About Oishi-m

Oishi-m’s [Oy-shee-em] limited edition garments are a mix of contemporary styling with a vintage infusion. Fresh, unpredictable colours, styles and prints help to create surprise and mystery. It’s fun and a little loud and filled with energy and intrigue, just like the newborn babies and busy munchkins who wear their garments.

Oishi-m is about letting children be children. Anything goes, their Australian designed eclectic infusion of unashamedly clashing mixes of colours and patterns mean that it's always got a touch of quirk. It can be dressed up or dressed down, and each combination of outfits showcases how unique we all are.

Little one’s can vary in size, shape and growth rates. With this in mind, their garments are designed to accommodate these variances catering for both skinny mini’s and chubba bubba's catering from 3 months to 8 years.

We would love the world to be a better place because of businesses like ours. We believe that businesses can serve more than just it's shareholders and be a force for good. Becoming a B Corp is an exciting milestone for Oishi-m to be part of the movement of shared and durable prosperity for the world around us.
