ZIMMERMANN was founded in Sydney in 1991 by sisters, Nicky and Simone. A truly iconic Australian brand, they've always stayed true to their original vision to create collections that embody sophisticated femininity, a passion for detail and a love of color and print. What began with Nicky designing and selling dresses at the Paddington markets quickly evolved into her pieces gracing the pages of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, W, Glamour, Nylon and Marie Claire. Early in its evolution, ZIMMERMANN took the bold step of fusing fashion with swimwear and presented it to the world. It immediately found its following with the fashion elite, creating a new point of reference in flattering, feminine and stylish swimwear. Working with the highly acclaimed designer and long-time collaborator, Don McQualter, ZIMMERMANN have been the recipient of multiple fashion awards including the Australian Fashion Laureate and Best Swim Designer - Prix de Marie Claire, to name a few. Nicky and Simone have also been the fashion mentor for the Qantas Spirit of Australia Youth Awards.
