Peter Morrissey's Biography

Renowned fashion designer, businessman and, entrepreneur, Peter Morrissey has been at the forefront of the Australian Fashion Industry for 25 years. From designer to businessman, Peter has successfully crossed over to mainstream appeal with his latest venture hitting the bigtime, a successful collaboration with department store BIG W, a huge hit in Australia.


Cementing his dominance in the cut throat world of fashion since 1997, his classy, chic, beautifully cut, sophisticated designs secured him as a major fashion player on the world stage. With his fashion philosophy “I want to Fashion people’s lives , not just their wardrobes”, his clothing has been worn by both female and male A-list stars including Nicole Kidman, Elle MacPherson, Helena Christensen, Jerry Hall, Dame Edna, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Megan Gale, Kylie Minogue, Jon Bon Jovi, Chris Isaac, Geoffrey Rush, Michael Hutchence and the band INXS.
Peter Morrissey's sleek designs and on trend colours and textures caught the eye of Qantas who in 2003 chose Peter to design its new staff uniforms worldwide: Qantas Business Class passengers are treated to his signature pyjamas. An ongoing campaign they have since been seen in the press on celebrities including John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, not to mention Oprah’s recent entourage who recently made their much coveted big splash on Australian shores.
Peter’s ability and credibility to capture the essence of business attire has since spread to corporations IAG, OPSM and the Novotel hotel chain. To date, Peter has designed uniforms that are worn by 67,000 employees around Australia and worldwide.
In 2009 Peter Morrissey sold his label to current owner M Webster Holdings, enabling him to graduate to other business ventures and passions, most notably his collaboration with fashion entrepreneur Bruno Schiavi. Together they joined forces with Big W to launch a new range of clothes at affordable prices called Woman By Peter Morrissey and Man By Peter Morrissey, featuring chic, classic, refined clothing, lingerie and underwear.
A survivor both in business and in life, having experienced illustrious highs and devastating lows – he was diagnosed with a brain aneurism, of which he famously survived – has made him a sought after speaker and mentor. With his optimistic approach he inspires his audiences with stories of his career experiences, challenges and personal growth.
Peter has been Ambassador for the Qantas Share the Spirit and a mentor for the Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards. He has also presented Bio Pics on Foxtel’s Biography Channel. Peter also received a multitude of awards throughout his career including GQ Man of the Year – Designer 2002, FHM Designer of the Year 2003, 2004 and 2005 and CLEO Maybelline Designer of the Year 2004.
