In March this year, Arnsdorf was awarded the National Designer Award for Sustainability from the Virgin Australia Fashion Festival, recognising the brand as an industry leader for its efforts to transform fashion in Australia. It was the first fashion brand in Australia to open up transparent pricing online of all of its products.
Anna Crabb, General Manager of B Lab Australia & New Zealand, the body that oversees the process internationally, says that Arnsdorf is setting the standard for Australian fashion.
“As a recognised leader of sustainable fashion Arnsdorf is setting the standard in fashion for critical environmental practices like toxin reduction and remediation,” says Ms. Crabb. “Arnsdorf is a perfect fit for the B Corp community of businesses that meet rigorous, third-party-verified social and environmental standards to balance profit and purpose… Gone are the days when choosing ethical fashion meant sacrificing either style, or your month’s rent, or both… B Corps are finding ways to create beautiful, high-quality, affordable products without compromising supply-chain ethics or wreaking havoc on the environment.”
