Bec + Bridge
Approaching the brands 15 year anniversary, Bec + Bridge are a Sydney based label known for their elegant lines and chic silhouettes. The label founded on the friendship of two girls, Bec Cooper and Bridget Yorston who both studied fashion design at the University of Technology Sydney, was born as a denim line before expanding into womenswear. Designer’s Bec and Bridget began customizing jeans for their friends by spraying, dyeing and distressing them, which caught the eyes of boutique owners who began to place orders. This was the point that Bec + Bridge the label was born, as their friendship organically developed into a seamless business partnership. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia invited Bec + Bridge to exhibit their collection as part of the New Generation show in 2004. Buyers took notice and the label was stocked in boutiques across the country.
In 2006, David Jones approached the label wanting to be involved in their collection for Winter 2007; this has led to an ongoing retail relationship, with David Jones remaining a key stockist for the brand today. Bec + Bridge strikes a fine balance between aspirational and achievable fashion. Contoured lines and sleek silhouettes create a distinct signature style that pulse from every stitch and seam with a contemporary and progressive edge. Bec & Bridge designs are bold and confident. In 2010 the designers won the DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship for business acumen. Bec + Bridge’s point of difference is that 95% of their designs are produced in Australia. Today, they have more than 500 global stockists. Bec & Bridge has also been spotted on the shoulders of some of the most recognizable fashion faces in the world – such as those belonging to Taylor Swift, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski and Chrissy Teigen.
