Well I'm sure Burberry is no new brand you have just heard now, and am almost positive anyone reading this blog knows that Burberry is an England designer. The company was founded in 1856 and is well known for the gabardine trench coat for both men and women and its famous beige/black grid line design. Another household fashion designer is John Galliano who has created one of the most fashionable and successful mens wear line. Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood are two other amazing designer from the English roots!

Along with amazing clothing, England is famously know for its luxury shoes, and designers like Alexander and Churchplay a huge role in England's luxury shoe success.

After doing some research I found out that Greece is ranked one of the highest on the top 10 fashionable countries in the world!.. who knew!? .. don't get me wrong, I think Greece is beautiful and is on my bucket list of places to visit, but high in fashion, I honestly didn't see that coming!
After digging even further I found a few Greek designers that play a huge role to Greece's fashion!
The first designer is Andria Papadopoulu (definitely a Greek name)  and after looking at her website I can see why she is such a huge icon and has made a name in fashion! In the spirit of winter I looked mroe closely at her winter collection which is absolutely stunning. She combined an edgy-rock vibe with flowy, Greece-like gowns in her collection to make a really unique palette of clothing. Her Winter 2010 collection consists of colors of blacks, silver, gold, white, and metallics which are mixed well to create the perfect piece of clothing. For more info, and the Winter 2010 gallery visit:

Elena Vorrea is another great example of a Greek designer who is well known for designing beautiful gowns and dresses of all sorts.

And finally Makis Tselios who is well-known for his haute couture and  wedding dresses collection

When people think of fashion, a country like Australia doesn't usually come to mind, this is mainly due tot he fact that larger, more fashion-driven countries over-shadow small ones like Australia! That's not to say, however, that Australia doesn't have a unique style of its own, which it clearly does. Similar to European fashion, it also has a modern approach and fashion-forward styles. The one main difference is that when comparing European fashion to that of Australian it can be said that Australia takes a more casual approach, as opposed to the hard-edge of European fashion.
Many of Australia's designers have been inspired by cultural influences. When I personally think of Australia I think of a laid-back lifestyle, with a lot of naturalistic qualities. A very tranquil place!
A more detailed look at three well-known Australian fashion designers are as follows:

Wayne Cooper:
Wayne Cooper combines beautiful soft palette's with pops of bright colors into his designs. Creating a chic-edgy look with a mix of flowing subtlety.

Collette Dinnigan:
Collete Fall/Winter 2010 collection is absolutely stunning. Integrating leather, and lace with a palette of black and dark blues creates an edgy rock-glam style that is absolutely gorgeous for this season!

Easton Pearson:
No matter what season, Easton Pearson is all about those vibrant fun colors to lighten up anyone's mood. Easton is all about showing off beautiful tribal colors that is beyond any other designer known to date!
