One glance and you know that dress or bikini is ZIMMERMANN. This iconic Australian brand has stayed true to its original vision: sophisticated femininity, a passion for detail and a love of colour and print. Zimmerman was founded in 1991 by sister Nicky and Simone Zimmermann - the pair were fully equipped with the skills necessary to make their womenswear label a success. Just a year after inception, in 1992, the sisters opened their first Zimmermann boutique in Sydney, which helped drive the rapid expansion of the label. The brand profile was further increased in 1996 when Zimmermann presented at the first ever Australian Fashion Week in Sydney. Since then the Zimmermann fashion label has never looked back – it is undeniably the sister’s cohesive partnership, with Nicky in charge of the creative side and Simone managing sales and production, which has made Zimmermann the fashion juggernaut it is today. Winning many awards and accolades along the way, Zimmermann creates two ranges each season – Ready-to-Wear and Swimwear – which continue to satisfy demanding fashionista’s throughout the globe. As of 2011, Zimmermann had 15 standalone boutiques throughout Australia including in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane, as well as a recently opened standalone boutique in Los Angeles. Additionally, the Zimmermann brand is stocked in some of the world’s finest fashion boutiques, including Harrods of London, CK Tangs of Singapore, Lane Crawford of Hong Kong, and Neiman Marcus and Barneys stores throughout the US. In 2014, ZIMMERMANN was the recipient of the Australian Fashion Laureate award.
