Our Sustainable Approach

Hand in hand, side by side, Pari Passu Boutique aims to build a more connected and conscious community by empowering you to make more informed decisions when it comes to fashion and style.

Ethos

Our fast-paced way of life can often make us feel like we’re running on a hamster wheel, forever trying to keep up with the quest for newness. 

At Pari Passu, we want to slow down the fashion calendar while still satisfying your desire for newness. We do this by slowly and intentionally curating selections based on the longevity each garment will have in your wardrobe and the versatility of each piece. Our aim is to offer you fresh, fashionable pieces that will never become obsolete so you can stand out from season to season, event to event. 

We partner exclusively with designers who put sustainability firmly at the heart of what they do, who strive to empower women, and who believe that fashion and giving back to the environment go hand in hand. 

To us, less is more. We believe that cost should correlate to quality and longevity and we value fair work. We stand by the costs reflected in our prices due to craftsmanship, innovative materials and sustainable design ethics.

If you ever have an issue with an item purchased with Pari Passu Boutique we will happily work with you on a repair or replacement.

Our Mission

Since 2016, Pari Passu Boutique has embarked on its own journey of self-exploration to become the brand it is today. Inspired by its Latin definition of hand in hand, side by side, we’ve created a space where the clothes you wear match perfectly with your true self.

But beyond clothes, our mission is to create a world where we’re all empowered beings who are unafraid to discover our sense of self. A world where we can be our own alchemists and have permission to explore the things that light us up. And a world where we can spark a revolution of thought around all things self-care, self-love, and self-expression.

Our Beliefs

We believe in deeper conversations with the people we love about the things that keep us up at night. 

We believe in looking within to explore, experiment, and find our true self. 

We believe in taking a good, long look at our individual and collective actions, and how they impact ourselves and the world we live in. 

We believe in promoting the longevity of quality design craftsmanship for a more sustainable future within our industry. 

Above all, we believe that we’re all on equal footing, here to encourage and uplift one another on our unique journeys through life. 

Pari Passu Boutique respectfully acknowledges the traditional owners of the land, the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) people of the Kulin Nation and pays respect to their Elders, past present and future.

Giving Back

Step into your own power.

It’s normal to feel overwhelmed and powerless when you hear about the state of the world and the role the fashion industry plays. No matter how much you long to give back, it never feels like it’s enough. 

But small actions lead to impactful results, and even the tiniest of steps can lead to monumental changes. 

We want to make it easier for you to reclaim your own power. That’s why we’re partnering with like-minded businesses who are contributing to a better, kinder world.

One Tree Planted x Pari Passu Boutique

We know that consumption and sustainability do not go hand in hand. Which is why we’re thrilled to partner with One Tree Planted, an organisation that helps us combat the effects of consumption by planting a tree in response. 

Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honoured to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.

With every order placed and every item sold, we have pledged to plant a tree to combat global deforestation.

Upparel x Pari Passu Boutique

Did you know that 80% of all clothing bought in Australia goes into landfill? 

According to Planet Ark, over 90% of Australian consumers and businesses are rightfully concerned about environmental sustainability. But only half believe they’re doing their fair share to protect our planet. 

At Pari Passu Boutique, we pledge to join the movement and reduce the number of textiles that end up in landfill due to massive garment overproduction and non-existent recycling initiatives. It’s time to break up with fast fashion and embrace the slow fashion movement. 

Our community now has the chance to close the loop and join us in building a restorative movement. Thanks to our partner, Upparel, you can return your unwanted textiles to us, and we’ll ensure these items avoid landfill by being donated, recycled, or repurposed. 

Every time you submit a collection to the Upparel team, you will receive store credit to use with us. It's a win for our mission, a win for your wardrobe declutter, and a win for you.
