Melbourne fashion designer, Anthea Crawford began her career in the fashion industry at the young age of 16, originating in the Flinders Lane fashion houses that are still sought-out today. The start to her career was just the beginning of her fashion pinnacle; reaching beyond 30 years of fashion. A monumental climax to her original humble beginnings in 1980, when she first launched her own label “Anthea Crawford,” after completing her studies at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT).
Even today, she is still responsible for designing and producing 98% of her collection which she believes is critical to the quality and integrity of her brand. You can find her range of clothing at most freestanding boutiques in Melbourne and Sydney, and across 25 David Jones and Myer department stores throughout Australia.
