Bec + Bridge’s aesthetic is a fresh twist on styles inspired from the 70s and 90s. Catering for the modern everyday woman their effortless designs are aspirational as well as attainable.
Becky Cooper and Bridget Yorston are the duo behind the iconic Australian fashion label Bec + Bridge. The pair met at Sydney’s University of Technology while studying a Bachelor of Design. It was when they were put together for an assignment that a unique friendship bloomed. Always by each other’s side, their friends called them “Bec and Bridge” which formed the name of the brand.
Born as a denim line, it all started when a male friend asked them to revamp an old pair of jeans. Before long more and more male friends found out and requested their own pair for $100 each. They would spray, dye, distress the jeans and add their name and phone number.
In 2003 a buyer from a Gold Coast Boutique called them after reading their phone number off a pair of jeans and ordered 200 pairs. And so the label began. In 2006, they switched to a womenswear label and were approached by David Jones who stocks their label to this day.
The brand continued to grow within Australia and internationally, winning the 2010 DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship for business acumen. Within one year of operating in America, Bec + Bridge had 40 stockists and in 2011 opened a pop-up store on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
To this day
Now the brand is stocked in over 250 boutiques worldwide. Producing 95% of their pieces within Australia, they ensure strong relationships with manufacturers and focus on quality.
The best friends celebrated 15 years in the fashion industry in 2017 and opened their first Australian brick and mortar store in Bondi Junction, Sydney.
As mothers, staying close and maintaining a work-life balance can be difficult. Through the execution of effective communication they can each take reign at different times where needed.
