Make it 10.

Going through my suitcase/wardrobe recently in London, I came to realisation of my appreciation that has stayed true to more than a few particular fellow Australian's designs. Through all the years I've spent working in fashion in Oz, and representing it, these guys have continued to renew and reinvent with quality and uniqueness that youll want to keep around forever. Something good is definately going on in the water down under.

Kitty Grace:
Previously designer of "Illionaire", Kat invents the sexiest silhouette possible for women. With outrageously feminine colours and cuts, you wont be looking for the perfect little black dress any longer.

 A.T.G. Women:
I first discovered this emerging label by Nikki Penny when i shot her lookbook and was amazed at the originality and daringness of her direction. Wetsuit materials, sporty leather, sheer red pants, sexy bandeus and cool jackets all in one collection. These are stand-out peices and i get comments from all stylish vixen types every time i rock any of them.

Crystal and metal jewellry at its original finest in my opinion. So eclectic and unique it has you drooling at first sight. Latest campaign features Dree Hemmingway.
 Romance Was Born: If my imagination exploded into clothing i think it would create something along the lines of what these guys do. Futuristic animalistic psychadelic craze of prints and combinations that are most definately eye catching to say the least. The printed jumpsuits are a favourite on stage for Sneaky Sound System super spunk Connie Mitchell too.

Ten Peices: A little under the radar, connesuers Maurice Terzini and Ian Nessick have created 3 ranges now of each Ten Peices. Colour blocking using mostly blacks and greys, its all about the quality and cut here. Slight Comme influences, using the finest italian cottons and jersey its super schmick, the trousers with braces are a unisex winner.
Josh Goot: Long- time favourite from the beginning of the perfect jersey tanks. Goot is continuously evolving his collections, working with moulding the silhoutte of the body, great cuts and fabrics, and unique prints. Perfect for basic peices and stand-out sleek sophistication.
Graz Eyewear: What a legend this guy is in the frame department. He used to work his magic @ Ksubi and now hes working a whole lot more. Chunky fantastic combos with fellow designer Ellery, ranging down to the finest lightest sleek designs you could possibly flatter your face with.
Chronicles of Never: Worn in everyday quality goods. The mens jeans are great, so is the leather, and the shades too. Basic customised tees, original boots, great streetwear.
Nathan Smith: This guys minimalist peices are still a staple in my suitcase going on 4 years. Perfect tees, simple dresses, comfy pants, neutral colours, nice feeling cotton and jerseys. Chuck it on like its nothing but chic. So good.
Ksubi: Favourite for a long time. Ksubi rules the cool. Customised denim available. Kings of denims, streetwear creating almost their own genre. Cool sunnies, fun colours, funny prints, always something to add to your collection in any season. My favs are still the one-off laser print jeans in found in a sale, done by Mikey Nolan.
Keep up the good work guys! And if you dont know, now you know.
Love from London.
