You Need To Know Designer-Joshua "Josh" Goot.

Joshua "Josh" Goot (born January 1980) is an Australian fashion designer. He attended Moriah College in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.

As a designer he embarked on his self-titled venture in 2004 before his debut collection in 2005. He followed this up with winning the 2005 Tiffany & Co Young Designer of the Year Award.

In May 2007 it was announced that Goot would design a capsule collection for Target Australia.It was announced that the range would be released in June the same year. He was the first Australian to design a solo collection for the budget chainstore, following Stella McCartney. Goot's range was considerably less hyped and received little media attention. The collection showed his minimalist aesthetic and was made of a merino wool blend in black, grey marle, green and blue.

Born in Sydney in 1980, Josh Goot began a Media Art & Production degree at Sydney’s University of Technology in 1999. Spending time in New York later that year, Josh decided that his interest in media and communication would manifest through fashion design.

In late 2004, his eponymous label was born. The first season explored the idea of tailored comfort. It introduced fusion, a modern attitude, ease and simplicity as core values. Wardrobe essentials were crafted from 100% cotton jersey in signature shades of grey marl and silver.

In April 2005, Josh’s debut collection won him the Tiffany & Co. Young Designer of the Year Award in Australia.Judges were impressed by the clever concept, clean aesthetic and the future smart ideology conveyed in the line. The following season saw a marked evolution in the look and established Goot as a new force in Australian fashion.

International interest followed. Josh returned to New York and was fortunate to meet Stella Ishii and began working with The News press and sales office. In July 2005, the label featured on the cover of Women's Wear Daily.
