The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky.

Australia has a reputation for exporting great style—from the country’s gorgeous models (Abbey Lee Kershaw, Jessica Hart, Miranda Kerr) to its famously feminine labels like ZimmermannLover, and Camilla and Marc. It’s easy to see the land’s laid-back, vibrant culture reflected in its fashion, and the fact that Aussies don’t take themselves too seriously is refreshing.

Stylestalker
Yet another BFF duo is behind this affordable and fun label. Sue-Ann San and Rachel Zellic launched Stylestalker in 2008 to feed their obsession with all things fashion- and style-related. The clothes are a fusion of their various inspirations—sometimes '90s grunge, sometimes '70s glam, but always accessible and playful. Bonus: They have an awesome blog where they post their own outfits as well as their friends'. So inspiring.

Fortunately for us here in the States, the country’s more under-the-radar labels are gradually becoming easier to access. Just stroll around New York’s Nolita neighborhood and you’ll find Damsel In Distress and the newly-opened B Space across the street, both of which stock some of the more elusive Australian labels. Plus, there are plenty of online retailers like Ausmode.com that make shopping for Australian designers super-easy, no matter what city you’re in.
