The Country Road Success Story
As an iconic Australian brand, Country Road is a name many Aussies know and trust. But where did Country Road come from? Back in 1974, Stephen Bennett founded Country Road in Melbourne, deciding to join the denim boom that changed the face of fashion in the 70s. But no, he didn’t start with denim. He started with the pure cotton shirt, an item that has now become a Country Road icon.
Into the 80s, and Country Road began its expansion. The brand launched its CO-OP range to appeal to the younger market, and then expanded into menswear, suits and sportswear. After that, Country Road went international, opening its first store in New Zealand, and expanding into the United States. Country Road saw success at home and overseas, taking home numerous awards. In Australia, the brand was even inducted into the Fashion Industries of Australia Hall of Fame for Consistent Excellent Design Performance. Into the 90s, and Country Road established itself as Australia’s first lifestyle brand, offering stylish and relaxed, quality apparel, accessories and homewares. From there to today, Country Road continued to expand, continued to win awards and continued to grow in the hearts of Australians everywhere.
