Kath Purkis, Le Black BookLe Black Book

From stylists to members of the press, Aussie designers and international buyers, I met so many people during Australian Fashion Week a few months back. One of the chica people I saw at the tents is Kath Purkis. It was only until I got back home when we emailed each other that I found out she developed a luxury online store called Le Black Book.

Prior to starting Le Black Book, Kath worked for Akira Isogawa who is one of Australia’s leading designers.

I visited their site several times and they have a very interesting selection of merchandise from designers such as Kirrily Johnston (who I’ve also met and I *love*), Anna & Boy, Natasha, Fleur Wood, Daniel Avakian, Jessie Hill, Shakuhachi and more. Even Thai trio Stretsis are also represented. I think they’re a great addition to the online shopping industry. In this day and age where personal style rocks more than anything, shopping overseas (ie Australia) for pieces you can’t get elsewhere is fun.

Le Black Book ships worldwide and if you live in Sydney and nearby suburbs, same day delivery is also available.
