The designers behind Bec + Bridge, Becky Cooper and Bridget Yorston met in 2000 - it was their first day at Sydney’s, University of Technology. While a Bachelor Of Arts in Fashion & Textiles was the reason the two initially crossed paths, it would seem the universe had bigger plans. ‘Bec and Bridge’ - the affectionate pseudonym coined by friends for the inseparable duo - would, just a few years later, come to represent an exciting mainstay in the Australian fashion industry.
Graduating in 2003 with first class honours, Cooper and Yorston knew what needed to happen next. Bec + Bridge was founded and, in 2004, they were invited to show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
The brand had landed in the spotlight, with leading fashion buyers placing orders for some of the country’s most premium stores, and media declaring Bec + Bridge the label to have on your ‘must have’ list. Amongst their most loyal, long standing retail partners is Australia’s leading department store, David Jones, a partner the brand has worked closely with since 2007. They also work with prestigious International partners such as Farfetch, Luisa Via Roma, Harvey Nichols and Shopbop.
