Most Australian designers try their luck in Sydney before heading overseas. Nicholas Morley has done it the other way around—but then he doesn’t boast your typical fashion pedigree. A hairstylist-turned–streetwear designer, Morley launched his first label, Buddhist Punk, in London in 1999 while based on the Indonesian island of Bali.
He’s still Bali-based, but after eventually splitting with his backers and ending a 10-month stint as creative director of Australian surf-urban label Mambo, Morley’s latest venture is Nicholas X Morley.
