About

RP Skirts are the world’s first skirt, designed from the ground up to not twist around your hips or ride up your body.  

No need to hairspray your legs, use bobby-pins to secure your skirt to your tights, roll your tights or stockings over your skirt or pin your skirt to your top; all of which are actual suggestions we found on websites and blogs! 

We have designed a luxury skirt, made of beautiful fabrics, that will become a centrepiece of your wardrobe!

Say goodbye to the embarrassment and frustration of a twisty skirt at work!

  • We support Local Industry - Our skirts are sewn in Australia.
  • Patent Pending Anti-Twist System - The RP Skirt has an innovative design that seamlessly adds an ‘underwear style’ anti-twist system (with press-studs for convenience) to the skirt. This system has two options of full-brief or cheeky-cut to suit your personal preference.
The seamless anti-twist system is hidden in the skirt. It will be available in a 'cheeky-cut' style!

NO Polyester – the RP Skirt is made of all-natural fabrics.

  • The outer layer is 100% Wool suiting, this breathable fabric keeps you cool in summer, warm in winter and is naturally resistant to creasing
  • The full-length inner lining is 100% Tencel (Lyocell) which is considered one of the most environmentally sustainable fabrics on the market today and is made of micro fibres derived from the wood pulp of Eucalyptus trees. Tencel feels soft and fresh against your skin, has 50% better moisture absorption than cotton leaving you cool and dry throughout the day and the inclusion of Eucalyptus means the fabric has antibacterial properties.  
  • The anti-twist system is a jersey knit made from 50% Organic Cotton and 50% Tencel. This fabric is breathable, anti-bacterial and soft so you stay comfortable and fresh throughout the day.
  • Extra long zipper - 26cm high-quality zipper positioned at the back of the skirt. Makes getting into your RP SKirt easy and keeps you looking sleek.

Have you ever tried a skirt on in store and thought, "This fits my hips but is gaping at my waist" or "This is perfect around my waist but is baggy around my hips"? The off-the-rack sizings just don't work for your body.

You are not alone!

That's why we have created a premium and unique sizing system that ensures your skirt is as close to tailor-made as possible. Introducing...

The Three Cuts:

  • Original Cut - If the off-the-rack skirt fits you to a T, this is the skirt for you!
  • Straight Cut - If you find the original cut is too baggy around your hips, this cut is perfect for you.
  • Curvy Cut - For those who find the original cut is gaping around the waist and tight on the hips, this is the cut for you.

The Seven Sizes:

  • Sizes 6 through 18.
  • Sizing charts below!

The Two Lengths:

  • A Longer Length and Shorter length option.
  • The shorter option will have 5cm taken off the top and bottom, shortening the full-length of the skirt by a total of 10cm.

 Dimensions:

A: 1/2 Waist; B: 1/2 Hip; C: 1/2 Hem; D: Full Length

  • Choose one of our amazing pledges and enter the amount of money you would like to pledge. 
  • Once you have chosen a pledge, your credit card WILL NOT be charged.
  • At the end of our 30-day campaign, if our project is successfully funded over the $30,000 goal, your credit card WILL be charged the amount you pledged. 
  • If unfortunately, the women of this world believe that twisting, riding and sweaty skirts are completely acceptable and we are not funded, at the close of day 30, the campaign will close and your credit card WILL NOT be charged.
  • Upon successful funding, you will be emailed a survey. Use this to choose all you desired colours, sizes and shapes of your RP Skirts and shirts!
  • Once you are done, let us do all work getting your beautiful RP Skirt made and shipped to your address!
  • ALL SHIPPING WITHIN AUSTRALIA IS FREE!
  • International Shipping, depending on location with Sendle Courier Services; a carbon-neutral service.

Our skirts are made of premium materials which means no plastic or other synthetic fibres.

Our skirts are made of wool, tencel and organic cotton.  There is no polyester in sight! These beautiful natural fabrics will ensure your skirt is breathable, beautiful and lasting. The RP Skirts is unlike any skirt you would find in popular stores, some of which are made exclusively from polyester or primarily from polyester, which will look shabby after only a few wears.

The wool suiting is the traditional corporate fabric and many suits men wear are made from this amazing fabric.  It is time to share the love and the experience of wearing beautiful wool suiting to the office.

This is also the reason for the cost of the skirt, but do not be alarmed!

If you look around some of the popular stores, you will find skirts ranging from AU$300 to $400 that are made exclusively of polyester and lack a sleek, smooth lining and anti-twist system!

We aim to provide a high quality and long lasting product that out-performs the big brands in both practicality, comfort and design. 

With an RRP of AU$270, the RP Skirt is affordable and a no-brainer for any lover of pencil skirts.

During the development of the RP Skirt, we tested all different kinds of material including cotton sateen and various wool suiting fabrics.  We have found the perfect fabric and secured a supplier.  But for us to make this amazing fabric exclusively for you we need to order 100s of metres to get us started.  That is where your support is desperately needed.  

Help us start and expand the colour range for the original RP Skirt!

   
    

Thank you to all of our supporters, friends and family!

           

Risks and challenges

We have been working non-stop on this project and have already secured the fabric source and sorted production, the factories are ready to go!

Once funded, our fabrics will take around 4 to 6 weeks to be custom made and then delivered to our factory in Sydney, Australia. Please be patient and continue to support our dream to revolutionise women's workwear.

See timeline for more detail...We will keep you up to date every step of the way.

Many samples have been made and we continue to make more samples to send to friends and family to help test and promote this awesome product!

We have designed our skirts to last, with a timeless style so you can wear it year after year!
