Top 5 Australian Designers
I promised on my last post – Top 5 favorite Irish Designers – that I would post about my top 5 favorite Australian designers. This list was quite hard as these are designers that I have come across in my time in Australia but as I have only been here for 3 years, and living in rural areas, unlike my time in the city in Ireland, I haven’t gotten to see or hear about as many designers.
Shona Joy is an absolute favorite of mine. I love to see how she has tailored the dresses in her collection. Her style to me is what I thought was ‘typical’ in Australia before I moved here. I was basing this purely on watching Home and Away. Yes, I’m an idiot! but I was pleasantly surprised when I came across her work last year as her price point is surprisingly affordable!
Alex Perry is another favorite of mine! An aussie fashion icon, it would be hard to list my top 5 favorite Australian designers and not include his work! He has dressed everyone from Kimmy K to Jessica Hart. His work is amazing! He is the most high profile designer in my top 5.
I came across Zimmerman when I first arrived in Australia. I love the prints and feminine feel to the collections. Some of the prints remind me of Laura Ashley which is no bad thing!
I came across Don’t Do Pretty on DressCollective.com and fell in love with the fierce edgy styling. Leather is really hard to wear in the Australian sun but I love the leather look for the cooler months.
Aje. I LOVE – I’ve saved my favorite for last! 90’s meets feminine with a little bit of edge. What’s not to love?
I would love to discover more Aussie designers, if you have a fave, please do leave a comment and let me know!
