C O R E basics was born from a love of a minimalist, functional and modern style. Like so many beautiful things in life, it all started with a lightbulb moment.
I've worked at all levels of the fashion industry for the last 15 years. A little over a year ago I was shopping for the presenters of well-known TV show. I was looking for that 'perfect' item but I couldn’t find anything that was distinctive and timeless but not showy. Not only was I unable to find the right piece, I couldn't even find something that was close to what I needed.
That was when the lightbulb switched on. I need to make it myself.
I say a lightbulb went on, but really the idea arose out of my deep experience in the fashion game. I’ve dressed artists for red carpet events and I have styled celebrities for photo shoots. I’ve been retained as a personal stylist for entertainers and I've run my own styling agency. I've also dressed gold Logie winners for a major television network.
It was all that work which led me to a life-changing realisation: there is a gap in the market for limited edition collections of handbags that use only quality fabrics and leathers, which are unique with a minimal style and functional in design.
C O R E basics was born.
Fashion has always been an important part of my life and launching my own business was the next step in my fashion journey. With C O R E basics I have dedicated myself to creating pieces that will become core to your life.
Their classic, minimal style won’t date, and the high-quality design and materials ensure they won’t end up in landfill. In fact, if you price them per wear they are cheaper than the fast fashion alternative, which will just end up in landfill. You'll also love using them in a variety of situations.
I know you will cherish your C O R E basics piece. I can't wait for you to become part of our community!
