Hello! I am Josie Ryder and I run the small, independent clothing label Frances Baker in Melbourne, Australia. All Frances Baker clothing is individually handmade from start to finish by myself right here in Melbourne.

I started Frances Baker out of my passion for beautiful, well made clothing that you can truly love and use in your everyday life; I am fascinated by the potential for clothing and outfits to evoke memories and moods! I try to run Frances Baker according to my own views that clothing should be long lasting, reflective of individual style and creativity rather than trends, and be at minimal cost to the environment.

I work with high quality eco friendly fibres such as bamboo and hemp, and also use vintage, recycled and remnant fabrics to try and keep waste to a minimum. You will see only the occasional conventional fabric creeping in if it's something I cannot resist! Garments made from vintage fabrics are one (or occasionally two) of a kind- you won’t see someone else in your dress!

My ultimate goal is to make clothing that is practical as well as beautiful: simple, comfortable dresses that you can love and wear over and over again. It is these kinds of items that you want to hold onto forever that I try my very best to design for Frances Baker.
