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.
We work along side a small team of local women in 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.
The natural fibre knits which are the signature of Orbits’ clothing are knitted to our 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 treat our Earth we are very proud to say that everyone of our garments is made from start to finish in Australia.
We maintain this so that we may tread as gently on our Earth as possible by minimising our Global footprint and are always pursuing more avenues that support this
We are part of the Slow Fashion movement and thus create small runs of our collections. Our customers love the timeless nature of our Designs as this means that they can be worn for many seasons. Minimally dyed with less waste and the introduction in 2018 of the new Compost Bag on all Australian orders to minimise our impact on the environment.
