About two weeks ago, we attended the Australian Five event that featured five extremely talented designers from down under. Designers Christopher Esber, Fernando Frisoni, Kym Ellery, Magdalena Velveska and Michael Lo Sordo all brought their unique and stylish aesthetics to the stage with three looks from their Fall/Winter collections that all incorporated merino wool fibre. In partnership with the Woolwark Company and the Australians in New York Fashion Foundation, the annual G'Day USA initiative was hosted to promote Australian business here in the U.S to buyers, editors, stylists, and the like.
The Australian Five Designers
The event was held at the super hip Crosby Street Hotel in a very intimate setting and was bustling with industry personnel. Here is a little taste of some of the hottest, talented designers Australia has to offer. All photos are courtesy of the Australian Five event.

Overall, we feel the evening was a success and in the future, we hope to see more Aussie design sense integrated into the U.S. marketplace. This will not only bring newness, but variety to the American fashion scene. We look forward to seeing future fashion from these designers and what they have in store for upcoming seasons!
