About

OUR PROJECT:

OUR OUTFIT:

Our project is simple, however we know of no one doing the same in the market place at the moment.

Every month on the 8th day of the month, we will release an OUTFIT.

This Outfit is curated to build a functional wardrobe through conscious design & manufacturing processes & will be a limited edition release only.

The price for the entire outfit is $350USD. We feel it is the best value $350USD you will ever spend on fashion.

We call it Curated Outfitting....

Every future Outfit released will be styled with carefully thought & will always co-ordinate with forthcoming outfits. We aim to make your life easy, providing you with complete & fundamentally versatile look.

To compliment this outfit we have also released some solid basic items, to extend the wearability, two of which are featured in our Organic Cotton Tees & Luxe Denim Jeans that fit perfectly & are equivalent in style & quality with any of the sort after denim brands in the marketplace.

Here is a snap peak of the Outfit we are to release on the 8th day of April.

OUR STORY:

Hello, we are Kate & Garry of The Design Republik, very camera shy folk indeed...and much happier behind the scenes!

We have worked in the crazy world of fashion for too many years to count, for some of the largest companies in Australia, as well as designing for one of the biggest brands in the world.

For the last 12 months we have been working on the launch of our own brand The Design Republik.

We developed the idea of offering an Outfit per month for a combined price, a concept we believe to be unique.

Every Outfit we design is carefully styled to suit everyone, it is not too young & not to old, it is not too conservative & not too trendy, we feel that it is just right...

We call our concept, Curated Outfitting...

In February we launched with our first production run of our denim & have this month just days ago released Outfit #1.

So dear Kickstarter supporters, we are a small self funded company with a big future and your assistance is humbly requested to make this a reality.

OUR REWARDS:

We have packaged all of our rewards at a modified rate on our already consciously priced offer. We hope to exceed all of your expectations with delivery of the rewards that you choose.

If our campaign is successful we will also send out a questionnaire that we will offer the purchase of additional items.

We hope that you become loyal devotees of our brand for many years to come & we will always remember those that supported us in the beginning. xo xo

OUR BRAND & ETHOS:

Our brand is a little bit different, it is Curated Outfitting....

Basically put, each month we will design & release a Curated Outfit as part of our monthly pocket collection.

This Outfit is meticulously styled so it will invariably co-ordinate back with former & forthcoming outfits allowing for a structured approach to constructing your wardrobe.

Our ethos at The Design Republik is simple; it is to deliver a designer level product in aesthetic & quality at a more intrigued entry level price point.

In the world of fast fashion, unfortunately styles are not made to last, as a designer and a conscious consumer I believe that we can do better.

Clean silhouettes and dedicated craftsmanship are the guiding principles for each piece we create. We use the finest merino wools, silks, cashmere, denim & organic cottons; and our timeless styles have been designed to last for many years with frequent use.

To keep our brand unique, only a limited release of our Outfits for pre-sale/pre-order will be made available per month, once this quota is subscribed to, production will commence & upon completion and extensive quality control, your purchase will then be delivered to you beautifully packed in one of our boxes.

Each & every month we aspire to provide the perfect outfit, the one that you confidently select, something representative of what is shown in magazine spreads, yet logistically & economically obtainable.

We compliment this Outfit with the addition of some extra on trend items (EXTRAS) and wardrobe staples (BASICS), including jeans that fit perfectly & luxe knitwear, styles that will extend the wearability & diversify the outfit.

A modest pricing structure is of high consequence to us at The Design Republik, yet this is in no way the result of any sacrifice to our quality. Our men’s & women’s collections are crafted with love and intention; using only the best materials, our garments are impeccable & inherently luxurious.

In most circumstances the price of our entire Outfit actually equates to far less than the retail price of just a coat alone found in any known middle market high street or department store.

You may ask how we can facilitate this, well such is a result of us learning solid methods over the many years that we have been working in the fashion industry, we have spent the last 12 months perfecting superior execution and building the efficient logistical structure that allows us to make this a reality & in turn offer our collection at a true cost, one that is not inflated with multiple margin requirements.

We undertake our manufacture in factories that are also utilised by top fashion houses. We have a sound ethical & environmental code of conduct & ensure that from sourcing our raw materials to dispatching our end products that social responsibility is paramount.

We are aware of our roll to our staff, our manufactures & their staff, society & environmental protection & we see to offset any carbon foot print we make by donating to environment charities. We also have a foundation called Inch by Inch Against Poverty (TM) through which we donate a percentage of the proceeds from our bags. Currently we support small business in developing nations involved in the apparel industry through Kiva & we are working with our denim factory to help provide community teachers who devote themselves to the rural elementary education for village children living in remote areas.

Our clothes are designed with love & made with conscience. If you support our sentiment, please support us.

OUR AIM:

With a $25,000 pledge from the Kickstarter Community we will produce the production run of The Design Republik Outfit & provide to you our kind supporters impeccably made garments made with love & intention...

This amount will facilitate additionally an increase in our marketing & social media promotional activities to assist further with our growth. 

We hope to also offer some stretch goals along the way which we hope will include a sneak peak at our Outfit #2 & #3.

Risks and challenges

We are seasoned professionals at this game & there is very little that will beat us, albeit stages of the process we are indeed reliant upon others for, however with scrupulous management we foresee no issues with both undertaking & completing this project.

PRODUCTION & DELIVERY:

Production space has been reserved to commence by the 30th April. All processes necessary proceeding this in the chain will be complete by this date.

QUALITY CONTROL:

We have engaged a 3rd Party Quality Control Inspection Company to complete our Quality Audit. We to will be present packing & sending & will endeavour not to miss a loose thread.

SHIPPING:

We will use DHL & Fedex for our shipments; they provide a highly efficient fully traceable process.

Whilst we hope there will be no lost shipments or customs delays we are in the hands of others for this function, albeit will be carefully tracking each item from our HQ to mitigate any issue before you are even aware of such, should one arise.
