Judith Treanor founder of Temples and Markets and Beach Kaftans

BeachKaftans and Resort Fashion is a fashion concept created by Judith Treanor, founder of established curated store for ethical gifts Temples and Markets.

Retail, fashion and design is in Judith's blood. Originating in the UK, she spent several years working in the Buying and Merchandising departments of House of Fraser, Harrods and Debenhams; essentially she has been sourcing suppliers and product for almost 30 years. 

In 1997 Judith left England as a slightly older than average backpacker to explore the world before settling in Sydney, Australia. It was during those travels that South East Asia found its special place in her heart and never left. The passion for S.E Asian design and creativity led her to establish Temples and Markets in 2015. The store now has a worldwide customer base.

Every year since conception of Temples and Markets, Judith has merged offline retail with online retail through pop up stores in Sydney. She curates shared pop up shops bringing together complimentary brands.  She formalised these Pop Ups into a sharing phenomenon, called The Pop Up Collective. Business owners share retail space, staffing and rent. Judith has been curating these shared pop ups since 2016. To attract a fashion-loving customer to the pop up shops, Judith brought in personally sourced fashion under her own brand Temples and Markets. This is the fashion you'll find here at Beach Kaftans and Resort Fashion. 

Fashion here is affordable, timeless, summer beachy holiday fashion. One size kaftans, tunics, jumpsuits, throw on dresses for style loving ladies over 25. 

If you love the clothes here and the accessories at Temples and Markets you may well love to go shopping with Judith! She will be co-hosting an ethical shopping tour for women to Vietnam once international travel has opened again, hopefully in late 2021.  For more info head to www.shopeatloveourvietnam.com
