AUSTRALIAN DESIGNERS TO WATCH IN 2021

While most of 2020 was spent in a tracksuit, we’re pleased to say this new year has brought with it a full social calendar of engagements, birthdays, hens and weddings to get dressed up and celebrate. We’ve been keeping an eye on the brands you need to add to your wardrobe (if only for a weekend) in 2021. Style Theory offers a range of designers including Scanlan Theodore, Manning Cartell and Dion Lee dress hire available Australia-wide for your next event. Here are our top Australian fashion designers to watch in 2021, why we love them and why they are available to rent at Style Theory.

DION LEE

Sydney designer Dion Lee has established himself a global following. He launched his first collection at Australian Fashion Week, and then went on to present his collections in London before relocating in New York where he frequently shows his collections. Established in 2009, we find ourselves loving each collection more than the last. Every range is unique yet consistently combines innovative construction, with an awareness of the female form. Known for his unconventional construction contrasted with traditional tailoring, Dion Lee is the epitome of modern Australian style in the fashion industry. His architectural silhouettes and tactile innovative fabrics create dresses that leave us wanting more. 

Our Dion Lee choice for this season is the Whitewash Fine Line Dress. Did you recently get engaged over the Christmas break? This is the perfect engagement party dress! Featuring a low back with rouleau cross straps and an asymmetrical hem. This dress not only looks great, but it’s also easy to dance the night away in. 

SCANLAN THEODORE

Established in 1987 Scanlan Theodore is renowned for modern elegance. Each collection consists of simple and clean designs made in high-quality fabrics. “The label's dedication to independent beauty is infused in each Scanlan Theodore creation, defining a new genre of femininity. The Scanlan Theodore woman is confident, intelligent and complex — for it’s all the layered facets of life that make a design, an image and indeed a woman, a timeless beauty of memorable quality.” - Scanlan Theodore.

We can’t get enough of their crepe knit dresses. Every collection brings a new colour and style to choose from. These are the perfect dresses to hire as a guest of a wedding or engagement.

Our Scanlan Theodore pick for this season is the Crepe Knit Bralette Dress. This dress is available in blue and pink. The dress includes a separate belt which can be styled at the front, back, side, or worn without. This is the perfect dress for anyone attending an upcoming wedding.

MANNING CARTELL

One of our favourite brands that is accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia is Manning Cartell. Based in Sydney, each piece is made in their atelier. Manning Cartell is bold and fearless coming out with striking colours, embellishment features and innovative fabrics season after season. Not only do we love their clothes, but we also love the message behind the brand. MC is dedicated to sustainability by ensuring transparency within the business and to their customers. This Australian designer brand has a cult celebrity following including Gigi Hadid, Amal Clooney and Jessica Beil.
Our Manning Cartell dress choice for the season is the Surround Sound Dress. This dress is perfect for the girl who wants to stand out! Made from lightweight, snake impression fabric, this dress is a real showstopper. Featuring asymmetrical one-sleeve design and revealing circular cut out. It’s cut to a maxi length with ruched detail at the left side. Let it pop by teaming it with tonal heels and accessories.
