REDDS Riders are our brand ambassadors and who we have our eyes on to represent youth culture. They have a distinct take and specific kind of influence on music, fashion, art, and design.

 

We got to know some of our favourite Australian fashion designers. Hailing from all over the country, these young bloods aren’t afraid to create apparel that’s a little outside the box.

 

Find out who they are, what their brand is, when is their next collection drop, and what’s in their red cup. Let’s ride.

 

 

Millie Ng

Millie is based in Melbourne and is ½ of Australian streetwear label Purgatory. She studies Performance and Graphic Design at The University of Melbourne, has worked in the independent film industry, and currently does freelance digital design for start-up businesses. On the side, she also enjoys shopping second-hand, sushi trains and walking her cat.

 

Purgatory aims to bridge the gap between high fashion, affordability and sustainability. Founded in 2017, the label has collaborated with creatives all over in the Australian streetwear scene, and has been featured in GQ Australia, Vanity Fair and Wired Magazine.

 

This November, Purgatory is doing their first restock of its Original Trefoil Logo
T Shirt, their signature design that has been sold out worldwide since its first
release. Keep your eyes peeled in 2020 for more drops, including bags, jewellery and custom pieces.

Harry is obsessed with all things fashion, and everything salt and vinegar flavoured. The other half of Purgatory, he is currently studying a Bachelor of Fashion Design Honours at RMIT University. His biggest goal in life is to become the next Walt Disney with the body of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

 

ICYMI, we linked up with Harry and Millie for the KAWS: Companionship In The Age of Loneliness exhibition in Melbourne. Celebrating one of the biggest contemporary artists of our generation, the exhibition showcases over 100 of his works, including a 22 foot bronze statue. Get a glimpse of the exhibition through Harry and Millie’s eyes here.
