Dark Thorn Clothing is an Australian Made timeless clothing line inspired by times past. It focusses on natural fabrics sourced from Australian wholesalers with an attention to detail. It does not follow trends and has its own personality making Dark Thorn unique and desirable.
Dark Thorn was established after the designer, Tori-Anne couldn’t find anything she liked to personally wear that wasn’t cheap or produced horribly, often resulting in rips, holes and garments that eventually saw the trash can. She knew she wasn’t the only one having this problem, so decided to create a label that focussed on Victorian Era inspired clothing made from high quality fabrics and craftsmanship. Rather than spending money on garments that eventually were discarded, she wanted to create a label that clients could invent in that focussed on detailed garments made to last a lifetime timelessly in your wardrobe.
Dark Thorn prides itself in remaining Australian made and producing high quality timeless garments. Only small production runs if each design is available making each garment special to every client. We promote the importance of quality over quantity and supporting Australian made and small business wherever you can. Dark Thorn provokes a feeling, it tells a story and it makes the client want to be a part of that story. Each garment is a piece of art and it helps the women who wear the garments feel empowered and strong.
Socially, Dark Thorn has created a world of wonder and mystique, creating and evoking a feeling and a story that when a client wears a piece of Dark Thorn they feel like they have transported into the Dark Thorn world. Environmentally Dark Thorn prides themselves in supporting slow fashion and investing in low impact high quality garments. Many years ago, fast fashion never existed, quality garments were purchased knowing the person would wear that garment repeatedly. Dark Thorn strives to bring back that feeling, that era of personal style.
