When it comes to fashion in the land Down Under, Australia has fast become the crème de la crème for designers and brands alike not only on our shores but right around the globe. Sure, we aren't known for the makings of the High Street, but what we lack in that department we make up for in true homegrown talent who know how to sew a darn good pair of trousers.
Australian Fashion Week made its debut back in 1996, can you believe it, that's 20 years in the making. Our first taste from the Australian fashion designer style stars began in the early 90s with Alex Perry and his glamorous gowns, and Ksubi - who still take us to denim heaven season after season. Fast forward to today we have the originals (#blessed) in the mix with an added array of labels to thank for our wardrobe of wonders. There's Maurie & Eve and C/meo Collective, the Sydney born turned international stars Sass & Bide, Tome and Zimmermann, not forgetting the up-and-comers like Dyspnea and Backstage who proudly hold the Made in Australia title.
On another note, 'tis the season to be shopping. (Because isn't it always?) It's time to spend some of your hard earned dollar bills on that investment bag/coat/shoes you've been saving in your wishlist these past few months.
Need some inspiration? Go right ahead and add these beauties to your shopping cart. Freshen up your closet, and invest in the Best of Australian Fashion for this season and beyond.

Brother-sister duo - Camilla and Marc Freeman - have been in our wardrobes since 2003 bringing us a luxurious label to love forever and ever. Class tailoring, femme prints and sleek separates. PS - did you know they have a little sister, C&M?
Conceived by Australian blogger/influencer turned designer, Alexandra Spencer and designer friend Teale Talbot, Réalisation Par is the brand that everybody is talking about. Réalisation does not create collections rather it focuses on crafting the perfect wardrobe staples and showstoppers. Modern but with a retro twist, you'll see these designs on every cool-girl Instagram.
SIR is still a new kid on the block but is rising fast. In fact this brand is now officially stocked at Barney's. Standing for "separates, intimates and ready-to-wear", SIR is minimalistic and simple. The brand is self described as 'confident, distinctive and versatile.'
Perth born Kym Ellery is a name not to be forgotten. Tinkering in the realm of dream-like avant garde collections, the parade of fabrics, smart-structured tailoring and unique choice of shapes add a certain attitude to your look.
Both polished and playful, Ginger & Smart is a brand for the cool and confident woman. Each season this label toys with completely different ideas whether it be bold prints or paired back monochromatic looks, all the while remaining true to the luxurious and contemporary aesthetic that's made the brand so popular.
Made for the fun loving girl who likes to go Out-out, Maurie & Eve serves up a mix of feminine styles with a modern, tough edge and the best kind of fancy everyday-wear to be comfortable in. Chic is always on the agenda.
Be enchanted with Aje season after season. If you love a touch of sparkle, look no further. Transeasonal basics and bespoke pieces are all on the menu.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
