Emerging bespoke women's clothing label, So Stella, is one of the latest Australian fashion brands to become accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia.

The Orange, NSW based fashion business, which offers customers handmade as well as tailor made services, has developed from a business model that has kept a social conscience and integrity at its core.

The label was founded in 2004 by Michelle Kent; a designer and maker who is passionate about ethical manufacturing and treating people fairly.

“While it may cost more to hand-make my garments, I am proud to offer my customers something unique and of a high quality.

“I believe we're entering a new era of fashion, where people are more interested in how garments are made and by whom, and I'm really pleased to be part of this movement”, Ms Kent said.

So Stella recently completed Ethical Clothing Australia's accreditation process and gained their certification; a program that assists the local textile, clothing and footwear industry ensure Australian workers receive fair wages and decent conditions.

Ethical Clothing Australia's national manager, Simon McRae, congratulated So Stella on their accreditation and said it was terrific to see a young fashion designer with such an integral focus on how their garments are made.

“Across the board we're seeing a growing interest in provenance and how products are made, particularly if you consider how this has taken off in the food industry. It appears there is also a growing trend in the fashion industry for consumers to become more aware of how their clothing has been made and under what kind of conditions”, Mr McRae said.

All So Stella pieces are designed and made in Orange for women looking for something unique and exclusive, and who appreciate fine craftsmanship and beautiful fabrics.

So Stella is a handmade fashion label, designed for women looking for something unique and exclusive, who appreciate fine craftsmanship and beautiful fabrics. All garments are ethically handmade in Australia with love and only a few in each size are made, and are available exclusively online.
