OUR STORY

 

 

With luxe, effortless shapes, Girl and the Sun takes that magic feeling that you have on holidays and injects it into your every day wardrobe. Our dreamy range of dresses, cosy knit jumpers and two piece sets are sure to evoke the feeling of being away even while at home. A strong ethos of escapism feeds into a carefree spirit and laid back sensibility born of our proximity to the beach in Australia. Floaty fabrics finished with delicate trims offer styles that can be carried from salty beach days to impromptu adventures and dressed up for those balmy summer nights!

 

Girl and the Sun was started in 2015 when I saw the need for beautiful and accessible destination styles at an affordable price point. I wanted to create a brand for all women that showcased neutral tones, capturing the feeling of a destination holiday even while at home. After 16 years of working in the fashion industry, it was also about creating something that I couldn't really buy for myself anywhere else.

My goal for Girl and the Sun was always to create a meaningful and intentional brand. We strive to produce quality products that can be worn for many years with a message of inclusivity and freedom. We are continually working to improve all elements of the brand with a focus on sustainability and environmental impact and look forward to expanding the Girl and the Sun sisterhood across New Zealand, the USA and Europe.

 

   

 

As a small business, we rely on you – our sisterhood – to allow us to do what we love every day! The support of our amazing customer base has inspired us to give back and we are dedicated to supporting charities that are close to our hearts. We donate $1 of every sale made to a charity making a difference in the world. Charities we have contributed to in the past include Jeans for Genes, Yalari, One Girl, The Go Foundation, Thread Together, the Australian Red Cross and Wires Wildlife Rescue. Our in-house team also makes time to donate blood on a regular basis. Together with your help, we are proof that even a small business can give back and make a big difference!

 

This year, Girl and the Sun is focusing on the little changes we can make with an emphasis on sustainability. We are committed to limiting our social and environmental impacts through choosing lower impact materials in our product and order packaging. Your online orders are also shipped in compostable postage satchels, wrapped in eco-friendly recycled tissue paper and all Girl and the Sun marketing materials are also printed on Envirocare 100% recycled paper stock. We will continue to work towards improving our in-house practices to reduce our carbon footprint.
