A fashionable partnership

After posting earlier this week about designer Therese Rawsthorne closing her label, I started thinking about how tough it is for fledgling designers to build a successful brand. It’s possibly even more so in Australia – our small population and large distance from the rest of the world can often mean a pretty limited market – but up-and-comers face similar challenges no matter where they’re based.

It’s a pet hate of mine: discovering an excellent new brand… only to see it close a short time later.  Sydney designer Therese Rawsthorne’s laidback tailoring provided a unique aesthetic for both her eponymous label and her TR Ensemble brand, and I was sad to see both disappear after only a few short years.
