It’s fashion revolution week, a global movement asking for transparency in the fashion industry and a reminder to ask ‘who made my clothes?’
The provenance of things has always been important in our stock selection and this extends to our recent foray into fashion.
In addition to being mindful of the maker and the origin/composition of the fabric, we have endeavored to address value and sustainability by measuring the cost per wear of each item of clothing. This means that by ensuring the design is a timeless one, the garment might become a wardrobe staple for decades; not defined or made redundant by seasonal trends.
Timeless doesn’t mean boring or uninteresting. It usually does mean clever and is always considered.
This is best demonstrated by the work of Brisbane designer Nelson Molloy whose pieces we proudly stock. Regularly, customers share their stories of the 20 year old NM garments they are still wearing and still receiving compliments on.
Along with this dynamic range, you can also find the beautiful baltic linen range of Seaside Tones in store, LJC Designs and Est 1971 windies: http://onegirlstudio.com.au/product-category/clothing/
