We Are Handsome, Bec & Bridge, Haryono Setiadi (formerly An Ode to No One) sound familiar? All of them got a leg up in the fashion business by winning a DHL Fashion Export Scholarship, setting them up for international success. Check out the 2013 finalists!

Lui Hon

First up, Lui Hon from Melbourne. Lui is a Malaysian-born graduate of Fashion Design at RMIT. Does he look familiar? Lui was a contestant on the first series of Project Runway Australia and gained attention for his sleek and classic design sense - in line with his philosophy that fashion should be timeless and functional. Lui's full collection can be found here

West 14th

Next up is West 14th, from Sydney. Designer Violeta Tentomas was formerly a buyer for Ralph Lauren before she decided to take the leap into creating her own collection, which has a primary focus on leather – the inspiration being timeless pieces with a twist that will make the wearer feel confident and empowered. Kahlo's full collection can be found here
