Flic and Paul loved sharing the Cargo Crew story with Peter Switzer, from its humble beginnings as a boutique Melbourne fashion label, to a Telstra Small Business Award Winning and ever-expanding Modern Uniform wholesaler, that has seen the company grow in two years from a staff of 8 to 20 employees. In the interview, they discuss business insights and company growth, and the evolution of the Cargo Crew brand which has attracted the attention of both national and international businesses. After five years of developing a label in the fashion industry, Felicity saw a gap in the uniform market, and “realised the idea of using my design abilities and taking that to a corporate offering”.
