i knew some smart ass would remind me how badly i count at this hour of the morning and i also knew the dirty T word would be used- give it up! the sooner distressed denim dies the better (unless they're a legitimate pair of ten year old shreds).

Can I add Melbourne-based men's designer Andrew Chiodo to your list? It's worth checking out his store on Little Collins Street. Naturally, it's been super-reviewed!

This list is at risk of become full of names from Sydney and Melbourne - so perhaps I could suggest Razak (and his shop Miss Gladys Sim Choon) in quaint little Adelaide.

Pharis I've looked at what you've posted and you seem to be quite a well travelled person. So, to learn that you've considered chiodo for your top ten among the likes yohji, fahri, levis? etc just amazes me. I know fashion and design is personal and individual and we are all entitled to our opinions, choices, what have you, but chiodo......honestly. You've been to Comme des Garcons right?(Tokyo preferably, but anywhere will do) and you've seen the displays, the merchandising, the stock, THE WINDOWS for god's sake, haven't you? So you've learnt that chiodo isn't so much a designer but more of a re-hasher, a tracer. (Well imitation is the sincerest form of flattery isn't it Mr. Chiodo?) When in Tokyo next, Pharis, take a look. then you can save yourself the embarrasment of further posts. Comme with the life sucked out of it, lucky it's in Melbourne.

meh so over Tsubi........

Justine Taylor. Made and Hauser are my favourites..

Everything else seems so...same-o same-o

Although Tina Borg is pretty interesting......

I'm sure I've missed out on some really great labels but I can't think of any right now.

edited to add: Yes, I would have to say Lover is great too!

I adore Borg and Nevada.

I'd include Perth based label Sü.. good cuts, what I see in Dollhouse, Ink, Verve and Alice Euphemia is fabulous.

Nevada's construction is tre' dope....she can (and does) turn anything into a wearable art work... super talented!

of course I would find a thread like this before I head out to AU - what about SKND (street kid named desire), Rittenhouse, and Life With Bird? Any good? My cousins out there (2 girls in their twenties) really like these brands. Make good gifts for my bird back home?

Definitely gonna check these others too.

Cheers.
