More Ways To Find Us... Hello Sydney 👋

More Ways To Find Us... Hello Sydney 👋


As winners of the NDA Sustainability Award at the Melbourne Fashion Festival in 2019, we received mentorship as part of of our accolade from iconic Australian department store David Jones.

This year, David Jones invited us to stock with them as part of their Mindfully Made initiative where they are supporting a series of brands that focus on responsibly sourced materials and mindful processes to minimise environmental impact.

We are excited to announce that for a limited time we have a small Arnsdorf Pop-Up in two major David Jones locations:

Melbourne Bourke Street Mall Store

Sydney Elizabeth Street Store 


This is especially wonderful news if you are living in Sydney and haven't had a chance to visit us yet! 

Both stores are carrying a selected edit of our collection including some of our Limited Edition styles and our classic Permanent Collection. There are also a small selection of styles available online here.

We feel honoured to take this opportunity to spread the word on our transparency and our ethical and sustainable journey.


We make each piece in our Ethical Clothing Australia certified factory located in Melbourne. Each garment is sewn by one of our incredible machinists that have over 20 years industry experience. 


MIFF (the Melbourne International Film Festival) are asking us to Stay Home and See the World via their festival which will be virtual this year.

In their 68th year, they've titled the festival 68 1/2 as it's not quite the full deal. Fair enough.

It won't be anything like our regular MIFF experience (we will miss our random queue meet ups and film friend chats!) but this way we won't have to brave those queues and the cold and actually have dinner ;)

Festival director Al Cossar has built a programme with over 60 features which will be streamable via ticketed access on a state-of-the-art digital platform designed by Shift72.

The festival runs from August 6 to 23 and importantly the programme will be released on July 14 here.

The Nora Top and Skirt in Cloud

Chic yet comfortable

Jerri wears the Nora Top in Cloud


When we all talked about our go to pieces during our time at home, the Nora styles kept coming up as a favourite for all of us.

Chic yet comfortable. 

This time around we have cut the the top and skirt in a new wider, slightly softer rib fabric which  we developed and had woven right here in Melbourne from 91% Organic Cotton and 9% Cotton.

The same easy, classic silhouettes in a delicious new colour, a pale lilac called Cloud which has been garment dyed locally using a GOTS approved dye. 


Jerri wears the Merino Rib Funnel Neck Skivvy in Chalk Combo (coming soon) and the Nora Skirt in Cloud

Jerri wears the Sloane Jumper and the Nora Skirt both in Cloud

The Nora Skirt  is an easy pull on mid length style with an elastic waist and side splits that works  with slides, sandals, sneakers or boots - make it your own look and make it really work for you.

Go for an amazing tonal look with the matching Nora Top or the Sloane Jumper.

The Sydney Film Festival Goes Virtual and it's Screening Now!

Still from Swiss-German feature film, My Little Sister

The 67th Sydney Film Festival has gone virtual and scaled down to a very achievable 33 films screening over 12 days from the 10th to the 21st of June.

The festival is divided in to three sections - Documentaries, Shorts Films and 'Europe! Women in Film' and festival director Nashen Moodley has included a strong Australian content to support our industry.

Screening is the Swiss-German drama feature film called My Little Sister  directed by Stéphanie Chuat and Véronique Reymond which was nominated for the Golden Bear at this year's Berlinale.

Still from new Australian documentary Our Law screening now at SFF

Directed by Cornel Ozies with some stunning landscapes, Our Law is a documentary on Western Australian's first Indigenous run police station based in the town of  Warakuna which is about 330 kilometres west of Uluru.

The Sydney Film Festival is live now and you can see the programme and book to view here.


We've reached out to women in the Arnsdorf community to reveal their personal tips for staying healthy, sane and engaged during this interesting time...

Michelle wears the silk Claudia Jacket


What is your name and and what do you do?

My name is Michelle and I'm a Doctor in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne. 


What is your connection to Arnsdorf? 

Long time fan-girl and ardent admirer.  I’ve always loved the clean construction and gentle aesthetic of Arnsdorf since discovering it in the iconic Blonde Venus in Brisbane when I was living there many moons ago. The pieces feel so special without being too fussy or precious which I really like. I wore my Blanca Blouse to my medical school graduation and it was the perfect, simple but different garment that made my day. 


