Lisa Ho garments selling for less than half price
On Sunday 30th June Australia designer Lisa Ho will close the doors to the Australian public, saying goodbye to 30 years of fashion and the Lisa Ho legacy. It is sad to see Lisa Ho go, but this fashion house hasn't been the only one on the verge of voluntary administration.

It seems that Australian buyers are choosing not to support our local designers and that online sellers like Asos and Nasty Gal are taking over. Is it that the price of hand made garments can't compare to manufactured-in-bulk items for half the price? Sadly, it seems to be the case. With so many options, it is easy to forget about the value, time and effort that these artists are spending to create cutting edge, detailed and unique pieces, only for the big name stores using offshore manufactures to sew and 'copy' these pieces.
So head in to Lisa Ho before the end of June to support Australia's designers, even if in this case, it is too late. All garments are hugely discounted.
