Our Story

The Slow Fashion Studio breaks the cycle of fast fashion by producing consciously created garments made to order. Our design philosophy is to produce well tailored pieces that will remain in your wardrobe for years to come.

My mum taught me to sew when I was 10 years old, my wardrobe has always consisted of ‘me made’ or ‘mum made’ garments.  In 2017, I decided to completely step off the commercial, fast fashion conveyor belt and only wear clothes I had made for myself. People are always delighted when I answer  questions about where I purchased a piece of clothing with ‘I made it’.

I know that not everyone has the skills or inclination to make their own clothes. The Slow Fashion Studio is my way of helping to create a sustainable fashion future - a made-to-order collection where, instead of carrying stock, each item is hand made according to what the customer orders. Limited edition pieces are created by selecting from local, dead stock and end of line fabrics.

All of our garments are designed and made in our Melbourne studio.
