Naomi swalwell is the founder and creative director of house of lacuna. She is a slow fashion lover and has a great love for sustainable development, nature and the ocean since childhood. Naomi’s inspiration for launching house of lacuna came from her highly destructive frustration with the fast fashion industry. She wants to create her own sustainable women’s clothing brand, reflect the value of slow fashion, and create a beautiful clothing series with the purpose of sustainable development, so that others can enjoy it.
Naomi’s career began with clothing manufacturing and design, where she worked for eight years, and then moved to clothing procurement and production management. She launched house of lacuna in 2019, bringing fresh and vibrant new aesthetics to Australian women’s moral fashion. Naomi’s knowledge in design and clothing structure is combined with her experience in junk trade to make her a fashion brand with moral awareness and sustainable awareness, which you will definitely like.
Living on the beautiful central coast of New South Wales, Naomi was inspired by her unique design and custom prints from the charming scenery she proudly called home.
As a brand, house of lacuna has always considered the sustainability strategy in the design process. Their design philosophy is that function is more important than form, quality is more important than quantity, and speed is more important than speed. But this doesn’t mean that they can’t wear beautiful women’s clothes. In fact, the cross season wearability of our collection is the special feature of house of lacuna.
