Brand Story

established 7/10/2019

I acknowledge the Wurundjeri people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which Celestin operates on and pay my respects to their Elders past, present and future. I extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Hi my name is Celest and I’m the founder of Celestin.

From a young age I became engulfed by the idea of fantasy to the point where kids my age where making mud pies but I was making spell infused mud soups with flowers from my grandmas garden. I used to think that I could feel an animals pain and heal them with light that came from my hands. I was the wired kid who kept looking for a key in dandelions because someone once told me it held the key to fairyland.

My grandma who was a dressmaker would make me fairy costumes for my birthday, I loved them so much that I hardly wore them. When I did wear them though I felt so magical especially in one in particular. From there the idea of wearing clothing that could take you into another world fascinated me and I began to follow in my grandmas footsteps into the fashion industry.

Now you would think that as I grew up my curiosity for the mystical and paranormal would fade but nope instead I became memorised by Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Bewitched, Sabrina The Teenage Witch and slightly terrified by Supernatural.

I graduated from university in 2018 majoring in Fashion and Costume Design. Growing up though I saw the waste of the fashion industry as my grandma took me to client meetings. Back then I didn’t realise how bad it was but now I do.

We live in a world where profit trumps life both, the life of humanity and the life of our planet. I always found it so hard to find brands that held the same values as I did both to work for their company and buy from them.

This is when Celestin was born on the 7/10/2019

Celestin was made for people sick of the lies and greenwashing we hear from the fashion industry. Allowing us to stick to our values while embracing our mystic side. Finding comfort, passion and empowerment in a coven of conscious rebels who have found their modern day fantasy.
