Founder of Toby Heart Ginger, Zoi, has been in the thick of it for nearly 10 years, originally starting out by launching her own Wholesale Agency in Brisbane.
After working closely with retailers and customers during this period, Zoi quickly realised there was a gap in the market, which could easily be filled, with the launch of her own Label. THG was born!
High quality, trend based styles with reasonable price tags is the core of THG. Launching new collections frequently is important for for the label, but it is just as important for the girls to make sure their designs are timeless and can be worn for multiple seasons.
