Following in the footsteps of Zimmermann’s shoot to fashion stardom, Australian brand Acler shows us what the industry is made of down under.
Talk about upcoming Australian Designers! Acler, a clothing label formed in 2015 has slowly been receiving the positive recognition they deserve. After making its Sydney runway debut this May, Acler has now stepped up the ladder and opened up a showroom in Paris as part of the Men’s fashion week, earning the brand much admiration from fashion influencers who attended the event.
Within a time frame of just three years, Acler has made a name for itself for producing garments of complex tailoring and fabric manipulation, whilst still keeping a minimal aesthetic. But the real celebration is the brand’s illusive rise to fame.
It’s no surprise if you’ve never heard of the brand, even Vogue Editors were embarrassed about their lack of knowledge. Still, Acler has managed to achieve everything a rookie label could have dreamt about since 2015.
Co-Designers Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto first met at their former job, Australian Fashion Labels, where they headed the team of designers behind C/MEO Collective and Finders Keepers. Acler was born and less than two years after conception, the brand was seen on the one and only Queen B. Just one Beyonce post later, in which she donned the Fyffe bodice, and the label was experiencing a sell out on pre-orders.
Since then, Acler has constantly been spotted on popular bloggers and famous influential fashion individuals. Just last month, the brand’s Gold Denim Jacket was spotted on yet another major influencer: Kourtney Kardashian.
Not long after, the multi-entertainer Priyanka Chopra was spotted sporting pink Acler trousers, as she was heading on a romantic rendezvous with her new boyfriend, Nick Jonas. Needless to say, she looked expensively comfortable in those pants. #AIRPORTFASHIONGOALS
It’s clear that Acler’s rise to fame has been heavily influenced by the power of social media and famous fashion icons, here at FIB we’re rooting for all of the Australian Designers!
