H&B was founded by Kerry Buckley and Stephan Cornips in 2000. H&B was established to take over the distribution & agency of Italian fashion brands previously marketed by GFT Australia P/L, a wholly owned subsidiary of the now defunct fashion powerhouse GFT SpA. At the same time H&B took on the distribution for Cerruti sportswear. H & B has continued to source exciting new premium men's & women's fashion labels and now markets some of Europe's & USA's best known labels to department stores and specialty boutiques throughout Australia and New Zealand.
H&B has built a solid in house team that manages the distribution effort. A
strong network of agents throughout Australia & New Zealand complement our own in house sales & marketing group.
The mission of HB Fashion Distributors (H&B) is to be a distributor of premium fashion brands into the Australian/New Zealand market. Our aim is to work closely with suppliers, agents & clients to build brands and ensure long term success.
As a successful distributor we provide our clients with a much needed product offering that gives them an uncomplicated delivery of imported brands. This offering, coupled with personalized service, differentiates us in a highly competitive but often neglected and under-serviced market.
