6 fashion labels from down under

If you ask us, all eyes should be on New-Zealand and Australia in 2016. The fashion industry is buzzing down under. With so much going on, we decided it was time to introduce you to six labels that are making our hearts skip a beat. Just like when we were in love with another great Australian product: Heartbreak High.

Made from seed to garment. New-Zealand label Kowtow is all about sustainability. They only use 100% organic and fair trade cotton to make their collection of classic fashion silhouettes. Looking for timeless basics? Check out their ‘Building Blocks’ collection, these pieces can be paired with anything or worn as separates.


To all feminine, youthful and free souls out there, check this independent womenswear label from Australia. Hunter designs timeless clothing with a focus on quality fabrics and wearable pieces, embodying the unassuming elegance and grace of the Hunter girls. The clothing is made locally in Australia, operating on a made-to-order basis from Canberra.


This label stands for A Part Of Me and that’s for a reason! APOM is a collaboration between the Norwegian Kajsa and the Australian Kate, sharing the same affinity for fun clothing you love to live in. You might figured wearability is an important for the girls. These garments can be worn across the season, across the seas and during the whole year, becoming a part of you.


What happens if an Australian designer and an Operations Manager of a Bangladeshi charity meet? They use their experiences and skills to create a label that supports and sustains rural producers and artisans in Bangladesh. Bhalo empowers customers to know the origins of their cloths, for example: by linking each garment to a video of the piece being made. Awesome!


Vege Threads
A lot is happening for this Australian eco fashion label this year. The Vege Threads’ SS16 collection not only includes a new and limited run of the 70’s gaucho collar pant, but also comes with basics like shirts and tanks. Vege Threads uses collaboration as a way to bring forward-thinking creatives together, rumor has it an exclusive collab of eco swimwear is also coming this year.


B Goods Label
Expect simple classic garments made from natural fibres. Yep, B Goods Label really honors its name. They believe fashion has a responsibility to the environment and because of that, they’re completely transparant in their manufacturing and ensure quality and care in every piece of clothing, or should we say fabric? The brand recently released a collection of 100% hemp linnen bedding.
