Here in the great land Down Under, we’ve been wearing thongs for years and years, so much so that they’ve become a fashion staple.
Unfortunately, the whole world wasn’t catching on to the fair dinkum trend.. until now.
That’s right, thongs have taken their rightful place in the high fashion world, making their debut at New York Fashion Week and also on the feet of some high profile Instagram influencers.
We first noticed they were popping on to the world’s radar at Copenhagen Fashion Week last month.
As you can see from these very whimsical and classy pictures, thongs can be trés sophisticated.
Now, Dion Lee has whipped out these bad boys at NYFW, with models strutting down the runway in the controversial trend that we very much approve of.
Tibi also took to the runway with thongs...
This trend was ours first.
