolescence.
Fortuna comes from a performing background and Maroun has many skills related to dress making and adornments. Through these combined passions, through travelling around the world, through hearing many stories about people and their cultural experiences, they wanted to work out a way that they could objectively introduce the aesthetics from around the world, to Australia.
This idea of ‘Foreign’, was the starting point for their fashion label. With respect to not only our own culture, but to the far-reaching cultures of our world, we would like to introduce you to The Classic Future.
