A fashion entrepreneur has swapped out styling television celebrities to designing surgical scrubs for health professionals.
Business owner Rebecca Lau Marsh, from Sydney, joined forces with twin veterinarians Dr Audrey and Alison Shen to launch 21 Scrubs – a stylish range of scrubs that are both comfortable and practical.
The business was born when the Shen twins became increasingly frustrated after spending everyday working in uncomfortable, ill-fitting scrubs.
The twins approached close friend Rebecca, who previously launched online bridal retailer White Runway, to bring the idea life.

Dr Audrey said the original scrubs would attract pet hair and absorb liquids, stains and smells throughout the day – and weren’t stylish.
‘We understand that scrubs have to be practical. However, practicality doesn’t mean you have to compromise on looking fashionable and feeling good,’ she said.
Rebecca swiftly jumped on board the idea of recreating the traditional scrubs with added style and substance.
Rebecca’s previous business saw her dressing celebrities such as Australian television personality Sophie Monk and American actress Eva Longoria
‘I loved the idea of fashion in the operating theatre and I love a good makeover. I was excited to begin the process of reinventing the traditional scrub,’ Rebecca said.
‘We had a very clear vision to create workwear that was functional, that you could move in, was comfortable and of course flattering for all shapes and sizes.
‘We also wanted to create workwear that had an ‘all day to night’ look, that you can wear out after work or be seen wearing out of work.’
The brand officially launched last year and have already sold out of the signature jumpsuit twice.
The 21 Scrubs range is made from a lightweight fabric that rebels hair, liquid and smells
Due to the practical design, the scrubs are popular among a range of different industries, including medical, veterinary, dentistry, cosmetic, beauty and hairdressing (pictured: Dr Audrey and Alison Shen)
The popular ’21 jumpsuit’ is made from a stretchy, lightweight fabric, features pockets for pens, keycard holders and a stethoscope, and has a flattering V-neckline.
It retails online for $160, is available in three different colours – black, navy and olive green – and is made to suit a range of sizes from XS to XXL.
Due to the practical design, the scrubs are popular among a range of different industries, including medical, veterinary, dentistry, cosmetic, beauty and hairdressing.
In future the brand hopes to break into the US market, which is reported to be worth $10 billion and growing.
