FASHION DOWN UNDER

Many people miss out Australia on the fashion map, but some of the most innovative new labels are coming from down under.

Here are some of my favourites:

EVIL TWIN
Being a twin (whether I'm the evil one or not is under debate) I'd love to own a piece of this! Evil Twin was created by Jodie McKenzie who discovered her love of fashion as a child when she rebelled against her parents dressing her the same as her twin sister (I hear you Jodie!) and started dressing herself. Inspired by punk and 80s vintage the label specialises in bold prints and edgy glitz.






SOMETHING ELSE
Something Else specialises in dreamy kaleidoscopic prints, patterned leggings and detailing such as exposed zippers and mesh panels. The ethos behind the label is to blend fashion and art to create wearable yet directional fashion. Their amazing picture heavy blog reveals their inpirations - bright patterns and otherworldly landscapes.





WE ARE HANDSOME
This is by far the jazziest swimwear label I've come accross. We Are Handsome use iconic prints to create amazing swimwear pieces which are functional enough to also wear as a top. Roaring lions, flamingos, sportscars and 80s photos all grace the range of bikinis and swimsuits and have been worn by the likes of Rihanna. AMAZING!
