Streetwear label Tsubi is the brain-child of a group of friends from Sydney's northern beaches. Dan Single, George Gorrow, Gareth Moody and Oskar Wright were playing in a band and couldn't find any suitable clothes to wear on stage, so they made their own.
Their creations were so innovative, they were asked to show them at Mercedes Fashion Week in May 2001, where they caused a stir when they released 169 live rats onto the catwalk. Inspired by art, poetry, street people, politics, music and film, Tsubi creates clothes with a heavy dose of attitude.Tsubi hit the fashion world with a bang soon after the event with no shortage of fans eagerly buying their gear.
