We have so many Aussie exports to be proud of. The Hemsworth brothers, Aussie wines, wool, vegemite and the list goes on. But now there are a range of Aussies brands and designers taking the global market by storm.
The upcoming Life Instyle trade show is full of gorgeous brands, both up-and-coming and established. Open to trade and media, it is like walking through the aisles of the most AMAZING department store and getting a sneaky peek into the upcoming seasons ahead. I’m starting my prep for the shows and on Australia Day couldn’t help but call out my favourite Aussie brands who are killing it overseas.
It’s no wonder Incy Interiors is making a name for itself outside of Australia. Kristy Withers has created a luxury brand of children’s interiors with simple, classic designs that fills a definite gap in the market. With recent collaborations with the likes of Megan Morton, Incy Interiors will surely continue it’s global rise.
Spotted on the likes of the Kardashian kids, Huxbaby is a fairly new label in the kids market. With stylish monochrome prints on modern designs, Huxbaby is the ultimate in cool for mini trendsetters with an Instagram feed that is drool worthy!
I have never been able to go past the signature florals and sweet scents of the divine Mrs Darcy range and knew it was only a matter of time before this Sydney based label would burst onto the global scene. Now stocked in stores across New Zealand, Asia, Europe, the US and South America, Mrs Darcy has packed her (gorgeous) bags for some exciting overseas adventures.
Inspired by the Swedish upbringing of founder, Sara Lundgren, Zakkia‘s Scandinavian style homewares certainly have global appeal. Designed in Australia and hand-produced through collaborations with a number of small, family-owned potteries around the world, Zakkia products are now stocked across Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and the US.
Aden + Anais
You may remember the adorable muslin wrap that Prince George made his first public appearance in as his parents left the hospital back in 2013. It was a wrap from Aden + Anais, a label developed by an Aussie turned New Yorker who couldn’t source the muslin wraps in the US that filled the shelves of Australian baby stores. Already a global player, Aden + Anais is now stocked in 65 countries worldwide.
Each of these brands will be exhibiting at the upcoming Life Instyle, 18-21 February 2016 at the Royal Hall of Industries and Hordern Pavilion.
