With a flight time of just 6 hours from Sydney, Bali continues to be a hugely popular and very easy tropical getaway that Australians have been taking advantage of for years. Over the last few years, a number of Australian fashion designers have been making the trip to design and manufacture their lines (and often open boutiques or their factories to the public.) Designers such as Ebony Eagles from Ebony Eve, Jessie White from Shakuhachi, Natasha Welsh from Natasha, Georgia Hall from State of Georgia and Alice McCall have all based themselves there at some point and it's clear the island culture has influenced their beautiful designs. If you're heading over there - make sure you also check out C Boutique for some incredible swimwear, SKS for eclectic clothing and jewellery and Magali Pascali for stunning dresses. We've heard great things about the food & cocktails at Potato Head Beach Club too. With great shopping spots, beautiful hotels and spas, the tropical climate and incredible food, it's easy to see why these Aussie designers have made the move!
