Newtown-natives, Luisa Franco and John Valastro have created Madge Goods: a brand creating limited run print-based fashion and homewares, aimed at those who wear their creative selves on the outside.
Named after their youngest daughter Magenta, Madge Goods has been a labour of love for the pair - partners in business and life, who met on the job 16 years ago working as broadcast designers.
Prior to working in textiles, Luisa and John for close to 20 years worked as successful graphic designers in their own design studio. With a life long love of design, 2016 brought the brave change to create textiles for relaxed easy everyday clothing and goods allowing a new canvas for their bold, contemporary and creative pattern designs. Their unique print designs are digitally and hand screen printed, cut and made in locally in Australia.
Madge Goods is sold out of their shopfront at Australia Street, Newtown, Sydney.
