Sisters in Style
Sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann are the dynamic duo behind the Zimmermann brand. Between Nicky’s degree in fashion issued from the East Sydney Technical College and Simone’s background in marketing, the pair were more than equipped to set up their eponymous label in 1991. Zimmermann clothing experienced quick success; the sisters began building a respected reputation in their home city of Sydney and eventually worldwide. Today, Nicky and Simone continue to uphold the integrity of their brand while designing their collections.
The Saviour of Sydney Style
Zimmermann first made an appearance in Sydney fashion circle in 1991. In 1992, the first Zimmermann boutique opened in the city, selling Zimmermann dresses, bikinis and other resort-wear items. The label’s feminine style was so popular that they were invited to take part in Australian Fashion week in 1996, a massive boost for Zimmermann. By 1999 the brand was winning awards, scooping the Swimwear Designer of the Year award at AFW. Zimmermann began to expand globally, and today the label maintains over 15 stores in Australia and the US. They’re also carried by prestigious retailers including Harvey Nichols, Barney’s New York and Marcus Nieman.
Beach-Babe Fashion With A Feminine Touch
Favoured for their fresh approach to ladies resort-wear, the Zimmermann sisters have a tendency towards the feminine. The brand favours a flattering, strong silhouette, evocative of what it once meant to be a stylish woman. Delicate, delectable prints are laid out in sophisticated colour combinations to further enhance the brand’s ladylike aesthetic, and make them stand out in a sea of bland ready-to-wear. A Zimmermann jumpsuit is a worthwhile investment for women who love to lounge by pools and seasides, invoking a light, playful aura perfect for any beach-babes. Cheryl Cole, Miranda Kerr and Khloe Kardashian, three of the biggest celebrity trend-setters, have all worn a Zimmermann creation in the past.
With the recent opening of their first US store, Zimmermann are thriving more than ever. The brand is proving its worth in terms of covetable clothing, and treating yourself to something from Zimmermann now could well pay off in style-cred in the coming years.
