If you, like many Australians, are trying to buy more locally made products, you may have the fashion department a bit challenging. Despite the appetite for Australian-made clothing growing by the day, we are all too aware of how scarce those labels are. The fact is, local production doesn’t just cost more, it costs a lot more. And rightly so because we proudly have a fair wage system and a high quality of living that must meet those standards. So if you want to put your money where your mouth is, be willing to pony up the dosh for quality clothing that is produced here and supports Aussie jobs. It may just mean a shift in buying behaviour and shopping less often but it is possible on most budgets.
We’ve presented, in alphabetical order, a list of true blue fashion retailers. Please note below, we’ve detailed that some retailers have Australian-made lines within a broader range and others are entirely locally produced. We very much encourage you to comment with any additions we may have missed as we will be constantly updating this resource.
