The international Fashion Week circuit may be in full swing (first stop: New York), but here in the Southern Hemisphere, we’re all about championing Australian designers, all year around.

We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to high quality fashion that dares to be different – so much so that increasingly, our home-grown talent is asked to show in the world’s fashion capitals Paris, Milan, London and New York.

marie claire has joined forces with FIAT 500 to celebrate the Australian fashion industry. Our FIAT 500 Fashion Files delves into the working lives of eight of the country’s most acclaimed design talents, by way of in-depth interviews with style influencer Jasmin Howell.

Jasmin hit the road (in a FIAT 500, of course) to discover what drives marie claire editor Nicky Briger, along with designers Gary Bigeni, Alexandra and Genevieve Smart, Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen, Rebecca Vallance, Alice McCall, Rachel Gilbert and Jay Edwards of Edwards & Co. (because everyone knows the finishing touch to any outfit is an amazing haircut).

Our interviews with Nicky, Gary, Alexandra and Genevieve and Louise are now live – find out what makes them tick and discover their take on the trends you’re about to see everyone wearing.
