The Couture Collective - Iconic Australian Designers of 2017
From the first Australian fashion designs that were adapted from Europe to fit our harsh climatic conditions, our home-grown fashion has been inspired and cultivated from our iconic land of sea and sand, and our rich cultural diversity.
Whether it’s couture dresses or high-quality readyto-wear, Australian designers are today presenting with the best in the business thanks to their talent, individuality, creativity and dedication to their craft.
We’ve had Australian designers show their collections at Fashion Weeks across Europe and the USA, holding their own amongst the highly esteemed luxury fashion houses.
On a national scale, our local designers have transformed the identity of Australian style, bringing a vast array of quality and creativity from designers of all different backgrounds who are influenced and inspired by their life in Australia.
Façon issue three featured iconic national designers, all of whom have changed the face of Australian fashion and are enjoying major success on an international scale. We also look at up-and-coming designers to watch, whose labels are destined for success.
Australia has a long history of iconic, influential fashion, and the talented contemporary designers currently making waves in the industry will ensure Australian fashion continues to invent and set new trends, proving to be a source of inspiration on the world’s runways.
