Founded in 1987 by Christine and Les Doughty, Et Al has since cultivated a reputation for their unique signature aesthetic of relaxed tailoring worked back with the fluidity of soft drapery. Et Al manages to find the balance of cutting-edge designs with extremely wearable garments with a focus on refined workmanship and quality fabrication.
In 2008, Et Al introduced designer Anthony Capon to the label Winner of television phenomenon Project Runway Australia Season 2 and the prestigious Emirates Melbourne Cup Design Award in 2010 and 2014. His innovative androgynous designs and bespoke creations have built a cult following by enthusiasts globally.
The success of Doughty and Capon's collaboration is evident as Et Al continues to push their creativity by producing statement pieces with construction challenges, subtle yet well-considered detailing and garment wash treatments.
With an androgynous touch to their designs and following from the success of the Women's wear Collections, it was a natural progression for Et Al to launch its Menswear range due to a demand from their male clients in 2013.
In 2017, Et Al had the privilege to collaborate with celebrity chef Shannon Bennett to design the Vue De Monde staff wardrobe.
