keegan is a Melbourne made Women’s clothing label valuing originality, quality & slow fashion. Relaxed tailoring, minimalist silhouettes & statement hardware form Keegan’s trademark aesthetic. Comfort, style and versatility are integral to each Keegan design.
Launching in 2013, the label has shown 16 collections & has a retail store located in Fitzroy North.
MADE IN AUSTRALIA
keegan uses only local manufacturing, favouring the use of natural fibres to produce quality timeless pieces. Our garments are predominantly manufactured in-house & our busy studio is completely open for public viewing within our retail space. This grants the customer complete access to the evolution of each garment, from design, pattern making & sewing, through to finished garment. In doing so, we aim to forge a more meaningful relationship between customer, maker & product. When our studio is busy, we occasionally outsource production work to an independent factory within Melbourne. Our button-holing, eyeleting & laser cutting are outsourced within Australia.
Manufacturing predominantly in-house means we can produce in small runs, to meet demand, rather than mass producing each product. Our garments are designed with longevity in mind, from the timeless cut & aesthetic, to the way each piece is constructed.
Each year we produce a tran-seasonal collection, designed for layering & year-round wear.
Waste reduction is important to us, therefore we mostly use bio-degradable materials & during cutting, all usable off-cuts are collected & stored for future projects, or donated. Any pattern-making paper offcuts are collected and composted. We also use compostable mailing satchels for 90% of our online orders.
We love celebrating Australia design and stock a careful selection of local jewellery & footwear labels in store.
Our knitwear is produced through a collaboration with knitter Tanja Kozub. Each piece is hand crafted in her Mornington Peninsula studio in small numbers & hand delivered to our store. Many of the yarns used to create the garments are locally sourced, particularly the Alpaca, which is farmed and spun nearby on the Peninsula.
