As a country known for picturesque beaches and relatively sunny weather all year round, there’s little wonder Australian designers excel when it comes to creating summer collections. After all, if there’s one thing Australians inherently know, it’s how to dress for a warmer climate. Between swimwear-focused brands and minimalist resortwear labels, Australian designers have a reputation globally for creating coveted warm-weather essentials that fashion girls love.
Though, don’t just take my (relatively biased, Australian-born) word for it. Industry insiders agree, as recently there has been an increase in influencers dressed in dreamy Aussie brands. From Brittany Bathgate sporting the ultimate LBD (long black dress) by SIR the Label to Bettina Looney in an enviable floral maxi by Matteau, it is clear that influencers everywhere are appreciating the contemporary Australian sensibility. Christopher Esber has caught the eye of Camille Charrière, while Monikh has shown an affinity for multiple Australian designers, supporting Albus Lumen, Lee Mathews and Bec + Bridge lately.
