Better than the Big Brands!
I just wanted to share a story with you about when I wore my sunshine garden dress about two weeks ago. I was with my two girlfriends who LOVE Review. Like, really love, like an obsession!! I also like (meh) Review but they don’t accommodate plus size and their 16 is questionable, but I’m not going to rain on their parade. We were all out for lunch and some shopping and they were wearing Review dresses and I put on my Kablooie. Now don’t get me wrong, three gals frocked up is a sight on a Monday and we were turning heads! But, I was the only one who received compliments on my outfit, FIVE actually! One lady in particular stopped her car in the car park, held up traffic to ask me where I got my dress. I’ve never yelled KABLOOIE quite so loud before but she got it!
I want them ALL
My breastfeeding dress arrived and I LOVE IT! So comfy and easy to feed in and the shape is just so perfect! Not a shapeless sack but also not super clingy on my mum tum! Amazing! Also pockets! Why do people even make dresses without pockets!? You've done such an amazing job. Thank you! No more boring navy/black/grey or just stripes for this Mumma! I wish I could have one in every print.

In love with the new Breastfeeding Dress
Just wanted to say thank you for such amazing breastfeeding dresses! They have been indispensable since we arrived in Singapore. Not many people breastfeed in public here and I can discreetly breastfeed my thirsty boy without sitting in a hot nursing room staring at a wall.
The knee length is perfect for wrangling two kids and it is comfy to wear in the endless heat and humidity. I can dress them up or down and most importantly I feel like “me” rather than a daggy mama.

My Dream Dress!
Excuse the vanity shots but I just wanted you to know your AMAZING dress has found her spiritual home (and is getting lots of compliments) in Palm Springs ✨🌵💜 The dreamiest dress for the dreamiest destination!
Vibrant and Joyful
The only thing more vibrant and joyful than a Kablooie piece is Keneena herself. An amazing woman and an incredible brand. Thanks for creating clothes that stand out and make everybody happy!

A Whole Lotta Happy!
Every time I purchase a vibrant, unique and fabulously handmade product from Keneena, I know that so much joy will be shared with the world. From her quirky designs to her fabulous collaborations with Australian artists, I know that when I wear Kablooie, strangers will stop me in my tracks. Thank you Keneena for making Australian handmade products that inject a whole lotta happiness!

Love the Customisation - more than 5 stars!
Couldn’t love my ever growing Kablooie Collection more. Love that you can add length and Keneena is so accomodating with any requests as well. Short turn around time, if I could give more than 5 * I would! ✔️

So much fun - and got them sized down.
I absolutely LOVE my Kablooie dresses not only because the prints are SO MUCH FUN but because they fit sooo well and are beautifully made! Being smaller than the usual size 6, i find it hard to buy dresses that don't swamp me. I was so impressed Keneena was more than happy to size down my dresses to ensure they me perfectly! Thankyou!

KA BOOM in our Kablooie!!!
I'm that daggy mum that puts her children in matching clothes, so when I saw your most recent release for Girt Squad I knew I had to match us all! It's frigging fabulous!!! We all love our items!! Statement. Colour. Fun.

