We started Philosophy Australia over 15 years ago and have built a brand that is synonymous with wardrobe essentials, showpiece prints and sophisticated separates.

We design three collections annually – spring, high summer and winter. Each season we strive to create pieces that are stylish yet wearable, using premium fabrics for the best quality and fit. Early on we discovered Super Stretch Bengaline, a wonderfully comfortable fabric to wear that is as versatile as it is functional, and we use it across our ranges to create garments that fit exceptionally well and look fantastic.

We are very proud to make most of our garments in Australia, with more than 90% of our Philosophy collection and 100% of our Drama label made right here in Sydney. We’ve got great relationships with our Australian suppliers and manufacturers, and by keeping production local we can maintain a high level of quality. It also means we are assisting in the growth of our local economy, something that is close to our hearts.

We’ve become well known in the fashion community for our use of quality materials and high standard of craftsmanship that ensures the longevity of our garments, wear after wear.

Our exquisitely tailored and ultra flattering pants have become a staple among women in the know, and our exclusive prints take you from work to weekend in a flash.

That’s exactly the kind of women we design for. Discerning, fashion-conscious women who value function as highly as form. The Philosophy woman has impeccable taste and an eye for detail, delighting in the design flourishes we add to our pieces. She isn’t afraid of colour and wants a balance in her wardrobe, between neutral tones and kaleidoscopic prints, to fit her mood.

Our collections can be found in over 300 of Australia and New Zealand’s most elegant boutiques.
