There is much debate and division in regard to our Australia Day. The way we see it at Cloth Boutique is an opportunity to celebrate and be proud of Australian fashion. Our iconic labels represent the modern Aussie woman and her plight for a chic versatile wardrobe.
Whether it be the reimagined organic cotton poplin boyfriend shirt by Bassike sporting unique stitching and pocket detail or the sophisticated style of the Viktoria & Woods unisex pleated trouser with matching blazer in an oversized relaxed look.
Let’s shine a spotlight on the Australian designers you need to know about in 2023.
Blanca has sourced premium textural fabrics to give a classic shirt some modern edge and designed styles to see any Aussie woman at the beach or uptown bar.
