Melbourne is often characterised as a city obsessed with black. Sure, we like to wear dark coats in winter, but this is also the city that spawned Gorman, Leonard St. and Obus, three labels that rival Marimekko when it comes to using prints and bright colours.
These two extremes are just the tip of the iceberg, though. Range wide enough in your hunt for Australian-designed womenswear and you'll find skatewear, formal frocks, affordable basics and everything in between. We may not be Paris, New York or London, but we've definitely got it good. Here's where to find garments from our brightest talents and beyond.
