WHAT IS GENKSTASY?
Genkstasy is a state of being in deep harmony with ones-self and ones surroundings. Born from the merging of Ecstasy (rapturous elation, a state of trance-like being) and Genki (from Japanese 元気, meaning life-force, spirit, energy).
It stands for solid communities; families built on spirit connection rather than blood. For evolution, for growth, for moments spent in pure being, and for the future we will build together:
Bright. Strong. Exalting.
Formed in 2017, Genkstasy ethically and sustainably creates clothing that fits unique and beautiful bodies from all over the gender spectrum. With their custom mades and signiature pieces they spark conversations and bring joy to those who wear them.
Bright Freedom: an honouring of our roots, of this country, and a deepening of our exploration of play as a means of self-discovery and healing.
The colours in 'Bright Freedom' are inspired by our dear friend Marty's rock climbing harness, he'd had it since he was a kid in the 80s and wore it while he taught us how to climb too. He instilled in us a love of 'the crag' and gave us a new way to explore this land we so love. Marty was such an inspiringly kind and unique human, and a strong advocate for gender inclusivity and exploration.
This collection is a tribute to all those who inspire us with their kindness, strength, and grace, with their thirst to explore, to learn, and to grow.
We are stars, you can’t put us in boxes.
