A conscious, everyday uniform

Founder and Creative Director Shiv Rennie began The One Six in 2022 to solve a challenge - the decision fatigue she, like many women, faced each day when trying to choose *just* the right look.

A time-poor entrepreneurial mum of three, her attention was drawn to how she could curate high rotation, everyday luxury that would help give her, and women everywhere, much-needed time and headspace back.

Equally born out of frustration with the abhorrent waste of the fast fashion industry, the label exists to be an antidote to rampant consumerism by embracing environmental sustainability, social responsibility and local craftsmanship - in order to leave a better future for generations to come.

Exuding a quiet luxury, the label’s limited edition pieces are intended to last and be worn time and time again. Rennie's first and second slowly produced collections, the AW23 ‘Premiere’ and SS23 'Bleuge', received strong pickup and positive support, featuring in marie claire, the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian Women’s Weekly, WHO Magazine, and now stocked in retailers in Australia and overseas.

The One Six : an effortless everyday uniform, grounded in timeless tailoring, redefined elegance and built-to-last, conscious essentials. Exclusively crafted in small quantities in Australia, by ethical manufacturers, from only handpicked and carefully chosen 'deadstock', natural, organic and/or certified materials.

Behind the name:

Each day, a blank canvas...

The average woman spends at least 16 minutes - ‘one six’ - every weekday morning deciding what to wear.*

In a world filled with choice, decision fatigue adds to the daily pressures all women face.

The One Six is your curated collection of wardrobe staples that removes the first hurdle in the day without substituting style and expression.

Our meticulously designed and ethically crafted range is designed to make the most of your time and your wardrobe.

Some of our pieces take up to 12 months to design, sample, make, amend and then refine some more. That, not to mention the far reaching impact fast fashion is having on our environment, is why we only release pieces slowly, and thoughtfully.We pay attention to every single detail - so you don’t have to.

Making creating the right look, each day, more effortless.
