Inside The Factory of an Australian Ethical Fashion Label
Danielle Larkin and Kelly Tickle began their careers in interior design and real estate and now the passionate duo are building an activewear empire together.
Their Brisbane based fashion label D+K, is shattering misconceptions about the ethical fashion industry and showing the world that ethical, Australian made clothing can be stylish and affordable.
The Ethical Clothing Australia accredited company is a mere three months old, but it’s making a big impact on the activewear and athleisure scene with it’s luxe, high performance fabrics and wearable designs.
Having owned quite a few pieces from D+K’s sister label Yogiic, I can attest to the quality and performance of their clothing. There’s nothing worse than bending over in workout tights and having your undies shine through!
Kelly, a runner herself, assures that every pair of tights they produce pass the “squat test”.
They’re also affordable, with the clothing being on par price wise (but better quality) with brands such as Lorna Jane and Nike. The key difference being how their clothing is produced.
Dave and I stopped by the D+K headquarters and factory last week and Danielle and Kelly showed us around their beautiful space so we could see where all the magic happens!
