The swimwear brand was founded by Liandra Gaykamangu, a Yolngu woman from East Arnhem Land.

Her designs have evolved from just swimwear to also include resort wear. Compared to her previous collection, Gaykamangu was inspired by a brighter more vivid colour palette.

Models walked the runway in her designs alongside woven accessories such as necklaces and bags.