What are you doing to stay active?

Living room power yoga (maybe in child’s pose a little more than if the instructor were watching), some backyard Tabata workouts and jogging with Iggy my rescue kelpie x lab pup. 

Michelle wears the Celeste Suit Jacket with the Classic Shirt and the Suit Trouser in Black

Are you reading a great book or do you have a favourite podcast?

Currently enjoying the podcast ‘I Said No Gifts’ with Bridger Winegar. It was recorded mostly pre-pandemic and is a nice fun escape. Also listening to Raven Smith’s ‘Trivial Pursuits’ audiobook which has validated the importance of my increasingly dysfunctional obsession with / addiction to Instagram. 

I’m also retreading Leslie Stein’s comic ‘Bright Eyed at Midnight’, which has such simple beautiful drawings and reminds me a lot of my late 20s. 

Ooh and also special mention to the life-affirming TV show ‘High Maintenance’


What about food. Are you cooking or are you addicted to a particular snack at the moment?

There’s a cafe around the corner from me in West Footscray called Brother Nancy that has delicious lamingtons. I think it’s the fresh thick chocolate coating and shredded coconut that makes them quite moreish. It started as an occasional sometimes treat but has really blossomed into a dependency during quarantine. 

Michelle wears the Blanca Blouse and the Suit Trousers in Black

Are you motivated to 'dress' for the day or are you repeating outfits? What are your go-to pieces?

Because work is very strict at the moment, I’ve mostly been wearing scrubs.

When I get home I gravitate toward bright colours and prints in lounging fabrics / styles with lots of layers and home made knits

Oh and always paired with my new house slippers

Have you been pleasantly surprised by engaging in something you normally wouldn't?

It’s been a really nice time for slowing down in some ways and having time to explore quiet introverted things. I’ve gotten more into drawing and painting. Mostly little silly sketches of flowers, pottery, my dog, food. I have been enjoying it as a sort of meditation

What songs are you feeling right now?

My lil sis Lou in Seattle made this playlist and I listen to it a lot. It takes me back to driving through Washington state countryside blissfully in January before the pandemic shut it all down. I can’t wait to visit  her in the Pacific Northwest again.

Feel energised in our Seafoam...  how dreamy :)

Feel energised in our Seafoam... how dreamy :)


Hi Everyone!

Today is officially World Environment Day and this year the theme of World Environment Day 2020 is “Celebrate Biodiversity”.

At Arnsdorf we try to treat every day as World Environment Day. 

Yes, we are a fashion brand but the heart of our philosophy is to do fashion ethically, sustainably and transparently.  This doesn't just mean the 'environment' as in a seperate being but in the environment of life through living and working in a better place and world.

We do our best but are always looking at ways that we can continue to improve and we love hearing your feedback and encouragement. 

World Environment Day is another reminder for us all to celebrate why we are here and to keep working towards a better environment in every sense of the word.

Thank you for joining us on our journey!

Jerri wears the Siena Dress in Seafoam


Paying homage to the ocean, this colour is so fresh and uplifting, these pieces are the perfect mid-season pick-me-up.

Inspired by the neckline of our popular Claire Tee, the Siena Dress has narrow adjustable shoulder straps and finishes just above the knee.

The slip style is bias cut from a matt finish tencel fabric that has enough weight to drape and fall rather than cling.

Wear as is for a sexy summer or evening look or layer it up!

The Siena is a perfect match over our Seafoam Skivvy.

Give it a 90's twist by layering it over a pair of our Suit Trousers.

Jerri wears the Merino Rib Funnel Neck Skivvy in Seafoam with the Celeste Jacket and the Tailored Trouser

A very limited edition version of one of our most popular styles! 

Our Merino Rib Skivvies are made from 100% fine Australian merino wool which is knitted locally here in Melbourne.

The Seafoam version has been custom dyed locally using a GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) dye.

The fabric is light and soft but warm and has a slightly sheer quality making it a great piece on it's own or perfect for layering.

This can add flexibility to some of your summer tops or add some much needed colour to your winter wardrobe. 



We make each piece in our Ethical Clothing Australia certified factory located in Melbourne. Each garment is sewn by one of our incredible machinists that have over 20 years industry experience.
