Hey folks - Kylie here! On behalf of the whole Obus team in the studio and in our stores, I’d like to say thanks again to you for supporting us this year.
. . . . . . .
As a small team who put their hearts into each new Obus product, we’re always delighted when the response to a new print or style is so positive. 2017 was the year of the Thistle Dress (the only time we’ve ever reprinted due to overwhelming demand!); four stunning collections; three huge Vogue Online Shopping Nights; relaunching our blog; and tallying your votes to decide which prints from the Obus archive will be revived in the new year.

With your help, this year we also collected hundreds of donations during our Brotherhood of St Laurence Winter Clothing Drive; donated much-needed feminine products to women in need through our collaboration with Tsuno; and helped our friends at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre with fabric and sewing machines for their Women’s Empowerment Group.
Next year is our 20th year in business - we have lots of special things planned and we will continue to build on our commitment to local manufacturing and supporting our community. But for now, we’re all looking forward to a much-needed break, spending good times with family & friends and soaking up the summer sun!
Thanks for travelling with Obus!
