These are a few of my favourite things . . .

  • The harmony and energy of Mark Rothko's paintings - they vibrate, you can feel them.
  • The sensuality and grace of Mapplethorp's floral still lifes - like a dancer caught in motion.
  • The purity and integrity of Ando's architecture.
  • The beauty of Hepworth's sculpture - honest and tactile.
  • The curve and elegance of Eames' plywood - the movement of form.

Hi, I am Ben Smith. I am a women's wear designer based in Melbourne, Australia. My label is Anon. Women.

The collection is designed to be the building blocks of a woman's wardrobe. With careful consideration of the elements of design, fit and construction the pieces are chic and easy - flattering to the wearer. The philosophy of the collection is to make clothes that enhance and highlight the personality and style of the wearer.

In this blog I hope to give you an insight to what I do, my process, the people and things that inspire me. I will take you through the development of the collection; introduce you to the women who wear my clothes and share my world as a designer.... Enjoy
