This month Sydney's long established fashion retailer, Robby Ingham, welcomed a stellar lineup of Australian designers to its Paddington store. Sitting alongside international names such as Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Thakoon and Proenza Schouler are now local labels Lover, Goot by Josh Goot, Therese Rawsthorne, Jac & Jack, Laurence Pasquier and Banjo & Matilda. Business partner Marlene Mangioni explains the introduction of local labels as a natural progression for the store: "We chose these labels because we believe they are the big players in Australian fashion and are some of the most commercially viable labels both from a client’s point of view as well as from a fashion perspective. These labels are well established, which gives us the confidence that they will be of the highest quality standard and both produced and delivered on time." The Robby Ingham store has undergone a revamp in the last twelve months and will continue to evolve with a new website and continued support of Aussie labels. Watch this space.