I am completely in love with my first ever Kablooie dress! I was a bit nervous about choosing the right size, so I ordered some samples to try on. They were shipped super quick and after a try on I was ready to order! Keneena was so lovely, the design I wanted (jersey rainbows) was sold out, but she checked her left over fabric and let me know that there was enough for a dress. Customising the dress was so easy, and it is such a great fit and so incredibly comfy. I am looking forward to increasing my Kablooie collection! Thank you so much! <3
Hi Jen - I'm thrilled that you love your dress and your experience with Kablooie, especially my new try before you buy process. It's great to know it's working as it was intended and I hope your new dress brings you joy every time you put it on!!
I ordered a set (pants and shirt) from the faces line. And this may not make sense to anyone else but me but I have never ever had an connection with clothing like that as an adult!
From the moment I opened the package and put them on....My mind went straight to my grandmother who handsew most of our clothes as kids during sovient union times when there just wasn´t much available. With so much love and good wishes, she always wanted us to look our best. Of course even the colourful faces pattern looked like something she would use for us back then:D It all felt so much like hers.
And now every time i wear them I feel like a kid again and it always makes me think of my childhood and vanaema. She is 82 now and can´t sew anymore due to a stroke she suffered a couple of years ago. But she is still every bit of a badass and such an inspiration,
And after that all is left to do is go outside and plaaaaaaaay 😀
Wow Reena, your review blew me away! Your grandmother sounds amazing - and that Kablooie can play a little part in bringing you so much joy and nostalgia - I'm thrilled. Thanks so much for your positive review!
I recently got my Brisvegas dress. When I saw the print online, I knew I had to have it. When the dress arrived, it was even better than I expected. It fits like a dream, the textile is nice and soft and as 100% cotton it wears well and is nice and cool.
I love the beautiful print and love that I will wear it constantly.
A great local label promoting slow fashion! My next dress has already been ordered with some pants, a shirt and hat all in my Wishlist!
Eileen, that is SOOO fabulous! I'm glad you love that print, it's one I have wanted to have created for such a long time, and I love seeing people wear it - enjoy every piece, I hope they all bring you joy!
My first Kablooie dresses arrived yesterday & they are incredible! They actually look even better than on the website. The colours are so vibrant. They're both so comfortable & a perfect fit. I was even looking forward to going to work so I could wear them. First though, I need to order some more. Thank you Kablooie!
Wow Kristen, I'm so happy you love them - exceeding expectations is my favourite thing - here's hoping they bring you happiness for a long time to come!
Upon hearing my daughter was pregnant with her fourth precious baby, I was excited to buy her the breastfeeding Australia print dress for her birthday - she absolutely loved it! Thank you!
Wendy, this is something I love so much - having Kablooie pieces be a part of special memories and milestones in peoples lives - thank you for choosing Kablooie, I'm so glad your daughter loved it! (and congratulations Grandma!!)
I cannot recommend these incredible breastfeeding dresses enough! The jersey is so soft and squishy but durable, and the designs are so fun. These are my favourite clothes ever. 🥰
Sarah, you're one of my favourites - thanks for loving Kablooie and being one of the first to try the breastfeeding dresses - I hope they keep bringing you joy!
Where have you been all my life!? Comfy, colourful well made and love the customisation. Now I need alllll the prints. Fabulous small business!!
Charlotte, I'm so glad you've become a Kablooie fan, thank you so much for the positive feedback, YAY!
I already have about a million Kablooie items, but my new Rainbow in the Rain maxi babydoll breastfeeding dress is my absolute favourite!
It's super soft and stretch, vibrant and comfortable. The breastfeeding access is easy. Love it so much!
Sarah that is the BEST news ever, I'd love to see a photo sometime, I bet you look STUNNING 😍😍
I had never heard the term dopamine dressing before and I read about it somewhere recently. That instant feeling of joy and happiness you get when you put on a piece of clothing that not only is a fabulous fabric but feels great and you feel great in. Well this dreas I bought from Keneena did exactly that for me and I am truly grateful. Thanks so much for you beautiful work! It's also great to have the option of clothing for all sizes and materials that just feel like me!
Amye I am so thrilled your piece brought you joy - thank you so much for your feedback, it means the world!!
I got my third Kablooie dress for Christmas (Aussie Birds Jersey) and I love them all. They're all super comfortable, and a great fit. I love the range of patterns and it is nice to be supporting such a great small business. Every order has gone very smoothly and arrived in a reasonable timeframe. Will be definitely be getting another one, next time I need a new dress.
Wow, Gillian I'm so happy you love your dresses! Thank you so much for the fabulous review - you're a star
I am a bit fussy!
