Grace's Story

"It's a simple concept. That we can be inspired by nature without taking from it."

 

As a vegan and a mother, this is a belief I feel passionately about.


My story started back in my birthplace of Hong Kong, where I grew up playing dress up dolls, watching my mom sew her own clothes and developing an enduring joy for fashion.

Fast forward to five years ago, I had moved into a lead creative role for an online fashion app, crafting styles and trend directions for production.

I loved the work but once I moved to Melbourne and turned vegan for the animals and planet, I was inspired to try out a new path. To attempt to create my own designs and build my own label from the ground up. One with purpose.

 

I'll be honest - the early days were challenging, full of setbacks and frustrations, but after a tough first year we got through them and Kinds of Grace was born.

  • My goal, together with my amazing collaborators is to show that handbags and goods can be luxurious and vibrant, full of color and life, without harming animals.

 

 

  • These vegan materials have a far smaller environmental footprint than animal skins, including our new collection with Piñatex, made from pineapple leaf fibres.

 

I'm proud to run a PETA certified label, to stand against sweatshop and child labour, and give back 20% of all profits to protect animals and the planet. Every purchase supports our mission.

 

Thank you for joining this movement for glamour that's kinder to all.

Yours truly,

Founder & Chief Designer
