Cotton On’s story starts in the late eighties – the glorious age of lycra and leg warmers – when the founder of Cotton On, Nigel Austin, was 18. As a youth, he’d learned about the manufacturing and importing business from his father in Hong Kong, where his family had links to the always necessary rag trade. Armed with nothing but a pile of highly fashionable acid wash sample jackets entrepreneurial young Nigel Austin took to the streets of Beckley Market in Geelong and established a little shop to sell his wares.
Success didn’t come easily, however, as while he had plenty of lookers he had no takers. He persevered despite his lack of profit and decided to talk to his father for some advice, and the advice must’ve been pretty good because Nigel Austin went on to have a eureka moment and promptly returned to Becker Market with a plan. He used the same concept acid wash jackets but this time he sold them for lower prices. Luckily for him, and for the rest of the fashion world, he sold out instantly, kickstarting the rest of his career.
In 1992 he was joined by his cousin, Ashley Hardwick, during his first year out of school, and the two of them still co-own the company to this day.
