Sydney and Melbourne are bursting with so many fantastic fashion designers that Brisbane can sometimes get forgotten (despite the strong retail fashion scene). As it turns out, little old Brisbane is actually home to some of the most unique designers in the country. Here are our top picks.
Jericho Road Clothing
Jericho Road Clothing is known for quirky patterns paired with classic designs—think bold colours with even bolder patterns, such as giant fish and ants. If you’re on Instagram, you might have seen the designers’ work modelled by fashion influencers around the country. Their pieces are unforgettable and not for those wanting to blend in to a crowd.
Alice Nightingale’s vintage-inspired designs are also influenced by Australian nature. She hand sews, prints, knits and embroiders the gorgeous pieces right in Brisbane. Follow along on social media to stay up-to-date with the two-of-a-kind lines—you really won’t see many people wearing the same thing as you if you wear an Alice Nightingale piece.
Une piece is all about giving women an option for a sexy one-piece swimsuit that is also super sun safe and practical for Australian summers. Carly Brown, founder and designer, takes inspiration from the South of France for her classic long-sleeve one-piece designs with a zipper front, so you choose between a conservative look or a plunging neckline.
A brand for feminine fashion lovers, Maiocchi feels as if it’s been on the Brisbane fashion scene forever. Influenced by Japanese and vintage trends, these pieces are made right here in lil’ old Brisbane, which means the quality is of a really high standard. If you love florals, colourful designs and a sensible hemline, this is the brand for you.
Dogstar is an iconic Brisbane brand by well-known Japanese designer Masayo Yasuki. Known for boxy Japanese styles, funky tunics and basics that will last you a lifetime, the brand also teams up with local accessory designers who pair perfectly with their unique style.
