The PAS Group was established in 2004 to capitalise on the fragmented nature of the apparel industry in Australia.  The group has progressively acquired a diversified portfolio of well established brands as part of its strategy.  As a result The PAS Group is one of Australia’s largest apparel businesses with an established business model and platform providing significant scale, infrastructure and capability to exploit opportunities.

The PAS Group covers both the retail and wholesale segments of the market and has a rapidly growing online business.  The group has 280 retail stores with the key retail brands being Review and Black Pepper.  The group recently acquired White Runway, an online occasion wear business with a growing number of showrooms both in Australia and internationally.

The group wholesales a number of brands into department stores, discount department stores, specialty retailers as well as approximately 800 independent retailers.  The key wholesale brands include the recently acquired JETS swimwear and activewear business as well as Yarra Trail, Marco Polo, Breakaway, Black Pepper, Mooks and World Industries.  Our recently formed sports division with internationally recognised brands such as Everlast, Dunlop, Slazenger and Karrimor also supply product on a wholesale basis.

Our Designworks division based in Hawthorn, Victoria, is a leading supplier of innovative fashion apparel for major retailers and includes a number of brands and is one of Australia’s leading licensing businesses.

Our Mount Waverley, Victoria, based head office houses a number brands as well as the corporate office.  JETS and White Runway are Sydney based.

The group currently employs in excess of 1,400 employees.

The PAS Group places a high level of importance on social and ethical compliance and we go to great effort to ensure all our products are ethically sourced and manufactured.
We conduct regular factory audits ensuring all suppliers are compliant with minimum standards (including minimum wages, ethical sourcing and factory working conditions).  If we find any evidence of unethical or non-compliance to minimum standards we take action by ceasing to place future orders with that company until they prove their standards are at required levels.  If they fail to prove this, then we cease supply.
