BRING ME THE SUN
While it has been a fresh few months, the warmer seasons are here, and yes, ladies of the Darling Downs – we need to prepare.
It’s time to start collecting your cozzies, so instead of pulling the same out-of-the-back-of-your-drawer from last season, take note of these Aussie trailblazers who have earnt an honourable mention for their fashion design skills.
This Sydney label is the brainchild of sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann and has set the bar in Australian design.
Known for their swimwear, resort wear and ready-to-wear collections, with a signature of delicate prints, strong silhouettes and an effortless-yetsophisticated look, Zimmermann has won a loyal legion of fans.
Fun, bright and peppered with great prints, this is the perfect clothing and swimwear label to embrace for the warmer months.
Lisa Gorman began in Australia’s creative hub, Melbourne, in 1999 with a small boutique.
The philosophy of Gorman is also great, with a focus on ethical fashion and the recent addition of Gorman Organic.
Think vintage-tribal with a modern kick.
SPELL & THE GYPSY COLLECTIVE
This gorgeous clothing and swimwear label (with photo shoots to die for) started in Byron Bay by sister duo Isabella (whose childhood nickname was Spell) and Elizabeth. With swathes of prints, lace, tassels and embroidery, this label will steal the roving gypsy heart you didn’t know you had.
Stylish, sophisticated and sexy, this swimwear label prides itself on creating gorgeous silhouettes.
Sydney creator Jessika Allen uses stretch fabrics to complement the natural curves of the female form.
The styles, patterns and prints of this label offer truly glamorous, classic and modern options.
