Nisa escapes the world of fast fashion by manufacturing in-house, providing employment opportunities that matter, and using eco-friendly fabrics and production techniques to minimise impact on the planet. She has teamed up with The Social Studio to bring a pop up as part of Melbourne Fashion Festival.
Nisa is a cult-favourite underwear label from New Zealand, selling briefs, bralettes, socks, swimwear and activewear. Since its inception in 2017 by ex-lawyer Elisha Watson, the brand has provided employment to 23 people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
A strong believer in avoiding excess, Nisa escapes the world of fast fashion by manufacturing in-house, providing employment opportunities that matter, and using eco-friendly fabrics and production techniques to minimise impact on the planet.
Nisa has teamed up with The Social Studio, a Melbourne-based social enterprise providing work and learning opportunities for Melbourne’s refugee and new migrant communities, to bring a Nisa Pop Up to life in The Social Studio’s shop.
Nisa has a strong online Australian fanbase, but this will be the very first opportunity for Aussies to try on garments in person, meet the team, and learn more about Nisa’s processes and philosophy.
This is a free event, RSVP is required. Register for tickets here.
