Lydia Pearson and Pamela Easton started their label to showcase a love of craft and design. Now, one of Brisbane’s most iconic fashion brands, Easton Pearson, declared they are officially closing down after 27 years in the business.
Within nine years of inception the label showed at Paris Fashion Week.
In 2009 a retrospective of Easton Pearson’s work was to be the first fashion design exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art. Displayed across four rooms and featuring more than 70 outfits, the exhibition explored and celebrated Easton Pearson’s unique artistic and creative design processes.
For Australian Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival 2013 in Sydney, Easton Pearson was selected as just the second Australian designer to receive the globally recognised honour of Mercedes-Benz Presents.
Easton Pearson has produced three collections annually for both the main brand, and recently also for Take Away by Easton Pearson — a collection of unique resort wear perfect for a warmer climate, or of course, a holiday.
Take Away by Easton Pearson has its own personality and ideology and continues to define a unique presence in the marketplace.
Easton Pearson currently has two standalone locations; boutiques on James Street, Brisbane and Oxford Street, Sydney.
The label has had a long-standing presence in David Jones Australian Designer, and has been stocked in some of the finest stores nationally and internationally, as well as online at eastonpearson.com and matchesfashion.com.
