Young Republic.

Starting out in the fashion industry is tough; whether your strengths are through photography, styling, writing or designing, it is hard to get that initial step up on to the sparkling ladder of success...let alone working your way UP to the top.

Recently, I was lucky enough to be invited to check out, an internationally recognised online fashion destination, based down under and founded by Aussie dream team, Marianne sea and Andrew Yang.The unique site offers an avenue for independent fashion designers AND lovers to make a name for themselves within the industry, as I myself am desperately trying to do.
Young Republic offers a one of a kind, eclectic mix of up and coming talent, catering for both men and women, through their extensive product range. Not only do they showcase mens/womenswear, jewellery and accessories; but also fantastic home ware, for the fashion forward.

Avid style fans and fashion followers worldwide, can shop the streets of their favourite cities from the comforts of their own sofa. Young republic is providing the world with access to fresh, new and unseen talent that will soon be pathing the paths of our fashion future; "We wanted to bring that exciting experience online" says co-founder, Marianne Sea.

After browsing the site and flicking through the pages of endless desirable design talent, I have fallen in love with a UK based brand, "Hey Jenny Jenny"; a small collection of quirky silver jewellery, inspired by everyday objects. The face behind the brand is Glasgow born Jennifer Nicolson, who has been creating shiny pieces of jewellery, fit for the magpie in all of us, since 2009; she describes her style as "interesting and playful" and the collection certainly doesn't disappoint, taking influence from birds, buttons and bold shapes. My favourite piece being the "Flora Necklace" soon as pay day arrives I will certainly be investing. Check out the full collection on: Young Republic - Hey Jenny Jenny.

P.S. With all this talk of Oz, don't us here in the UK wish that we too were entering the Summer Season and not leaving it behind?! Trip to Australia anyone?
