Life is busy, we get it. We’re women that are capable of multi-tasking and kicking goal after goal whether that’s at work, at home, with our children, friends or family - we’re givers without realising it. That’s why it’s so important to give back to ourselves as well. So, consider this your weekly REMINDER to do so.
The statistics surrounding textile waste and the damage it does to our environment and ocean can send any human mind into overdrive, but the facts are crucially important to know about.

It’s a dilemma alright.
Spinning off from last weeks blog, Lucille 4-in-1 Ladies Hi Vis Jacket: Solving working women's workwear frustrations, we had an awesome opportunity to implement feedback received about our hi vis vest and hi vis jacket. If you weren’t already aware, the Lucille 4-in-1 Ladies Hi Vis Jacket comes with a removable vest and detachable hood, giving you the freedom to dress up or down as you please.
Doing what we do best, we collaborated with these women along with industry leaders BHP, to create the best ladies hi vis jacket on the market. Lucille turned out to be a one of kind beauty – featuring everything that these women had asked for.
Lately there’s been a large focus on women in STEM, or more so, the lack of women in these fields. The Australian Government has created a 2020 Action Plan to enable STEM in education, support women in STEM careers and make women in STEM more visible. Empowering women to follow STEM careers starts with the foundational education in schools.
It’s not a secret we’ve kept on purpose, but not everyone has seen or felt our women’s work cargo pants in action! The Alison hi vis work cargos and the Carly non hi vis work cargos both share a unique and innovative feature designed specifically for the working woman in mind. This feature is known as an Easy Fit waistband – which is simply an invisible, extendable waistband.
