We loved the subtly samurai feel to your collection at last year's fashion week. Where do you find inspiration for each collection?
You can be inspired at any time in any place. Life is inspirational! And the lives of others or stories they have told.
What can we be proud of in New Zealand Fashion?
That we are an incredibly fashion aware country, for the small population we do well!
Complete this sentence: New Zealand fashion needs more.....
People interested in working in the back bone of the industry, it takes great skill to sew a beautiful garment, its a career worth pursuing.
Is there such thing as a fashion crime or does anything go?
I think now anything goes, its too narrow-minded to judge new ideas!
Which designers do you admire?
Comme Des Garcons, Bernhard Willhelm, Rick Owens
Other than NOM*d, what shows are you personally excited to see?
I usually don’t get to see other designers shows cos soon as we are done, we are busy selling to our existing clients. After showtime its showing time! Of course, Zambesi is consistently great.
