15 New Aussie Labels You Need To Keep An Eye On

Out with the old

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 28th October 2022

Call us biased, but Australian fashion has truly become its own biggest competitor. With new designers creating head-turning garments and innovative pieces on the daily, there’s an abundance of runway-worthy fashion pumping out from Down Under. 

While we all love the usual suspects (Aje! Sir! Dion Lee! Oroton! St. Agni! Bassike! Matteau! So on and so forth…), there’s a new lineup of Australian labels that are slowly but surely making their way into our wardrobes. Homegrown and ravishing to boot, here are 15 emerging brands on our shores we’ll be keeping an eye on: 

Wilhelmina Melbourne

Designed to fill the gaps in your wardrobe, Wilhelmina’s collection of timeless jackets and skirts to pair will be staples you’ll return to again and again. Kudos to their faux fur jackets for embracing the Y2K resurgence with a vegan flair. 


Ten Eveleen

With the corset renaissance well and truly in full swing, this Noosa label couldn’t have come at a better time. Upcycling gorgeous vintage prints to create garments with personality, each handmade piece is sure to have heads turning your way.
