Listen now
In this episode, Elizabeth speaks with Margie Woods, the Founder and Creative Director of Viktoria & Woods. Viktoria & Woods was established in 2004, with a simple approach to create effortless wardrobe staples with a pared back modern feel. At the heart of the label is the signature merino wool that launched the brand and since has expanded into complete ready-to-wear collections that include premium denim, footwear, lounge and occasion wear that are showcased in its ten exquisite retail boutiques. Proudly, the greater part of the designs are made in Australia and accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia. Viktoria & Woods value sustainable textiles and manufacturing methods that leave a lighter footprint on the planet, a philosophy they are committed to. This was an inspiring conversation with Margie where she shared her journey of building an iconic, much loved Australian brand and omnichannel business over the last 17 years.
