Designers Madeleine Harman and Jessica Grubisa launched their sophisticated label in 2014 and made their New Zealand Fashion Week debut last year. This debut proved to be one of the most talked about shows of the week. This year they had the prestigious honour of being presented by Mercedes-Benz, only the third New Zealand label to have that recognition which includes long-standing brands Trelise Cooper and Kate Sylvester.
Their opening show was full of opulent gold tones, ruffles and shimmering silks, beautiful cut trouser suits and tiered pleated dresses. Colours ranged from warm burgundy, rose, copper, to beige, grey, ivory and black.
