“At the end of the day, our mission is to create a safer and better world for our loved ones. It’s our global responsibility to leverage our expertise, our supply chain and resources in a new and innovative way to do just that.”

Twenty Years of High Standards 
Our journey in the apparel and global sourcing business began more than 20 years ago when we started Essense of Australia, a wedding dress design and wholesale company. Our family of brands is available at 1,200 retailers worldwide. Since our inception, we have never missed a bride’s wedding due to our sophisticated and experienced supply chain and logistics experts. In the bridal business, that’s a really big dealAdditionally, our industry holds itself to the highest quality control standards, so we’ve worked tirelessly to create a stringent process that is best-in-class. 
 
From Dresses to Masks 
What makes us qualified to produce PPE materials include the strong relationships we’ve built with our reputable factories across the world. This coupled with our sophisticated supply chain and quality control allow us to quickly source and produce millions of medical grade masks and other protective health gear. 
  
A Global Family 
Our passion goes beyond bridal. We have nearly 350 employees across the globe and believe we must do our part as responsible global citizens to take care of the communities where we live and work. Our employees at our US headquarters in Kansas partner yearly with KVC Health System and the Johnson County Christmas Bureau to give back to families in need in the state's largest county. Our care for communities is especially true during times of crisis. As our homeland in Australia was ravaged with wildfires, we made a personal donation to assist in relief efforts. Now, with the pandemic sweeping the globe, we will continue to innovate and find ways to leverage our expertise to help fight this virus.
