6 Ethical Fashion Stores You'll Find Anywhere in Australia

Being a more conscious consumer doesn't have to be hard, I promise. There are plenty of popular shops all around Australia that produce their clothing ethically and today I have covered six of the ones I am most familiar with. Even if you don't have one of these stores nearby, you can shop all of them online, so they're accessible to everyone! What better excuse do we need to go shopping than to support a good cause? That's right, there isn't one.

Bon Chance!

CUE

Widely available in most shopping centres between Myer and their own stores, Cue is listed with Ethical Clothing Australia and manufactures many items in Australia. Perfect for polished office wear and versatile minimalist pieces that work for day and night. Shop online or find your nearest store here.

VERONIKA MAINE

Veronika Maine is a division of Cue and is also listed with Ethical Clothing Australia. If you like the luxe look of Witchery or the edginess of Sportsgirl you will be a fan of this store too. They have an online store and bricks and mortar stores in these places.

REVIEW

Also listed with ECA, Review is the Queen of floral prints, circle skirts and vintage style dresses. A great ethical alternative to shops like Forever New. Like Cue, they are easy to find as they are stocked in Myer as well as individual Review boutiques. Add to Cart here or find a store here.

OXFAM

Oxfam also employs people in developing countries to create their products, helping to ease poverty. Amongst all the homewares and fair-trade chocolate (yes, please) you will find an array of handmade, recycled and sustainable jewellery. Think dyed nuts and beads made from old magazines pages. You can shop online or at any of these stores.
