Clothing Conversion Chart for Women

As both a designer and buyer/importer, I am perpetually perplexed by the conversion of standard sizes of clothing across the globe i.e. an Australian size 10 – although an “S” on home turf – is frequently “M” in the United States and “XS” in the United Kingdom. Confused? I am confronted by this conundrum at least three to four times a week and at such times find myself scrabbling for information, online and/or elsewhere. To end this silliness I decided to set up a definitive Clothing Conversion Chart for Women on this website. What a relief. I shall scrabble no more.

MISS MOSS loves Mar Y Sol

We’re absolutely loving the latest products in our online and retail store – and so too, are our customers – these products are flying out the door! Mar Y Sol is a socially responsible accessories brand that collaborates with artists in New York and artisans in Madagascar.  Mar Y Sol design and create authentic accessories made by hand using natural materials sourced sustainably from Madagascar’s precious forests.  The sale of these products enable families to gain economic independence and promotes environmental conservation.

Laurel Brandstetter launched Mar Y Sol, formerly Mad Imports, in 2003 as an outgrowth of a Madagascar-based community development project.  While cultivating relationships with artisans in Madagascar she partnered with fashion designers and other creators in New York City to develop an inspired collection that celebrates Madagascar’s unique raw materials and incomparable craftsmanship.  This cross cultural design process resulted in a brand that is recognised for its vibrant sensibility and imaginative use of materials, colour and texture.  Mar Y Sol’s products have since been featured in dozens of fashion magazines and are available in boutiques, specialty retailers and department stores around the globe. Now you can by them in Australia via MISS MOSS online and in our retail store located in sunny Milton, New South Wales.

Topshop: The UK mega retailer sets up shop in Sydney!

After many years of buying online;  I am beside myself to find British multinational retailer Topshop (which specialises in fashion clothing, shoes, make-up and accessories) to be opening a flagstore in Sydney! After many rumours of opening days flying around, a date has been settled on, October the 4th. The Sydney store will be the second store in Australia, the first opened in Melbourne December of last year.

Beginning back in 1964 in the basement of a department store, Topshop has now grown to over 440 shops across 33 countries. In 1970, Topman was created as a spin-off brand to cater for male customers and is now run as a separate chain, although some stores are co-located.

With designers at High Street prices alongside fashion items for the budget conscious Topshop has attracted a multitude of customers, including a variety of royal and celebrity customers;  Kate Middleton, Rihanna and Lindsay Lohan.

Collaborations with Christopher Kane and Kate Moss has led to Topshop’s London store in Oxford St to become the world’s biggest high-street fashion store, attracting more than 200,000 people a week.

With a bunch of pop-up events and giveaways happening when the Melbourne store opened, make sure you take some time out to pop in! (45 Market Street, Sydney 2000)
