ORBIT THE LABEL is the creation of Lou Doherty, who started the label 20 plus years ago. A completely self taught designer, maker and hand-dyer. She has cultivated and expanded her craft and grown her boutique fashion label into what it is today.
Nature is a never-ending source of inspiration, along with her gorgeous three children. Lou's colourful life and a deep reverence for our planet Earth have been the inspiration for her beautiful creations.
Working along side her is a small team of local women from the Northern Rivers of NSW who sew quality made garments in the comfort of their own homes and who are Orbit The Label's family.
Once the garments are sewn Lou uses her dying skills to bring each garment to life with an array of beautiful hues
The natural fibre knits which are the signature of Orbits’ clothing are knitted to her specifications in Australia. Orbit is in continual conversation with the manufactures to ensure that the quality and uniqueness of these fabrics is of a high standard and variety, holding true to the slow fashion movement practices.
At a time where we all need to be more conscious of the way we tread on our Mother Earth she holds true to minimising Orbits global footprint by every garment being made from start to finish in Australia
Orbit is part of the Slow Fashion movement and thus creates small runs for their collections.Customers love the timeless nature of the Designs as this means that they can be worn for many seasons.
