about

Helen O’Connor

Helen O’Connor founded Thurley in 2006 in the pursuit of beauty, creativity and handcraft.
Helen collaborates with international artisans to develop innovative techniques and fabrics and brings the silhouettes to life in Australia with her dedicated and passionate team that have worked together for over a decade.

With decades of experience draping and tailoring garments to fit the female body, the collection is a natural progression for O’Connor, with each piece created by hand on the stand and woven around the female form.

O’Connor has also created her collection with an environmental conscience and reduced carbon footprint in mind - each piece is designed, sampled and made locally in Melbourne.
