Ostara Collection is a Melbourne born Sleep, lounge & resort wear label, bringing you limited edition prints & bold collections for the bedroom & beyond.
From the Founder
I'm Sonya, Owner and Head Creative at Ostara. I've been working as a designer & illustrator for over 10 years, between corporate and illustrative based roles in Melbourne, Australia. Life is an adventure and the thing that has always guided me is my passion and love for designing prints and bright patterns.
Ostara was born in 2017 after plenty of lattes, daydreaming and scribbles. At the time I was seeing my now-husband, Leonard and was struggling to find something I could wear at his house while relaxing that wasn't cartoon cutesy PJ's or leggings and an old t-shirt.
Once I hit my 'aha' moment I set about creating the vision for Ostara.
Each collection is lovingly dreamed up and designed by me. My inspiration comes greatly from nature, water and my experiences & emotions. From my family moving from the UK to Australia as a toddler, I always loved travel, the ocean and exploring new places (including my new second home - Nigeria). For me, fashion and wearing prints is a huge form of expression.
Another motivator for me starting Ostara is that it gives me the opportunity to give back - I don't believe you need to be a millionaire to make a difference. We have recently partnered with Wateraid and committed to donating $1 from every order to improve global access to clean water.
