Behind the Brand


I founded Tendresse Studio in mid-2021, after two decades working in product & brand development, across both luxury and high street brands. 

I’ve always had a love for beautiful, simple pieces, along with an expectation of high quality, natural fabric and premium craftmanship that justify the price tag.  I wanted to buy timeless items I would love, wear & style for years, but I was finding it increasingly difficult to find pieces that delivered on these elements, even at the luxury end of the market.

The brand reflects the style aesthetic of those I admire and my own personal style, which does not conform to the traditional notion of seasonal fashion collections.  Every piece created is designed to be a permanent part of the Tendresse Studio collection and a forever piece in your wardrobe - to be loved, worn & styled your way, season after season, for years to come.

Andrea Haynes, Founder


Tendresse Studio is dedicated to building a brand based on kindness and care, inspiring people to understand what they are buying - from fabric and production quality, to exclusivity and longevity of wear.



The design of each Tendresse Studio piece is understated, with considered detail.  We believe the pieces you own should have longevity in both design and quality, pieces to be styled season after season, for years to come.


All Tendresse Studio pieces are crafted from high quality natural fabrics, which are biodegradable.  Right now, our entire collection is crafted in pure silks purchased through Australian fabric houses.


Tendresse Studio is proudly owned, designed and made in Melbourne.

We commit to working closely with small, local makers to maintain our high-quality standards, which also allows us to nurture face-to-face relationships, simplify the production chain and mInimise our carbon footprint.


Tendresse Studio production is consciously limited or made-to-order, our intention is for every piece produced to have a home.


Silk Bags are produced bi-monthly and released on the 1st & 15th of each month.  Once sold out, they will then become available for pre-order for the next re-stock.  

Silk Wear is held in limited quantities for our most-loved pieces, with our made-to-order option otherwise available.  Made-to-order has an estimated dispatch date 4-8 weeks from order placement.

The website will indicate the availability for each piece, however we are always here to help with your special orders, fulfilment to meet an event date, questions or requests – contact us via the chat icon or email us
