Collective Closets
Slow Fashion Label

Open by appointment only

Collective Closets was founded in 2016 by sister duo, Fatuma and Laurinda Ndenzako. Paying homage to their late mother and talented seamstress, Stella, the brand was born as a way to celebrate the women in their community. Together, the pair are passionate about telling stories, giving back and uniting women through a universal sartorial dialogue.


Collective Closets was created to fill a gap in the Australian market – one that connects to the talent, beauty and rich history of the African continent. Each Collective Closets collection is a celebration – of both the incredible artisans who make our threads and the beautiful people who wear them.
