Our Story

With Harper Lu was founded in 2020 in Melbourne, Australia.

 

The concept and vision underpinning With Harper Lu has evolved since we established the brand. Initially, our focus was on the production of exclusive, limited edition garments and accessories. This vision has steadily evolved as we aim to consistently release a range of seasonal and core collections for every occasion. Today, we are proud that With Harper Lu combines contemporary prints and designs with sustainable fashion, to both Australian and International customers. Our commitment to local manufacturing originated from the initial recognition of a local patternmaker who sparked the concept of creating our own brand.

 

The name ‘With Harper Lu’ was borne out of a love for the name ‘Harper’, ‘Lu’ being short for ‘Lucia’ (one of our Co-Founders) and ‘With’ inviting our customers to join us on this exciting journey.

At the Core

We are passionate about designing garments with flattering silhouettes in intoxicating and unique prints for you and we are proud to have built a loyal community who love our signature designs as much as we do.

At the heart of With Harper Lu is a commitment to high quality and locally made products in limited quantities.

 

Each of our garments is created from start to finish in Australia. We love supporting our local network of manufacturers and suppliers and have built long lasting relationships with each. This also ensures we can work with our suppliers to produce products of the highest quality for our customers.

Our Values

Local manufacturing also means we can monitor and reduce our environmental impact. We take responsibility for reducing the impact of our online operations and are constantly pursuing being sustainable and environmentally-conscious as possible. Our signature designs are printed using water-based inks and energy-efficient machinery. Our packaging is also compostable and made from recycled materials.

We are intentional and conscious about creating limited quantities of our products to both develop our business, without creating oversupply and wastage. Notwithstanding these commitments, we are constantly learning and evolving as a brand and continue to implement changes as needed.

Thank you for being on this journey with us.
