Introducing: Rebecca Vallance.

Australian fashion label Rebecca Vallance has firmly established itself as one to watch on the international scene. Launched in 2009 and debuting for the first time at New York Fashion Week in February of 2014, Rebecca Vallance has become one of Australia’s latest fashion exports.

Signature to Rebecca Vallance’s collections is her structured tailoring, luxurious fabrications, and inspired use of leather. Combined with a global aesthetic, the unique a look of the Rebecca Valance collection – one she describes as “menswear-like cuts with a ladylike polish” – has quickly made it a favourite of style icons, celebrities and top models alike. 

Vallance first developed her keen eye for fashion and design by working as a model at age 13, embarking on a career as publicist for top labels Prada, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana shortly thereafter. Vallance’s fashion-entrenched past provides deep roots for the label, while her frequent travels imbue each season’s collection with a distinct signature look.
