At her fashion week debut in May, Nadia looked chic in a black power suit and told the Herald Sun that it’s a ‘very proud moment’ for the brand.

‘When we launched Henne three years ago I always had hoped that one day we could show at AAFW,’ Nadia told the publication.

Henne has been a runaway success with the word being Swedish for ‘her’.

The website lists its core values as a commitment to women’s voices, circularity, mindful consumption, working conditions, and environmental impact.

‘Each piece has been designed to be loved and worn for longer than just one season,’ the website reads.
