MNDATORY is an independent Australian designer menswear brand that specialises in outerwear and tailoring; building on men’s wardrobe fundamentals through a unique transformative design approach. Born and raised in Melbourne, Brian Huynh is the founder and Creative Director of MNDATORY.

Drawing inspiration from his own personal life experiences and the design philosophies of architect Louis Kahn, Brian believes that good design is about honouring materials and understanding that every fabric has a story to tell. Since launching in 2016, MNDATORY has been named a finalist for the National Designer Award at VAMFF on two consecutive occasions; and in 2019 became a winner of the St.George NextGen prize as part of MBFWA.

MNDATORY will be showcasing in Studio Edit 2 and Runway 5
