Highrack fairy, Tessa McGregor, began Highrack Studios in 2014. Inspired by decades past, Tess began the label by selling scrunchies and embroidering vintage tees.
Fast forward to today, and you’ll find Tess designing the clothing label herself, expanding the range to include everything from footwear to the signature Sublime bikers and flares.
The Sublime bikers were created in 2019, Tessa designed them after spending lots of time around the house in her partner Magnus' underwear, "I felt sexier in those than anything else"
Tessa sat down to refine the design drawing inspiration from the iconic Chanel 90s briefs. Since then the design has become a global trend, adopted by many brands including SKIMS.
Why "Sublime?" It simply means of great beauty or excellence.
What began as a one woman show now includes a small team of three, and together they run Highrack Studios from Melbourne, Australia.
Dreaming of a utopia where fashion is slow and seasonless, Highrack sets the trends instead of following them. Our clothing is produced by a small, ethical manufacturer in Guangzhou, China. The lovely team bring the Highrack collections to life in small quantities, to be loved and treasured by you.
Looking good and doing good for the planet go hand in hand, so all Highrack Studios orders are packaged using recycled paper and plastic-free components, then sent worldwide via eco-friendly, carbon neutral shipping.
Highrack Studios celebrates individuality and wants everyone to feel simply sublime in our clothing, so we’re always working to increase the inclusivity of our size range and feature diverse models in our shoots.
Highrack Studios respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which they live and work - the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation and pays respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
To give back to this community, Highrack Studios donates monthly to the Pay the Rent and Red Dust charities, both of which support Indigenous Australians. In addition to supporting local Australian charities, Highrack has partnered with i=Change, donating $1 AUD from every order placed to the charity of your choice. Highrack Studios also pledges $200 USD per month to plant 200 trees. We use paper within our business, so we believe it’s our duty to participate in reforestation efforts across the globe.
At Highrack Studios, we advocate for transparency; in our clothing (#freethenipple) and in our business!
We know it’s because of our beautiful Highrack honeys that all this is possible and are so grateful for your love and support.
We’ve built an inspiring community that we encourage everyone to be a part of by following us on Instagram, contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tagging @highrack_studios in any pics flaunting your Highrack ‘fits.
