About The Fashion Catalyst

Our Story

The Fashion Catalyst was established in 2009 in Perth, Western Australia. Our founder, Vicky Sofield, set out to showcase Australian designers and brands to the world. Having shortly become an internationally recognised premier fashion website that solidified strong connections with iconic fashion houses, designers and brands across the globe. More recently, in 2018, we discovered that our international community wanted more. So we listened and implemented a shopping platform that allows them to shop a multitude of iconic Australian and international brands all on the one platform.


To be the no.1 global fashion destination that inspires our community to live their best life possible. One where you can shop, style and become inspired all on the one website.