I like to have things that not just everyone has. I like to wear colour that smacks you so hard it is worth getting up in the morning just to get dressed. And, all of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe are Kablooie!
No other items get noticed or complimented as much. They wash and wear like a dream, They are whimsical and fun, they are customisable. What more could you want?
Customer for life x
Tanya, you're one of my favourites! I love your style and you're always a dream to make things for - may you live long and colourfully!!
I received my tiger baby doll dress in the mail today. 5 stars just for the packaging before I even got a chance to try on the dress. A super cute surprise face mask was so exciting and definitely needed in Melbourne!
The Dress slipped on so perfectly. It's so beautifully made. The fabric is breathable and comfortable and the dress is so pretty I kept doing twirls around the house. Favourite thing I've bought this year!! Also LOVE the fabric in the pockets.
First item I've bought from here but definitely not the last!
Sophie, I am so thrilled you’re happy with your dress, that one is SUCH a fabulous pick and I hope you twirl for many years to come!
Absolutely love these dresses - great fit, cute prints and POCKETS.
Excellent customer service xx
Thank you much Rhi - mutual pocket love here! 👏🏽👏🏽
I am now the proud owner of 3 Kablooie dresses and each time I wear them I know I’m going to have a good day. People at work stop to talk about the fabrics, and I always seem to get more smiles when I’m wearing them. Who knew that a dress would add so much joy in my life??!
Hi Steph , what a thrill reading your review - you've made my day!!
My name is Carla and I am a Kablooie Addict!
I have so many dresses that fill me with joy - wearing a Kablooie is the epitome of dopamine dressing. It’s impossible not to be happy wearing such bright, vibrant clothes.
Oh Carla this makes me smile all over - thank you for the your feedback and I'm thrilled you love your Kablooie!
I stalked Kablooie for a good 6 months on Facebook and Insta and at least one email about sizing before I went to Kaneena's pop-up shop in 2019. I knew the prints were fabulous, the measurements were solid, the photos of many different shaped and sized models were reassuring but I needed that reassurance of shape, feel and sizing to make sure my investment was wise. And, boobs.
At the pop-up I saw fabulous, everyday people showcasing the amazing dresses, met some beautiful people (still swoony over chatting with Ellie Whittaker) and then I managed to get TWO amazing sale items IN MY SIZE - hello Sunshine Garden and Faces regular dresses! The good quality woven cotton has held up for over 12 months and countless washes (and not many irons...). They still amaze people every time I wear them. I love them and they are my go-to.
I've since picked up a few other pieces including family Christmas outfits of Deck the Prawns, Aussie Birds and special collab for This is Australia print boardshorts.
I love that I can support a local business and a local network of businesses and women. I love that it's not the same as everyone else. I love that I can have confidence that a size 18 will fit and flatter with the pattern graded for plus sizes (and boobs). I love there are options for extra hem length, extra sleeve length, lowering the neckline - no-one else gives that level of customisation! I love that sometimes I spill food down my front and no one notices... I love that the clothes will last. I love how helpful Kaneena is and the little community she has built.
Oh wow, I know I have said this before but your review REALLY did make my day today. Thank you for sharing your experience for other customers and taking the time to write such lovely feedback - it means the world to me to know you love your Kablooie gear. THANKYOU!
I LIVE in my Kablooie breastfeeding dresses, and now my Showtime breastfeeding top. I have three dresses and they are perfect - pockets for the essentials (why do so many women’s clothes STILL not have pockets - thank you the patriarchy...), comfy fit and so easy to feed in anytime and anywhere with no fiddly zips that claim to be able to be operated with one hand! I haven’t even mentioned the prints yet - breastfeeding clothes that aren’t black, grey or striped! Luxury and I feel like my normal colourful self again! I want one in every print, now I’m heading back to work in a couple of weeks perhaps I will do that....!
Hannah I am thrilled that you love your dresses, this is exactly why I spent so long trying to develop a breastfeeding dress for my range - so you could feed without sacrificing your own style and your comfort and convenience! Thank you so much.
I can't believe I haven't left a review before now (I didn't realise it was here before or I would have left 20 by now)
I found Kablooie at a time where I couldn't find anything awesome to fit my body shape that reflected my personality. I felt uncomfortable in everything. Then I found Kablooie *insert oh ohhh oh ohhhh music here*. I very quickly accumulated a wardrobe full of website and custom pieces to wear. Needed bigger arm holes. No problem. Wanted a dress longer. No problem. Nothing is an issue. Everything is possible. Everything is worth every cent . Garments wash up well. Hold their shape.
Plus you get brilliant unique prints, bright colours, whilst being completely comfortable whilst looking awesome. Don't question... just buy. You won't regret it. Lisa x
