Founded in 2015 by Melbourne designer Melinda Andaloro; Saroka is recognised for its striking, yet super versatile garments. After several years of working in fashion, Melinda became frustrated by the lack of size inclusion and diversity within the industry. So she set out to break every rule in the book, catering for women up to a size 16. Beginning with the design process, filtering through to the wearing experience, Saroka aims to empower women to feel incredible no matter what their shape or size.
Saroka models span a variety of women in order to throw away with fashions ideals. When a Saroka garment is seen on a Saroka model, it accurately represents how the fit, cut and of course style will look in reality. The female figure is always at the forefront of design, taking into account that every woman is unique and celebrating this in each piece - because when a woman feels confident nothing stands in her way.
Further to this, Saroka lays focus on slow and sustainable fashion, each garment is hand made to order in Melbourne, eliminating fabric and stock waste. Saroka focusses on quality over quantity, using premium fabrics and hand sewn finishes to ensure, each garment becomes a long-term investment piece.
