Where are October Eighteen pieces made?

We're very proud that more than 95% of our pieces are lovingly crafted right here in our own in-house atelier in Hong Kong! We're passionate about creating beautiful, high-quality fashion that you'll love wearing, and we're so proud to be able to do it right here at home. Of course, we also want to make sure we can offer you a wide variety of styles, so we've partnered with a wonderful local family-owned manufacturer to share some of the workload. We believe that collaboration is key, and we're grateful for the opportunity to work with such talented and dedicated people. 

What makes octobereighteen pieces special?

Because of our unique blend of style, quality, and sustainability. We focuses on creating fun clothing with a timeless appeal, ensuring that our garments can be worn for years to come. We prioritise using high-quality materials and craftsmanship, resulting in durable and long-lasting products. We committed to sustainability, incorporating eco-friendly practices into our production processes and using materials that have a minimal impact on the environment.

What are our sustainability practices?


Every item is made in very limited quantities. The process starts with sourcing quality fabrics, designing and testing patterns, cutting, sewing, pressing, checking for loose threads and finally packaging. It takes approximately 6-8 hours for a piece to be made from start to finish. Some take up to 12 hours to make. Every piece is truly special and unique. 


Reducing waste and eco-footprint. OctoberEighteen uses overstock (also known as deadstock) fabrics, from various designer fashion houses and factories, to 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.


Keeping a direct and realistic approach. OctoberEighteen only releases small capsule collections, to avoid mass production. Starting with a small quantity of each product, and only making more based on order demand and customer feedback, this means less waste and more exclusive. So, no one at the party will be wearing the same outfit as you!


We are actively striving for a reduction of the environmental impact of our products. As part of our packaging policy, 98% of OctoberEighteen's packaging material are recycled paper and biodegradable. We encourage you to reuse our packaging materials as many times as you can, because if everyone uses them at least twice, we'll reduce the waste on this planet by 50%.

Would an item be restock once it's sold out?

We're all about sustainable fashion here at OctoberEighteen, which is why we often use overstock/deadstock fabrics for our garments. These materials are really special because they're in limited quantities, which means once they're gone, they're gone! So, if you see something you love, don't hesitate – grab it before it's too late! We promise you'll feel good knowing that you're not only getting a one-of-a-kind piece, but you're also making a positive impact on the environment.
