Role Overview


UMENCO is recruiting a directional Fashion Designer for an iconic Australian fashion brand, founded in appreciation of considered design and refined simplicity.

The talent we seek will have an innate and refined breadth of knowledge across contemporary RTW women’s fashion, with an exceptional understanding of quality garment construction and materials, complemented by an awareness of the global fashion and trend landscape.

Creating as part of this established brand’s RTW offering, the Fashion Designer will be significantly involved in the conceptual design development of collections across categories.

They will work with design leadership to interpret and develop key conceptual ideas in innovative, directional, and commercial ways, upholding the integrity and high-quality execution of the brand while exploring opportunities for innovation and expansion.

Across all of their output, they will share and uphold the brand’s commitment to quality craftsmanship and sustainable design and construction.

The successful talent will have a fashion design degree and proven experience in a similar role, with the demonstrated ability to recontextualize trends to create authentic, aligned collections that feel as much a reflection of the zeitgeist as they do of the brand’s design legacy.

They will possess strong organisational, time management, and problem-solving skills and attention to detail, working efficiently under pressure in a shifting and collaborative environment.

They will be a creative thinker with an inherent awareness of key trends, the ability to sketch and draw flats as well as proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Microsoft Excel.
