the name pays homage to the designers embracing their calling.


Founded in 2012 by best friends Katie McVeigh and Alicia Arcuri, Pasduchas is a contemporary Australian brand dedicated to dressing the modern woman. From the onset of humble origins operating out of the same factory in which the Pasduchas product was made, a unique sense of relaxed femininity has become the soul of the brand’s identity and recognisably the signature of the duo’s bespoke handwriting. Pasduchas is driven by a tight team of dedicated creatives with a committed hands on approach and an unwavering love for original and innovative design.

From humble beginings

Still based and operating out of Sydney Australia, the brand continues to evolve it’s offering of chic occasional pieces with the inclusion of elevated bridesmaid options as well as relaxed ready to wear capsules for desk to dusk. Each collection embodies a balance of seamless femininity with a sophisticated edge. There is a playful spirit in the exclusive prints used, and a timeless nature to the palettes that tie them together. Well crafted and ‘love forever’ pieces are at the forefront of each collection fused with a lighthearted approach to provide women with a wardrobe of memories of which their lives are lived in.

into the future

Our responsible business journey is forged in the empowering of the very team who steer it while partnering only with skilled artisans who believe in the same. There is a shared love for life that remains at the heart of everything we do. As we continue to flourish, we are incredibly proud and humbled to work alongside those that have been a part of our journey so far, and look forward to continuing to tell our story through our collections each season.
