Introducing our Founder, Naomi Swalwell.

Meet House of Lacuna's founder and creative director Naomi Swalwell. 

A slow-fashion enthusiast who grew up with a huge love for sustainability, nature and the ocean. Naomi’s inspiration to launch House of Lacuna was ignited by her frustration of the highly-destructive nature of the fast-fashion industry. She wanted to create her own sustainable womenswear label that embodied slow fashion values and create beautiful clothing collections with a sustainable purpose that others could enjoy.

Naomi started her career in garment construction and design, where she worked for 8 years before moving into apparel buying and production management. She launched House of Lacuna in 2019, bringing a fresh and vibrant new aesthetic to ethical fashion for Australian women. Naomi’s knowledge in design and garment construction combined with her experience in the rag trade makes her ethically-minded and sustainably conscious fashion label, one you’ll absolutely love.

Residing on the beautiful Central Coast of New South Wales, Naomi draws inspiration for her unique designs and bespoke prints from the stunning landscape she proudly calls home.
