OUR STORY

OUR STORY

The designers behind Bec + Bridge, Becky Cooper and Bridget Yorston met in 2000 - it was their first day at Sydney’s, University of Technology. While a Bachelor Of Arts in Fashion & Textiles was the reason the two initially crossed paths, it would seem the universe had bigger plans. ‘Bec and Bridge’ - the affectionate pseudonym coined by friends for the inseparable duo - would, just a few years later, come to represent an exciting mainstay in the Australian fashion industry.

Graduating in 2003 with first class honours, Cooper and Yorston knew what needed to happen next. Bec + Bridge was founded and, in 2004, they were invited to show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

The brand had landed in the spotlight, with leading fashion buyers placing orders for some of the country’s most premium stores, and media declaring Bec + Bridge the label to have on your ‘must have’ list. Amongst their most loyal, long standing retail partners is Australia’s leading department store, David Jones, a partner the brand has worked closely with since 2007. They also work with prestigious International partners such as Farfetch, Luisa Via Roma, Harvey Nichols and Shopbop.

After more than 15 years in business together, the pair behind Bec + Bridge have never felt more inspired by what the brand is creating in the Australian fashion industry and, more excitingly still, how Australian design is infiltrating the global market. As women in business, and more specifically, women in the business of fashion, creating a brand that inspires a broad demographic of customers - women of all ages - has become increasingly important to Cooper and Yorston. The designers maintain that the brand, at its very core, must grow with them to ensure it maintains a relevance to where they are in their respective lives.

While each are still deeply ingrained in the ever-growing label, the notion of balance has never rang more true: “We are guided by the notion of balance - staying healthy, working hard, and taking time to relax. It is this balance that has been at the crux of our business model from the outset - we always have fun with fashion, but try not to take it too seriously.”

THE BRAND

THE BRAND

The epitome of modern, cool, confident - Bec + Bridge celebrates the wearer.

“We love how diverse the Bec + Bridge women are - we always want to celebrate this. The Bec + Bridge woman is fun, and spirited. She wants to feel confident and modern. Making women feel this way has always been incredibly important to us.”

Made with the female form in mind, you can spot a Bec + Bridge girl a mile away. Whether it be ever-alluring separates, the brand’s signature party dress or a piece from the highly covetable ‘Bridal Edit’, Bec + Bridge is for the girl who knows what she wants, but isn’t afraid to try styles imbued with a new season. As balmy days set in, the Bec + Bridge girl can be found in the brand’s signature swim edit. A collection of swimwear made with luxe terry towelling - sculpted bonded bases where bright pops of colour are complemented by more muted, but equally rich sun-kissed earthy tones.

Australian born, and locally produced in Sydney, Bec + Bridge is a brand grounded in the daily celebration of style, strength and confidence. That’s the Bec + Bridge girl.
