Lisa & Her Philosophy

With her Australian upbringing, her education at Parsons School of Design in New York and her Eastern heritage, Lisa has embodied the best of Eastern and Western design. Her creations are a fusion of classic, Western silhouettes and innovative origami techniques with a focus on functionality, versatility and comfort.

Lisa is a firm believer that consumers shouldn’t have to be charged exorbitant amounts of money for high quality, original designs.

In the era of Made in China goods, mass market brands are releasing designs that lack quality control and originality, are made with cheap fabrics in bulk and yet still have a hefty price tag attached. Lisa’s goal is to produce garments that are of the same luxurious quality of a thousand dollar item but are available at an affordable and accessible price point.

Unlike mass market brands, Lisa and her team of specialists have the unique ability to personally hand-check every single garment before they ship to ensure that each order arrives in perfect condition. They are only able to achieve this at their boutique level with limited production batches (no more than 50-100 units of a style at a time) and Lisa’s borderline obsessive eye for detail.

She personally oversees the quality assurance process and the development of a design from start to finish. 

“A designers job isn’t finished after they conceptualise a design. It’s only finished when the stacks of fabric swatches are sorted through, when the fit is perfected, the threads are trimmed, the garment is checked and tissue wrapped and the customer is left smiling…” - Lisa Qu.
