Townsville Fashion Studio

Kharico is a small but expanding Townsville based boutique fashion design studio that specialises in designing and manufacturing clothes for people who, because of illness, injury or disability have special clothing requirements.

Our aim at Kharico is to provide a range of clothing options merging comfort and style which are suited to the Australian climate.

Design and manufacture of garments to meet the clothing needs of those with special requirements. Garments completed to date include skirts for those using diabetic pumps, mastectomy bras, tops and swimwear, panties and a range of day clothing.

Alterations and modifications to existing clothing. This includes addition of fasteners such as press-studs, zippers, or Velcro, to make dressing easier as well as restitching seam and hem lines to ensure a better fit.
Learn to sew classes for those who want to learn how to make garments or complete their own modifications either for themselves or their family.
The owner, Dianne Hodge, is a qualified and experienced occupational therapist and fashion designer who can provide you with lots of tips and hints about dressing and clothing modifications.
