Australian Aboriginal swimwear designer, Joanne Pellew, founded Bandi Bandi swim and resort wear in 2010. Joanne is the entrepreneurial force of Bandi Bandi, one of the new breed of Aboriginal business people, Australia’s Aboriginal modern-day entrepreneur.
Joanne has created a premium Australian Aboriginal design-based swim and resort wear range, providing sophisticated fashionistas with functional yet incredibly feminine pieces that carry strong original prints on quality fabrics, with a highly visible Australian perspective.
Bandi Bandi is a new start Aboriginal company being privately funded by its Aboriginal owners, where the design, manufacture and marketing of the product is currently done in-house. With a natural affinity to Aboriginal business, Joanne has been active in the business world for some time, taking a hands-on approach in her very successful Personnel and Training company.
With practical ingenuity and skill, and a socially conscious business model, Bandi Bandi’s Project Management and Production teams have cleverly constructed an Australian business that combines function and style in the merchandise, while creating economic opportunities for Aboriginal Australians through commercial pursuits.
Bandi Bandi is uniquely poised to deliver a high-quality product with true Australian Provenance.
Bandi Bandi provides a sophisticated market with access to Australian Aboriginal designs that connect luxury modern swim and resort wear with the timeless majesty of Aboriginal reflected thought.
Will see new collections emerge with a range of accessories added to the label, gorgeous photoshoots, a strong social media presence, an e-commerce store launch and a new batch of undiscovered Indigenous models being elevated to a professional level. An exciting launch event is currently being planned. More news of this will be announced, taking into consideration any Covid restrictions which may impact the event.