Oh Lisa, you are one of my faves for a reason - such a lovely customer, you’re a joy to dress and I love seeing how you style each piece. Thank you so much for the review!
I have the all eyes on me skirt and people love it! I love it! I get compliments wherever I go! It's super comfy, wears well, fun, and freaky fresh! Extra points for giant snack holes aka pockets 5 out of 5!
Jessica thank you so much for your review, it truly absolutely made my day, that print is SO fun! 🎉🎉
Absolutely Love my gone coastal dress. I’ve had so much wear out of it!!!
Nearly every time I wear it I get comments and people asking where I got such a beautiful dress. You rock Kablooie!
Thanks for the review Sally, that makes me so happy!
Just wanted to rant about how many comments I get wearing the Australia baby doll dress- well almost any Kablooie actually. I can’t go to the shops without a minimum of three ladies commenting about the Australia and it sits so beautifully, I feel amazing wearing it. I constantly have to either spell out the label and web directions or pass on a card if I have one. Reckon you can introduce a spotters fee or discount - I’d kill it if so. Really, just a way of saying thanks Keneena, for providing a fab range that are particularly great for teaching all year round. Well done! Pop a few more cards in to the orders. Blessings!
Naomi, thank you so much, your feedback means the world!!
I wore my Art Attack baby doll dress today and received A LOT of compliments. I’ve never felt so confident and femine in a dress. I added extra length to my dress and love the silhouette it gives my body. I’ve just ordered the Shapes Baby doll dress because I love my Art Attack one so much.
Hi Carly, to get back from holidays to your lovely review was incredible. Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback, I hope you get heaps of happiness from every wear!!Keneena
I’m so looking forward to wearing the new Yum Cha top this season. Let me tell you, that l work as an aid at a special school and your beautiful tops are my uniform each day for the week!!! The kids and staff go crazy for them, and my class have been trying to guess what print I'm going to wear the next day!!!l l look like the grooviest 48 year old woman there!!! Also I've had to put your details up on the notice board because everyone is asking me where and how I got them! Anyway l feel amazing wearing your designs, so thanks for producing such high quality garments.
Trisia you LEGEND - I'm so glad you love them!
What can I say! I get compliments almost daily ( I wear my Kablooie dresses EVERYDAY)
The quality is beyond amazing and the dresses are so comfortable to wear and I feel fabulous wearing them!
I don’t own enough Kablooie dresses - my husband thinks differently 😉
I wait for new collections to be launched LOVE LOVE LOVE
Thank you so much Annie, I love seeing the designs you pick and the joy you get from them!
I was SUPER lucky to score a desert peaks dress in Season 3 of Girt Squad - and then waited several months to wear it on my birthday and it was SO worth it. The quality is beautiful, she shape is flattering and it is heaven to wear. Thank you for making my birthday so special.
Caitlin I’m so happy - and seriously honoured when my dresses are your pick for your very special days! Thanks so much for the review.....
I own 5 wonderful Kablooie products now! The lush skirt, the faces skirt, Aussie birds babydoll, banana for mangoes babydoll and crazy cat lady dress....no.6 is on the way....eyes on you skirt!
Needless to say i love kablooie, the quality, the beautiful bright fabrics and the wonderful customer service is all fantastic. I'm hooked and love Kablooie a lot. Buy a kablooie it will change your life!
Jenny, this makes me so happy, I’m thrilled that you love your pieces!
I LOVE all of my Kablooie items. I have a maxi skirt, 3 regular length skirts, one top (and 2 on the way!)
The fabric is such good quality, crisp and fresh. The colours and patterns that Kaneena choose are amazing.
The fits are generous and functional. I am a new mum and I am able to maintain a sense of style and funkiness to my day to day life without compromising on function. The wide opening for the top is great, I can lift my shirt up to breastfeed if I need to!
Thank you Kaneena for your amazing fashion! I can’t wait to add to my collections!
Bree, I’m so so thrilled by your feedback, that’s exactly what Kablooie is all about - fun fashion that makes you deep down happy! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review!Keneena
My Lush dress arrived today; am swooning over its lush-i-ness. It is a perfect fit for me; beautifully sewn, and it has POCKETS!! Not only pockets, but pockets of a useable, hold your car keys and your coffee money, and a hankie, size pockets. And the Lush fabric pattern - stunning!
What's not to love about clothing that fits and makes one do a happy dance!
[When trying on clothes I usually start with a size 12, so took FAQ advice and sized down to a 10.]
Annie, you’re wonderful! Thanks so much for leaving a review, so useful for other shoppers and it COMPLETELY made my day!
AMAZING!! There's no other word for it. I feel fabulous wearing your clothes, and all the compliments I get are just icing on the cake. Thank you so so much ❤️😍
Oh wow, you’ve completely made my day Rhiannon, thank you so much!!
I have skirts from Keeneena for both myself and my daughter, and they are AMAZING! Best of all, the prints mean that I never iron them.... hehehe!!!!! #ssshhhhh
Haha so glad you love them Cassie - gotta love the camouflage of big prints!! 😍😍😂
