Known best for their sophisticated, feminine aesthetics, Zimmermann is one of Australia’s most loved luxury fashion brands.
Founded by sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann back in 1991, the brand has continuously grown as a business over the last three decades. What began as a small business, designing then selling dresses at markets across Sydney, struck international fame with their swimwear.
The international attention Zimmermann got as a ‘swimwear brand’ then allowed the sisters to expand even more as a ready-to-wear fashion business, all the way to New York Fashion Week. They now have over 30 stores across the globe with an office in Pari which opened in 2019.
In regards to their success, Nicky Zimmermann has said:
“There are many things that will come across your path that makes what you’re doing difficult. You need to be able to have resilience to say ‘no I still want to do this and I’m going to continue’. But also to have support around you and not just people who will tell you what you want to hear.”
