Australian Fashion Labels is a genuine business success story. It's now a company with multiple fashion brands, 1700 stockists, operations in Australia, the US and China, 140 employees and revenue of $60 Million. 

We talk to AFL’s Adelaide-based founders, Melanie and Dean Flintoft, who sold everything and started the business from their lounge room, with an unwavering confidence in their innovative business model and an appetite for risk.  

We hear about the enormous complexities of their world, from cash flow, through to design, the supply chain and the challenge of entering new countries with different cultures, behaviours and trends.

We also talk about what has triggered the company’s growth, and how celebrities like Nicole Richie and Solange Knowles came to wear their brands.
