“Diversity” is a word that is very topical. It underpins a move towards a celebration of individuality. It celebrates humanity in all its richness and variety. It is about the empowerment of people to achieve equality, especially those whose needs and desires have not been addressed appropriately.
At Diversity we believe that fashion is for everyone whatever your age, size or culture. This is why Diversity Fashion is ‘Body Positive’, easy-fit, easy-care, high quality and on-trend. Designed by mother and daughter team, Jean and Amelia Hines, Diversity gives life to a philosophy and aesthetic in which individuality can be celebrated.
Jean and Amelia have a broad range of qualifications and experience between them. Their qualifications include Fashion Design, Image Consulting, Fine Arts and Business Management. Their experience includes many years of bespoke dressmaking, manufacturing and fashion retail. From humble beginnings as artisans, their business has grown from market stalls to their thriving boutique in Bathurst and now on-line.
Their designs are based on extensive research on fashion trends and first hand customer feedback. They have a keen understanding of fabric and cut. Diversity manufacturing is ethically based. Our clothes are made in Australia, Vietnam and Thailand and we have close relationships with our associates there and here.
Originally named ‘Belle Chemise’ the business name was changed to “Diversity” to better describe what they believe and what they do.
Jean and Amelia hope you will enjoy your experience here and look forward to a long-lasting relationship. You are invited to join our Sisterhood that currently has over 1000 members. Your confidentiality is assured and your membership is welcome.
