Must-have pieces that bring art to life

Fashion and art are inseparable. At Consequence of Change, we have a purpose that reaches beyond aesthetics. We create unique and stylish bags and provide a platform for emerging artists to step into the limelight. Each piece tells a story and says as much about the wearer as about the artwork. They’re bold, considered, and focused on a new approach to fashion.

Our carefully curated artists breathe life into moving canvases that start a conversation. Each piece is crafted with care, and actively encourages a new perspective on fashion. Our unique pieces are created with longevity in mind – this is not fast fashion. This is keep-and-love-forever, wearable art.

Art you can take anywhere

Our community has strong relationship with creativity, a meaningful connection with the environment and thinks beyond the superficial. They blaze their trail and lead with integrity to create a better world, living boldly with a love of bold, quirky aesthetics.

Join us on our mission to spread the joy of wearable art with heart.


More than just a fashion label

We are working every day to become as sustainable as possible. The materials we use, our exclusive smaller collection runs, and our packaging are focused on minimising the impact to our planet. Our creations are built to last and their limited nature elevates them to collector item status.

In addition to this, we support the upward social mobilisation of marginalised communities wherever we can. An initiative with our full support is the Sewing the Seeds project – a programme dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty for women in India. $1 from each Consequence of Change sale goes towards supporting this incredibly worthy foundation.

By purchasing a C of C piece, you are actively participating in the rising fortunes of others – both emerging artists and vulnerable communities. There is really no reason we can’t live responsibly and look good as we do it...

Georgina Forbes from Lordy Dordie Art loves to ceate happy, joyful, colourful, patterned, detailed with a twist of fun and the unexpected. She explores subjects from nature, still life, through to the absurdly abstract. Colour has always been a prominent visual component in her art due to its strong visual impact & its direct influence with her feelings and emotions. She believes colour is one of the most important elements that can be used to create life & heart in her artworks, people connect with colour.

“We curate bespoke wearable art bags in collaboration with emerging designers and artists. An illustration to be admired on the train, a bag you can tuck under your arm, swing across your shoulder, or carry on your back. An original piece just for you. This is Consequence of Change.
