Taking time to stand still and recognise achievements or effort is one thing that doesn’t happen enough in Australia. We are stereotypically hard workers and see what we do as essential, rather than a task for reward.

Yesterday was an example of those moments of pause and acknowledgement with the Australian Fashion Laureate announcement for 2016. An award which highlights innovation, passion, creativity and success in the Australian fashion industry. This year we saw some of our favourite labels gather to find out the winners for; The Australian Fashion Laureate, Best Australian Womenswear, Best Australian Menswear, Best Australian Retailer and Best Australian Emerging Designer. This year the winners are:

Toni Maticevski – The Australian Fashion Laureate

Kim Ellery – Best Australian Womenswear

Strateas. Carlucci – Best Australian Menswear

Parlour X – Best Australian Retailer

macgraw – Best Australian Emerging Designer

A massive congratulations to all the winners, and also to all nominees for their continual efforts which see the Australian fashion industry gaining its well earned spot on the international radar.
