Where are fashion girls to go when they are sick of everything in their wardrobes in addition to all of their go-to shopping destinations? Down under, to the land of the Aussies of course. Australia is a country we often associate with sun, fun, and everything the two entail, but it is also emerging as a key fashion destination outside of London, Paris, Milan and New York. So much so that you might end up ditching all your favourite go-to retailers once you read up on what you can buy from this distant continent.
To preface this before you read any further, the number of extremely stylish Aussie brands seemed endless, making choosing the ones to showcase here today particularly difficult, but since we feel like we know you well enough by now, the brands ahead are ones we think you'll draw a liking to. While some of these may ring a bell due to sightings on some of your favourite celebrities, others will be new names. From swimwear to ready-to-wear to accessories, get ready to shop the Australian brands fashion girls are already obsessing over and that you soon will be too.
Go on to read all about the Australian brands fashion girls love and to shop our favourite items from each.
