OUR STORY

Coming from the founders of Quay Australia Eyeware, is yet another unapologetic brainchild of Allen and Linda Hammond along with son Zak. Gaining ‘Street Cred’ over the years, this dream team has come together to create Dream Bandits.

Now they are continuing their journey and working to make the perfect bodysuit & bodywear destination.


“While we’re a global brand, behind the scenes in our Melbourne office, we’re a diverse yet a collective tight knit team, who work non-stop to help our customers embrace their individuality, and elevate their own personal style through wearing our pieces. Empowerment is the heart of Dream Bandits.”  

Founder, Linda Hammond

ETHICAL SOURCING

Dream Bandits is committed to manufacturing our products under safe, fair, and humane working conditions. We do not shop for the lowest price or tender out work. We only seek out new suppliers when our existing manufacturers are not able or willing to produce something in our range.

Suppliers must comply with applicable environmental laws, must maintain a written environmental policy, and must implement a system to minimize or eliminate negative impacts of its practices on the environment.

We ensure we build strong, positive rapports and long term relationships with all our manufactures, who are all a part of the Dream Bandits team.

We work towards a 6-month lead-time on our production orders. This model gives our manufacturer the opportunity to plan-ahead, stabilise their workforce and manage workflows.

“We believe in creating high end premium, curated collections where you are able to enjoy the pieces season after season, and reducing fashion waste and helping the environment in every way we can.”
