The Dress Collective Australian Design

We are so proud to say that we have a fabulous new online retailer The Dress Collective. who specialise in representing all Australian Made design.

A little More about them below:

The Dress Collective is the only e-boutique that sells 100% Australian made fashion and accessories. We're transparent about the garment lifecycle too, which is why you'll find each designer's story attached to every single garment we sell; where each garment is designed and where and how each garment is made is important information, and we want to share it with you. 

Our ethos is simple: to create a liberal and dynamic future for Australian fashion. By promoting ‘slow fashion’, Australian made fashion, and ethically and sustainably created fashion, we’re ensuring a future for our own industries. We want to create a market that our Australian fashion designers can thrive in, instead of struggle in. 

We're more than just an online shop for Australian designers though; we're a support network and creative foundation, built on a vision of positive and sustainable growth for the future of the Australian fashion industry. We’re not so much focussed on trends or seasonal collections from our designers, because it can sometimes create the ideal of ‘past season’ or ‘out of fashion’.

We’d rather help you make long-term decisions about your wardrobe, and help you spend more on higher quality, longer lasting items of clothing. 

The Dress Collective's range of fashion designers and independent labels embody the Australian fashion identity, an identity that is innovative and unique. We believe in quality over quantity, so all of our designers ethically and sustainably produce their collections locally in Australia.

67.5 million tonnes of clothing is made and released into the world every single year, and Australia’s contribution to the world’s 'fast fashion' problem is sending over $500 million dollars of fashion clothing to the tip annually. To combat this environmental issue, The Dress Collective promotes 'slow fashion', so you can shop online with a clear conscience knowing that you're making a difference. Most of our Australian fashion labels produce small run collections or 'make to order', which means they are actively reducing production waste and fashion pollution.
