With the seasoning changing, is it time to update your wardrobe? Choosing new clothes and outfits can be a very fun and exciting experience. Whether you are shopping online or in store, there are plenty of options to choose from. Are you looking to update your entire wardrobe? Or are you looking for a new outfit for a night out?

Once you know what you are looking for, the next thing is to decide where to get it.  Did you know that Australia is home to a large number of talented designers?

With so much local, home grown talent to choose from, Australian designers should be on the top of your list. Let’s look at a few reasons why you should choose an Australian designer for your next new outfit.

You are supporting home grown talent

One of the most important reasons to support an Australian designer, is because they are Australian! They could be someone you know personally. Or someone putting their education to use. Someone who has built their business from a small sewing machine in their loungeroom and created a successful business.

Those in Australia who have become fashion designers have normally used their love and passion of fashion and turned it into a business. Not only for them, but for you. To be able to give back to the Australian  community.

Australian designers are local people, like you and I. They deserve your support.

You are supporting small businesses 

Every business needs to start somewhere. They could still be in the starting stages where they are making two or three of each product. Or they could have grown and now have factories of stock.

Either way, they began as an Australian small business.

You are supporting them, their businesses and their families by purchasing from them.

Every sale counts. It helps to pay the bills and put food on the table.

You will never quite understand the happiness and excitement that a small business goes through when a product is purchased. Or a positive review is made. Or even just one of their social media posts being shared. Each of these acts helps keep their business alive.

They know what we want

No one knows what an Australian wants, more than an Australian. Living here means that they know the climate, the style and what we want.

Australia and the people within it are very unique. Local designers know this and want to be able to bring this uniqueness across in their designs.

They are able to create beautiful pieces of clothing that suits the Australian way of life, the styles that we enjoy and also that are signature pieces.

The designers know we want to be comfortable and stylish at the same time. Without having to put too much effort into it.

The designers will have spent weeks, if not months researching and creating their products. From there they would have tested them to Australian standards and ensured that they are both practical and meet the necessary requirements. They have spent this time in order to provide a quality piece of clothing that will be loved by the Australian public. That is dedication right there!

Supporting Australian businesses, whether it is in your clothes shopping or other shopping needs is a special thing.

You are helping keep a dream alive and helping someone reach their goals. Starting a business is a scary adventure for a business owner. So to know that people are out there, searching for and purchasing their products  – it makes a huge difference.
