Zimmermann, Zimmermann Oh So Zimmermann!

The other day in class we were asked who our favourite Australian Designer is. This question normally leaves me at a standstill, because I love Australian fashion. Half the class said Sass and Bide, but at the moment, without hesitation, I have a Zimmermann infatuation! In the past two month I feel as though I’ve bought half of their current collection! The delicate silks, silhouettes, femininity factor and colours (because they love lilac) are completely amazing. At the moment Zimmermann clothing gives me that completely ‘I die’ Rachel Zoe moment and because of this, the list of pieces I want continues to expand! It seems as though it has the same effect on New Yorkers.
Zimmermann is currently stocked in America, in high department stores like Barney’s, Saks, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Intermix. However, due to its high demand (and well the best international marketing strategy) sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann plan to open up their very first pop up store in Greene Street Soho, in June. The sisters are taking their apparel, swimwear, handbags and footwear and making it directly available to New Yorkers, in one place via their first street front store. According to Zimmermann they are taking it ‘slow and steady’, however, this is only a small part of their major plans for US expansion.

ROSEMOUNT UPDATE: As Rosemount draws closer and closer, I cannot hold back the excitement! On Monday morning at 9am Lisa Ho will dazzle us with her collection and officially open Rosemount Australian Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010/11! As I’m so obsessed with the fashion world, Rosemount Australian Fashion Week is one of the best weeks of the year! Even better, this year I will be working there! I’m currently set to work at the Therese Rawsthorne, Romance was Born (which is one of the craziest shows!), and Dion Lee shows, which is completely amazing! Being in the presence of fashion’s elite for Rosemount Fashion Week, words cannot explain, I am honestly living my dream!
