Hand Dyed Textiles From the Very Beginning

The Label:

R E M U S E is a Melbourne based clothing label where futurism meets nature. Fusing artisan techniques, low-impact dye technology, and natural fibers, R E M U S E investigates the ways the future of a fashion is simply fashion that takes inspiration from the earth.

The philosophy behind the label is to create small, ethically produced, trans-seasonal collections, released quarterly at the time of each Equinox and each Solstice. Each collection gives R E M U S E an opportunity to reconsider its impact and material choices.

The name "REMUSE" was conceptualised in 2015 from the idea of reclaiming one's inner musedom.. REMUSE is synonymous with reclaiming one's power, personal genius and inner zeitgeist back. We all have access to the creative genius.

The Materials:

R E M U S E utilizes natural fabrics, vegan materials, both fiber reactive and mindfully concocted plant-based dyes, and fabrics sourced both locally and globally, with a constant exploration of GOTS certified organic materials, deconstructured and recycled fabrics, and our foundation, unbleached and unaltered calico. Each R E M U S E products are designed and manufactured within our design studio in Collingwood, Victoria, and Ethical Clothing Australia accredited.

As a limited edition and made to order brand, R E M U S E welcomes commissions of custom designs that more intimately speak to our clients' personal ethics, while striving to evolve as a sustainable, body and size inclusive label with each collection and design.

The Designer + Maker:

Founded by New York born designer and stylist Tamara Leacock of Bahamian, Brazilian, and Kittitian heritage, R E M U S E is a wearable art practice rooted in resilience and reimagining new futures for adornment for contemporary bodies. Tamara has trained in patternmaking, draping, and construction at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Paris American Academy and received a dual Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University in Latin American Studies and International Studies. She further went on to pursue a Masters of Arts in Individualized Study at New York University focused on fashion as a vehicle for social justice.

Tamara is a designer and stylist who works with recycled materials, artisan techniques, and Afro-futurist aesthetics. As a designer, she integrates natural and recycled materials into shapes that are androgynous, often free size, and a fluid exploration of natural colour and mood. After working in the commercial fashion industry as an assistant stylist for film, television, NYFW and a number of international fashion and lifestyle publications, Tamara has since relocated to Narrm (Melbourne) to launch her label in connection with the lands she now calls home. She is currently a lecturer in the Fashion and Sustainability degree program at Collarts.

A firm believer in diversity in the fashion industry in front and behind the scenes, she continues to create garments and curate events that align with ethical principles from the lens of supporting people, animals, and the environment.

















"In some far off place
Many light years in space
I’ll wait for you.
Where human feet have never trod,
Where human eyes have never seen.
I'll build a world of abstract dreams
And wait for you."
