About Pip Edwards
Pip’s creative force, business instinct and deep knowledge of the arts lead to an inevitable course-shift from a Bachelor of Commerce & Law and corporate beginning with PwC, into the fashion industry – becoming integral to the success of some of Australia’s most iconic brands, including Ksubi, sass & bide and General Pants Co.
At the helm of P.E Nation alongside co-founder, business partner and friend Claire Tregoning, Pip lives and breathe every aspect of the brand. Her creative direction, styling and design expertise, combined with sharpness in trend forecasting, have seen the semi-eponymous label shift from a Sydney-based start-up in 2016 to global cult status; an evolution highlighted by the brand’s collaboration with H&M in 2020 – the first Australian fashion house ever partnered by the Swedish retail giant.
Pip’s finely honed commercial marketing intuition and brand building expertise are reflected in the exponential growth the label has accomplished so far, with P.E Nation shipping to 95 countries just five years since inception.
Pip merges her vast experience of the structure and processes of the business, creative skill and her widely admired style acumen with a clear understanding of and connection with her customer; cohering brand with real-life needs and desires to ensure P.E Nation continuously delivers fashion-forward, boundary-pushing and performance-driven solutions to men and women navigating fast, modern, multi-faceted lives.
