This community knows how to show its support for small businesses doing it tough. We’ve helped out our rural and regional sisters in the #shopitforward campaign. And we’ve stood behind our fellow Australian-made fashion labels during these crazy COVID times. Now, I’m asking you to again consider where you shop for your clothes – please support these Victorian online businesses below.
I have no current affiliation with any of them – except for being a happy customer and long-time supporter of some of list – but I have a tonne of empathy for the small teams behind these businesses as they work to stay in business with the added difficulty of being in lockdown.
I can’t stress how tough it’s been for independent fashion businesses this year and I want you to know that when you choose to spend your money with a small business, it really does go a long way. You’re not just an order number; you’re a person who that business cares about.
The below list is just a small sample – put together from a shout-out on Instagram last week – but it’s a great reference point if you’re looking to treat yourself as we head into the new season.
And if you’re not in a position to shop right now, click on each business’ Instagram page, follow, give them a like or three and leave a comment. It really will make their day/week/lockdown situation feel just that bit lighter.
