Inspiration for me comes from life itself. Elements of Colour, Silhouettes, visual aspects, time & age, textiles, cultural diversities & most of all a fusion of Contemporary Composition that add that New Zealand only touch to my collections.
My work carries that unique New Zealand flavour , a reminder of home sweet home.
“Aotearoa-Island of the long white cloud,the land of plenty.”
“ Fashion a timeless expression of the mind.”
I have worked in the clothing industry for 27 years working in various fashion houses ,cutting & sample rooms working on costumes for the NZ film industy and even as the cuppa tea maker. I believe you must be prepared to do the hard yards in this industry and along the way you will carefully but slowly begin to learn the trade from Others along your journey.I come From the Bay Of plenty from a small town call Kawerau where I grew Up for 18 years of my life.Kawerau is always Home sweet home for me and I have many wonderful child hood memories there.My whanau are of Ngati Porou Ngati Awa and Te Arawa.
