The 2014 Kiwiana Collection

Clothing for sale with a New Zealand flavour exhibiting my love for New Zealand and the native bush and bird life that abounds. Hand made with care for Sasha and Gregor. All clothing has overlocked/serged seams, and lined bodices for the dresses and hand sewn hems.

The dresses with the birds on them feature some of my favourite birds, the little Fantail, the Kiwi, Tui and wood Pigeon to name a few.  The colours are evocative of the native bush
