All About Goomo?
Founded in 1998, Goomo initially made its debut at the local Queenscliff market. Since then, we have expanded our reach, travelling across the south and east of Australia to showcase and sell our Australian-made products. Moreover, we have embraced the digital realm, offering online sales and international shipping for added convenience.
The founder of Goomo, Kez Jarecki, pursued her passion for fashion design and graduated with an Associate Diploma in Fashion Design and Production from The Gordon in Geelong. After completing her studies, Kez ventured into the commercial fashion world and then returned to The Gordon, completing an Advanced Diploma in Vocational and Education Training in order to teach within the Fashion Department. Her vocation only deepened her appreciation for Australian-made products; recognising the disparity between the quality of locally-made products and imports, Kez decided to bridge this gap.
Goomo came to life in 1998 in a small home studio, where she tirelessly sewed garments using around seven industrial machines. This marked the birth of Goomo, driven by the vision to offer high-quality Australian-made products that could rival their imported counterparts.
Once the products were ready, Kez sought a helping hand in selling them, and that’s where her husband, Ted, stepped in. With his can-do attitude, Ted had a knack for bringing to life any display Kez envisioned. Together, they became a formidable team, driving the success of the small business.
Fast forward to 2023, and Goomo has experienced significant growth. Alongside this success, Kez and Ted’s family has also expanded with the arrival of twin daughters. Fate brought forth the perfect fit as both daughters pursued careers in marketing and visual arts, enabling them to contribute to sales, production, and marketing. With the family’s combined talents and expertise, Goomo is poised for even greater achievements in the future. Goomo’s goal: World Domination!
