Australian made fashion label Catherine Murphy has built up a following of fellow naturale girls, women who want the feeling of earthy fibres against their skin, clothes imbued with love rather than mass production and colours inspired by nature rather than the latest fashion shade.
We purposefully make all of our garments in Melbourne, Australia using locally retained skills, available materials and industry networks – some now in their third decade of mutual sharing. During the first 15 years of Catherine’s career, manufacturing outside of Australia was unheard of and the need to import fabrications and trims rare. All of these years later, we work creatively within the limitations of a much-diminished industry, holding all of our production nearby.
As we expect our clothes to be relevant for decades, quality is paramount. Working with carefully selected local manufacturing houses we can keep our quality promises and oversee the entire process in real life. Every sample is made and developed in-house and smaller production runs are completed internally.
