Like so many other eco businesses, it was the birth of her child that got Luna and Sun founder, Teshani McManus thinking about the fashion fittings minefield. When she became a new mum, Teshani was spending way more time at home and shopping online in places she hadn't been before. Somewhat ironically, as a fashion designer and maker herself, she was finding it hard to shop easily due to being a different size depending on the brand.
Ordering several different sizes and having to return the ones that don't fit simply isn't practical. It is far too time consuming, and anyway, the fate of returned items isn't always clear. She started to wonder if there wasn't a real opportunity to start a personal fitting service for Luna and Sun.
Teshani decided to do just that - to literally take orders to customers in Brisbane personally to help ensure her customers only buy items they love and will wear for years to come.
Luna and Sun are offering Brisbane women in-home Fitting Room service free of charge. Bookings are timeslotted by simply choosing the clothes to be fitted.
Teshani wants to go above and beyond to provide her customers exceptional service and wants them to absolutely love their purchases.
"WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON BEING A SUSTAINABLE AUSTRALIAN MADE (BRISBANE OWNED AND BRISBANE MADE) LABEL AND WE STRONGLY BELIEVE LOVED CLOTHES LAST. WE WANT OUR CUSTOMERS TO ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEIR PURCHASES."
Customers will also get the opportunity to speak to Teshani and take advantage of styling advice and answering any fashion questions.
Luna and Sun is a Brisbane owned and Brisbane made label with the Ethical Clothing Australia accreditation. They use natural fabrics and have the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certification for all their clothing and they are a cruelty-free label. Luna and Sun lists where all their materials are sourced and they also show their customers how they price their items so customers can learn more about the true cost of ethically made fashion.
Their new collection - Ahimsa, showcases some beautiful prints some of which were inspired by traditional Indian architecture and motifs the founder Teshani grew up admiring on her mother's sarees.
