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-yet-so­phis­ti­cated 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.


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.
