Brand Story

Closet Children is the dreamchild of Rachael Cheong. In the cradle of her studio, she weaves and welds fairy tales into fantastical objects that amplify the power of their bearers.

Originally the name of her teenage fashion blog, the name Closet Children is Rachael’s homage to her adolescent beginnings, where she first delved into documenting clothes, fantasy and the transformative abilities of dressing up.

Enamoured by the bejewelled metamorphic ornaments of magical girl heroines, Rachael creates hardwear and softwear armour for the body, layering hyper-femme gossamer softness with jagged, steely presentation.  Closet Children encapsulates the transformative power of dressup and self-adornment. Our pieces grant their owners aegis, and audacity. Imbued with the tension between girlish wonder and the killer instincts of an iron maiden, we ensure the wearer is always ready for battle.

Our Ethos

We value the creative process as much as the end product. Each product goes through hours of experimentation before it arrives at its final form. We love to call our pieces "creatures" at times because they have a life of their own but merge beautifully with their "hosts" and their personal style.

It's all about character creation with Closet Children. We support all fashion fantasies and provide the finishing touches to any character. Our pieces ensure envious glances but never letting anyone come too close.

ACKNOWLEDGING LABOUR IS IMPORTANT TO US. WE MAKE EVERYTHING IN HOUSE AT THE MOMENT and ensure all hands are paid fairly. In the event of Future ventures of manufacturing we make sure that THE Artisans are working in ethical conditions with fair pay.

Our pieces are handmade just for you, and we delight in offering options to our wielders. Ask yourself: what makes you feel strong and sanguine, what makes your heart sing? Is it lace, spikes, or extra crystals? If there’s a special amulet of your dreams you’ve always wanted, let us know. We may be able to manifest it for you.
