How it was started

Child of Society was established in 2022. After learning about the impact of the fashion industry on the environment, she decided to create her brand drawing connections between the environmental issues we are facing around the world and the answers that lay in traditional techniques.

Celina began growing Japanese Indigo to use as a dye source and exploring zero waste patternmaking to minimise the waste and environmental impact.

Child of Society continues to be her vessel to explore and showcase the beauty of traditional techniques as something that can and should be brought into the future.

Who do we work with

Celina's fabrics and dyes are sourced from Australian suppliers, and she does her best to make sure she knows where everything is coming from. The design, dyeing, and making process are all done with two own hands.
