Our Story

Since our humble beginnings over 30 years ago, The Ark Clothing Co. has been designed and made in Melbourne by a community of like-minded people who believe design should always be imbued with integrity.

Proudly Australian owned with an incredibly passionate and talented team of over 70 staff, The Ark has 7 stores - 6 in Victoria, 1 in South Australia, and an online store shipping worldwide.

Making small runs of our beautiful designs locally and ethically in Australia and supporting the talented makers we are lucky to work with every day is at the heart of who we are and what we do.

We are passionate about supporting the Australian Fashion Industry and intensely proud of being Ethically Accredited. Committed to making a difference, we exercise socially responsible practices knowing we have the potential to not only transform the ways in which we view and understand fashion, but also the opportunity to change people's lives.

Helping women feel good about themselves has always been our mission. Every year, we connect with women who attend our signature styling workshops and personal styling sessions, learning how to create simple wardrobes with intelligent design to help them feel stylish and confident anytime, anywhere. Not just through beautiful clothes, but with a considered and sustainable approach to personal style, using fewer, quality pieces that do more.

Thank you for enabling us to do what we love…your conscious decision to buy The Ark has made a difference.
