Old friends Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson are the designers and directors for their design partnership and business called Easton Pearson. Founded in 1989, it is based is Brisbane, Australia and has over 100 stores worldwide. They design for women who have a similar way of thinking, which is then expressed in the fabric. Their attention to detail including the beautifully handcrafted embroidery, sequinned fabrics and the texture of the fabric on the skin is a very important part of the process. Much of their inspiration comes from the love of and traditional textiles, places they have seen around the world, from old movies and characters from books. Even Easton and Pearson's personal interests are "sown" into the designs. The brand personifies women of varying cultural influences and mixed tenets and allows them the ability to express.
