About OctoberEighteen

STORY

OctoberEighteen is an independent slow fashion brand. Born in a small studio in Hong Kong,
with a dream to create beautiful and quality clothing for those who are confident in their unique style. 
 Focuses on sustainability, femininity and individuality.
Design and creates clothing for the modern women,
to be worn with the constraints of seasonal trends and dress codes.

HANDMADE

Every item is handmade from scratch with love and care in very limited quantity.
The process starts from sourcing quality fabrics, design and testing patterns,
 cutting, sewing, pressing, check for loose threads and final packaging. It takes
approximately 6-7 hours for a dress to be made from start to finish. Some takes 
up to 12 hours to make. Every piece is truly special and unique.

ONE AT A TIME

Keeping a sustainable and realistic approach. OctoberEighteen only release one product
at a time when it is complete, there’s no mass production. Starting with a small quantity of
each product, and only make more if it is wanted, based on direct customer feedback,
this means less waste and more exclusive, so no one at the party will be wearing the same outfit as you.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

*Globally, an estimated 92 million tonnes of textile waste are created each year and by 2030,
we are expected as a whole to be discarding more than 134 million tonnes of textiles a year.
OctoberEighteen uses mainly overstock fabrics, from various designer fashion houses and
factories, create clothing based on the nature of the fabric itself. All fabrics used for production
are sourced according to usage and cut very cautiously to prevent fabric waste.
