As you might know, I’m currently in Australia poking around nooks and crannies, photographing inspiration and making friends with shop owners. This past week I spent some time at The Fabric Store, which has become an Australian staple in the fashion and textile world. Curating with perfection, it’s easy to navigate the rolls of cloth, making it a less daunting experience than a visit to Mood or B&J in Manhattan.
Some of the most experimental fabrics of the lot are from New Zealand and Australia, a fact that’s less foreign to the designers down under. The sales girl so kindly listed their top buyers & suppliers, including: Lisa Ho, Scanlan & Theodore, Betting Liano, Ksubi, Karen Walker, Kate Sylvester and Zimmerman.
