We're a fashion label with a difference; founded with the purpose of supporting refugee and new migrant women to kick-start their Australian careers.
Fashion for Good
The Social Outfit is a sustainable fashion brand in Australia. Our ethical fashion is made by refugees and is made in Sydney, right in our local Marrickville workroom. We create environmental clothes that are bright, bold and fun fashion statements. Our clothes empower women, from the women who made them to the women who wear them.
AS SEEN ON:
"Absolutely outstanding creations with a unique touch, and in support of such a wonderful cause."
"Amazing ethical fashion store with great designs - and an antidote to the fast fashion fad. Love this place."
"Stylish, sustainable fashion and accessories that provide an income for our communities… Everyone’s a winner, the client, the earth and the creators."
REASONS YOU'LL LOVE YOUR SOCIAL OUTFIT:
The Magic Happens Upstairs.
Crafted for you in our Newtown workroom using mostly donated fabrics saved from landfill. That's as sustainable and local as it gets.
We celebrate diversity.
Our diverse sewing team hand constructs each garment, meaning there are slight variations: making each item as unique as you are.
Everyone's a winner!
Every dollar you spend with us goes back into our employment and training programs for refugees and new migrants.
THE SOCIAL OUTFIT'S RETAIL TRAINING PROGRAM
Our Retail Training Program is a work-readiness and employment pathway program for young refugee and new migrant women seeking their first Australian job.
"This is what a 'triple point score' looks like - economic, environmental and social/cultural resilience. This is what 'good' looks like and is ripe to be replicated and scaled."
Jess Miller, Councillor, City of Sydney
