What a year it has been for the Obus team!
. . . . . . .
I am immensely proud of what we achieved in 2O19. The environmental and social impact of our business has been front of mind more than ever, as shown by: our epic SWAP SHOP; raising almost $4OOO with Beehemia for the ASRC; running our annual Winter Coat Drive; designing an exclusive garment to raise funds for Breast Cancer research; joining you on the streets at Melbourne's Climate Marches; and committing to plant 2OO trees with 15 Trees in 2O2O!
We loved introducing you to our makers and showing you behind the scenes during Fashion Revolution Week, and we hope you loved our studio makeover (thanks to our friends at West Elm & Haymes) as much as we do! We also prioritised fabrics that are gentler on the Earth, hosted more events so we can meet you and mingle IRL, and introduced fun digital delights like #qewsdays on Instagram.
And of course, because we love to make stuff you love,we were blown away by your adoration for bestsellerslike FIVE SENSES, STARLING, WINTERGARDEN and GRANDIFLORA.
The next decade will pose many challenges as we asa business and community do our part to tackle fast fashion and the environmental emergency. We hope that you will join us in spreading the word about making better fashion choices that encompass style, longevity, sustainability – without compromising colour and fun!
Thanks, as always, for travelling with us. Here's to 5O more collections by your side.
