Our Why

Clothing The Gap is a Victorian Aboriginal owned and led social enterprise. We are a fresh and dynamic fashion label managed by health professionals that celebrates Aboriginal people and culture. 

Clothing The Gap is a play on the words "Closing the Gap", which is an Australian Government health initiative to help close the life expectancy gap between Aboriginal people and non-Indigenous Australians.

We are self-determining our futures and you can help us 'clothe the gap'.  

Clothing The Gap unites non-Indigenous and Aboriginal people through fashion and causes, one of which is to help Close the Gap.

How are we doing this? 100% of profits actively support Aboriginal health promotion and education programs throughout Victoria. We are currently backing Spark Health Australia
