With Australian Fashion Week in full swing in Sydney, the country's burgeoning design scene is in the spotlight. While you're coveting the new collections that walk down the runway — from asymmetrical, luxury sport looks by Ginger & Smart to romantic silhouettes and bondage-inspired jewelry by Toni Maticevski — don't forget that many of these designers run e-boutiques that ship directly to the U.S.

To make shopping current collections a little easier, we pulled together 21 of our favorite Australian brands with suggestions for what to shop now.
