Lauren + Angie was born out of love for sewing and creating quality garments you love, cherish and appreciate for years.
Living by the words ‘slow is best’, we rebel against fast fashion and strive towards creating simple, classic garments as sustainably as possible.

All Lauren + Angie pieces are handmade by owner Lauren in our home studio in Geelong, Victoria. As all garments are made in house, we can keep the quality level high and work with small runs, making your piece extra special. Focusing on using natural fibres within designs we aim to bring the love back to clothes, that handmade human connection so much of the fashion industry has lost.

Working on a made to order process opens up the opportunity to customise your garment. If there is a piece you love but feel the length isn’t quite right, we can alter that, love a dress but prefer it in another colour we have available that can be arranged as well. We are all about creating something you will love to wear for years to come.

From Lauren – ‘Thank you for stumbling across my little business and I hope you find something to fall in love with.’

*Please note any customisation requests are assessed on a case-by-case bases and may not be achievable. Although we offer a customisable option, we still aim to keep the Lauren + Angie styles on brand.

Our Practices

All of our designs are made from our home studio. We don’t make huge amounts of stock at any one time, usually a few of each style in different sizes (some designs, usually those made with a more exclusive fabric are made as orders come in). By only doing small runs we can control the amount of stock we have on hand and ensure that we don’t have a lot of excess stock. This also allows us to keep more fabric on the roll rather than as garment and be able to potentially use that unused fabric in new collections.
Our colour palettes tend to use a lot of the same base colours; this allows us to carry over any unused fabric to the next collection, limiting the amount of wasted fabric. We introduce new colours into each season as limited pieces, generally in our more expensive fabrics.


All the organic cotton we use is accredited with ACO (Australian Certified Organic) as well as GOTS certified. The cotton is grown in India on Organic cotton farms; there are no pesticides, genetically modified seeds or synthetic fertilisers used. The fibre is knitted into fabric in Melbourne, Australia.
Other fabric we use such as linen is already a highly eco – friendly fabric. We only use flax linen as this is the true linen fibre (no blends or chemically treated – such as starching), it is a crop that requires very little pest controlling chemicals and water to grow. The entire plant can be used for various products leaving no waste. It is recyclable and biodegradable. All round it’s a pretty amazing fibre and we love Linen.
We always use natural fibres, (the only exception to this is our winter jackets we create each year do have a little polyester in them but never more than 20% of the fabric) natural fibres will biodegrade if thrown away, were a polyester won’t (for a very long time). We try to think about all stages of a garments life.
Another fabric we use is dead stock fabric. We love this option as you get what you can find; often there isn’t a lot of a particular fabric available so it makes a style more exclusive. Using a fabric that no one wants anymore and stopping it going to landfill by turning into something someone can love and treasure is a good feeling.
We are continually looking at new developments in fabrics, fabric suppliers with accreditations and anywhere that we can lessen our impact on the environment with the fabrics we use. It’s a learning experience for everyone involved.

Scrap Fabrics

Currently we are working on creating designs with more focus on a zero waste philosophy. Meaning we create as little scrap fabric (preferably zero) when cutting out our pattern pieces. This isn’t the simplest of tasks but we are working hard towards achieving our zero waste goal.
All the scrap fabric we do create we keep, always looking for ways to reuse them/create something new with them.
