We are Donald Stanley

Founded by Louisa Harris in 2016, Donald Stanley is single handedly challenging the fashion industry and creating unique clothing made for EVERYONE

“It’s always been important to me to include and honour people of all shapes and sizes in my designs. It was never in my thought process to have a select range of sizes and therefore exclude a whole group of people.   

As someone who found it a struggle finding clothes that I wanted to wear and felt comfortable in, I knew when creating this brand that it had to cater for everyone. 

I'm tired of the lack of inclusion in the fashion industry so this is my approach to making a difference in a big space filled with such damaging shopping experiences for so many (hello vanity sizing).

We all need to wear clothes so why not feel great while doing so?

My mission: It's simple really, to make people smile and feel like they’re meant to be wearing that dress!

"Size Inclusive Fashion because that's the way it should be"

Clothing created for everyone, not just the few!

Founder Louisa Harris launched Donald Stanley in 2016 because she was tired of seeing individuals having to compromise their fashion and style based on their size. That’s why for over 5 years Donald Stanley has one simple mission, to create beautiful, unique clothes for EVERYONE.

At Donald Stanley we're passionate about making sure that when you shop with us you enjoy the process every step of the way, knowing that you are buying from a brand who truly cares about you.
