David Lawrence has always reflected the times and the women who wear it. Since the brand’s creation in 1978, it has been synonymous with luxury, modernity and female empowerment. This year we celebrated 40 years of being at the forefront of fashion and as we celebrate achieving this milestone, we look back at our rich history and remind ourselves of the journey we took to get here. Revisiting the David Lawrence story is impossible without revisiting the brand’s founder, David Bardas’ own. Our General Manager, Tina van Zyl, along with a few members from the David Lawrence team, enjoyed a celebratory luncheon with David and his daughter Belinda at Melbourne’s exclusive Bachas Restaurant. They discussed the brand’s humble origins, the setbacks, the seemingly endless frustrations and the euphoric triumphs that are part of the brand’s history.
In celebration of our 40th year anniversary, we have designed an exclusive collection in collaboration with talented Australian textile artist Victoria Garcia. A refined Victorian botanical world, delicately interconnected, David Lawrence x Victoria Garcia explores an elegant and untamed wilderness, flowing with life. Detailed floral illustrations and quality, timeless pieces, the collection encourages eyes to linger for those subtle details.
The softness of a wool garment is easy to fall in love with, so you likely want those pieces to last for many winters to come. Keep reading to find out how you can get the most out of your treasured wool pieces.
At David Lawrence, International Women’s Day is one of our favourite times of the year because it’s the perfect occasion to celebrate the women who lead our business. This year, we #PressForProgress and shine light on five exceptional women who challenge stereotypes, influence the beliefs and actions of others and forge a positive visibility of women.
