Clothes with a conscious

Melbourne-based fashion label MIES is leading the Aussie charge on sustainable fashion, plus each piece is custom-made

The buzzword in fashion at the moment is sustainability and Melbourne-based label, MIES, is the name to know if you're into joining the clothes with a conscious movement. It doesn't hurt that this brand also makes each dress to order with customers able to work with the team on the design of their piece.

MIES is the brainchild of two friends Andrew Letts and Adriana Santelices who are strongly committed to limiting waste associated with clothing production, which they're achieving with their own brand thanks to their clever production model.

Dresses are on a made-to-order basis to avoid producing excess garments with three sewing dates each month (the 6th, the 16th, and the 26th). Each month the brand caps the orders at 50 to not only give their customers an exclusive, bespoke experience but also limit waste. All the dresses are designed and produced in Melbourne, and because they're made locally, no long overseas shipping times (or costs) are involved - each garment is sent out within 15 days of the sewing cycle.

How does it work? The MIES website showcases 'modular dress parts' which can be mixed and matched together by customers to create their dream dress.
