Inspired by literature, designed for real life. One of New Zealand’s premier fashion designers, Kate Sylvester often cites books and writers as key to her collections, but her designs are not so lofty as to be unwearable. Known for her immaculate tailoring and high concept shows, Sylvester’s clothes are designed to be worn. Loved by women who are creative, individual and independent, the label is sophisticated, feminine and ironic. Sylvester says her clothes are for women who are ‘smart enough to know that it’s far more provocative and stylish to be subtly sexy and have a sense of humour about dressing up’. We love it when fashion and wit collide!
