“I realised that these were essential clothes for travel and for getting through life. They made getting dressed easy – no buttons, no zips, flattering shapes, easy to wear, always fitted, didn’t cling, wonderful against the skin,” Mela once told The Australian.

Why do we love Mela Purdie clothing?



The fabrics in each collection is soft, crunchable fabrics which don’t need ironing. They incorporate the softest silk, jersey and technical weaves. Her signature technical weave is a technical polyester which behaves similarly to silk in that it’s soft and breathable. At the same time, it is highly engineered to be durable and machine-washable. This makes the clothing a beautiful choice for women on the go – whether at home or abroad.

The fabrics also work well for our warm Australian climate.


Items are available from sizes 6 to 22, and Labels by the Bay are one of the few stores in Brisbane to offer up to size 22. Her pieces are extremely comfortable to wear. They look amazing on a range of body shapes and sizes, because they are cut to fall over the body in all the right places and are not clingy.

The style is soft, casual and classic. Colours incorporate a bank of neutrals with bolder complimentary pieces in bright, stripe, geometric and floral.


Mela Purdie clothing is fashion you can comfortably invest in. One-third of her clothing is made up of a core range which doesn’t change. You can build on that wardrobe season after season, with everything matching seamlessly.  This allows you to create a capsule wardrobe around easy, wearable basics. This range is then extended to incorporate exciting pieces from season to season which keep your look fresh. For women choosing this label, you are therefore given endless combinations which work together beautifully.

The technical weave is also eco-friendly, derived from renewable corn. Mela Purdie lines are mostly manufactured in Australia with the small exception of knitwear, cashmere and jeans.

In short, Mela Purdie is an Australian label offering “fashionable pieces for the Global Traveller, or Woman on the Go.”  The clothing is seasonal and has an assortment of dresses, tops, pants and skirts.

Mela Purdie clothes are fashionable and perfect for a relaxing weekend of shopping or a long-awaited holiday.
