The dream

The dream

Hello you. I'm Chantelle, one half of ada + lou.

ada + lou has been a dream for a long time now. You see, fashion hasn't always been fun for me. There were many years that it wasn't a matter of finding clothes I adored and couldn't wait to buy, it was a matter of finding things that fitted. Sometimes that was ugly clothes to make do, or even men's jeans because they were the only thing I could buy over a size 16. It wasn't fun.

Slowly, I managed to find beautiful bigger clothing {most of the time from overseas} and I loved how it made me feel inside. I was excited to get dressed in the morning. I realised fashion could be fun. I felt beautiful and so happy.

So, my dream was to make beautiful clothing for curvy girls that made them feel gorgeous, inside and out. I want people to smile when they see their ada + lou clothing hanging in their wardrobes, and even better when they popped it on.

This dream has been years in the works, and we've worked so hard to bring you clothing that will make you feel beautiful, which is also made in Australia. We can not wait to share it all with you
