Young Republic, empowering Aussie designers.

Young Republic is Australia’s first interactive marketplace that allows stylish, sophisticated and eco-conscious shoppers the opportunity to browse across thousands of products, from multiple categories, using just one checkout.

Since their Beta Launch on May 2nd 2011, Young Republic is successfully empowering emerging Australian designers. Through traditional media coverage and online exposure, Young Republic is continuously showcasing local design-talent on the global stage.

With no signing, joining or listing fees Young Republic allows designers to sell their product direct to the public 24/7. As the manufacturer, supplier, distributor and manager of their very own store, there’s no need to calculate overheads and charge at an inflated price. With over 1000 products available from 150 designers including Das Monk, Jimmi Paige, Milkwood & Snowfawn, this unique purchasing environment allows upcoming talents to pass the savings onto the consumer.

Founders Andrew Yang & Marianne Sea are the online-marketing and design experts behind the Young Republic vision. Having featured in Anthill’s Smart 100, 30 under 30 & BRW’s Fast Starters, both Marianne and Andrew understand their unique support network of public relations experts, marketing strategists, graphic designers, photographers and stylists is essential for the progression of small- scale businesses.

Fashion lovers, style-seekers and design enthusiasts, come and browse Young Republic’s edgy, new selection of Australian men’s, women’s and children’s fashion, accessories, homewares and art.
