One glance and you know that dress or bikini is Zimmermann. This iconic Australian label stays true to its original vision: sophisticated femininity, clever colour combinations and delicate original prints. Sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann founded their namesake label in 1991. They fast won a loyal following - smart, sartorially savvy women with an eye for quality fabrics and clever cutting.
Early in its evolution, Zimmermann took the bold step of fusing fashion with swimwear and presented it to the world. It soon found its footing with the fashion elite. Zimmermann’s bold original prints, beautifully made one-pieces and sculptural bikinis create a new point of reference in flattering, sexy and stylish swimwear.
Demand from its growing international clients has seen the opening of Zimmermann stores in the United States. In 2011, Zimmermann opened its first US store on Robertson Boulevard, Beverly Hills California. The brand now has five US stores located including Mercer Street in New York City, East Hampton, Americana Manhasset, Robertson Boulevard, and in 2015, launched its new Los Angeles flagship on Melrose Place.
Zimmermann have been the recipient of multiple fashion awards including AFI Best Swimwear Designer, Prix de Marie Claire Best Swimwear Brand and Prix de Marie Claire Best Australian Designer, to name a few. In 2014, Zimmermann was the recipient of the Australian Fashion Laureate award. Nicky has been a member of the Australian Fashion Week Advisory Board and was previously the fashion mentor for the Qantas Spirit of Australia Youth Awards. Nicky was a founding board member of the Australian Fashion Chamber.
