Par Moi

Born in defiance of fast fashion, and launched in early 2019 by Ashiya Omundsen, Par Moi’s ethos is to create pieces that last beyond traditional ‘seasons’ out of deadstock fabrics. With no collections, each piece is intended to stand alone to discourage mass, multi-seasonal consumption. Directly translating to ‘By Me’, each piece is made-to-order, designed, drafted, cut and sewn from deadstock fabric by Ashiya and friends in Melbourne. This model ensures waste is kept to a minimum.


Esse has been paving the way for the slow and sustainable fashion movement since 2017 and was born out of a desire to redefine the way they approach fashion, inspiring them to consider their garment’s purpose and lifecycle. A conscious fashion brand that is constantly moving the needle forward, Esse merges timeless designs with a traceable supply chain that champions environmental and social responsibility, striving to create positive change in the fashion industry.
