Our History

Hi I'm Mary Santos, sole owner and a main creator of Design 2 Change  As you can see my shadow taking photo of my first sewing studio. I thought to share my journey of how I started Design 2 Change...

In 2018 Design 2 Change was only an alteration and then the following year 2019 became a small production and custom made service at Belmore NSW. We have been supporting our clients by sharing our knowledge and experience in upcycling their own personalised garments. We had to open a sewing workshop for parents who are excited and motivated to save their garments and taught them how to do their own alteration.

Due to the current CoVid situation, Design 2 Change made the decision to close the studio at Belmore and move to Liverpool area. Since we gained our knowledge and experience in fashion and design, we finally change our business model and decided to do our own local clothing brand label.

At this current moment.........

Everything about Design 2 Change revolves around our commitment in advocating and promoting awareness in accessibility, functionality, inclusivity, diversity, adaptability and dignity with beauty in an adaptive world of clothing and accessories.

We offer our products and services for all heights and sizes (individual/commercial) especially people  who has limited mobility, hand dexterity, athritis, parkinson disease, small person, people with short limbs and all types of disabilityof our every individual client while making sure they have their adaptive clothing collection are available for made to order.

What we Do?

We give our clients an opportunities in personalising their own adaptive and accessible wardrobe collection and making sure that they can sell or wear their precious garments for a lifetime until they decided to upcycle or do some alteration with it.
