AUSTRALIA HAS GREAT TASTE

AUSTRALIA HAS GREAT TASTE

The Great Down Under.

The Land of Aus.

More recently affectionately referred to as … #Straya

Australia’s style, like other parts of the world, has evolved rapidly over the past century.

Gone is the parade of full length cotton skirts and prim cotton shirts paired back with an akubra.  

2016 sees us replicating not our English heritage but creating an aesthetic that is refreshingly new.

With gracious thanks to affordable airfares and the internet Australian style leaders are receiving accolades the world over.  We’re no longer the cut off, long lost sister but a true up and coming style leader.

‘Aussie’ names such as Camilla, Zimmerman, Sass+Bide, Collette Dinighan, Romance Was Born, Easton Pearson, Ksubi, Triangl are proudly boasted on the international fashion circuit and screen. 

Like our heritage and our landscape, recent Australian style is overwhelmingly eclectic, bold, colourful, flowing and most certainly evolving.

It makes me curious  that so many iconic Australian labels create their collections off shore.

I wonder … is this purely a skills based choice?  Or cost?  Perhaps both?

Maybe it's just because it's what's done of late?

But like our style, our past doesn't have to equal the future.

With awareness growing around slow fashion, an increasing amount of Aussie designers are now choosing to return to local construction and the creation of hand made or hand finished garments.

#exciting & #important

A stylish one can’t help but watch with anticipation, for the next round of Australian taste to evolve.
