11 Australian Fashion Brands You'll Want to Know About Before Everyone Else

Not to play favorites, but Australian fashion brands are killing it lately. Sure, there are always certain countries that are known for their strong fashion presence (France, Japan, and Italy, to name a few). But recently, the emerging brands coming out of Australia are so good that we thought they deserved their own feature. Maybe it's the country's perpetual beach weather or maybe it's the population's effortless demeanor—either way, Australia has something up its sleeve that makes it home to some of the coolest up-and-comers in fashion.

Take the brand Albus Lumen, for example. Retailers can't seem to keep its earthy, minimalist dresses in stock. The brand's breezy linen dresses hit precisely the right note with us—we can instantly envision ourselves wearing one beachside with a straw hat perched on our heads. And then there's underground brand With Jéan, which features floral button-front dresses that seem like a cross between Réalisation Par and Reformation—the recipe for the next It-girl brand (Aimee Song is already a fan).

Ahead, discover the Australian fashion brands everyone should know about in 2018—from Instagram-worthy dresses to minimalistic swimwear.

Albus Lumen

Albus Lumen's elevated linen pieces make the brand a go-to for polished summer staples. For women with classic style, it's definitely one to bookmark.

With Jéan

A cross between Réalisation and Reformation, there's no surprise as to why this Aussie brand has a growing following of fashion It girls.

Both French and American girls are fans of this up-and-coming swimwear line.

Pereira Fitzgerald's dainty cotton separates have a subtly French vibe that I just love.
