NG

NG boutique collates the work of New Zealand and International designers whose work is either emerging in the world of high end fashion or is well established. All designers are carefully selected for their unique aesthetics, for their use of quality materials and production processes and for their artistic practices rather than their commercial brand.

Travelling to Paris fashion week, director and designer Sharon Ng, chooses clothing and accessories for discerning and NOT FOR SAFE DRESSERS who have a love of distinctive possessions and a passion for individual expression.

With an eye for artistic talent and a background in fashion design, Sharon Ng is particularly interested in supporting emerging designers whose work is relevant and contemporary and possesses the “timelessness” requisite of classicism.

The boutique is located within a renovated heritage building and operates alongside a contemporary jewellery gallery, a fine art gallery, architectural practice and graphic design business. It is a destination store that not only offers exquisite and exclusive products but offers an inspirational experience for all visitors who appreciate the merging of  quality traditional and modern workmanship.   

6x4

6x4 is a conceptual brand that takes its name from the dimensions of the label itself: 6 cm x 4 cm of the fabric stitched into the back of each garment. All manner of functional objects are produced under the label, from jewellery and clothing to furniture and home ware. Each piece is an unrepeatable. Often the materials are unique and the making processes experimental. Cultural histories, gender conventions and aesthetic contexts are taken apart and reconstructed into garments which acknowledge that human interactions with clothing are loaded with meaning and poetry. Clothing takes on a value of sentiment and memory as it creases to mimic the recesses of the body; as it tears and stains like the skin scars and stretches. Assimilate these garments, each as unique as any individual, into your personal identity and know that the visible self is a mirror to the invisible self.

It is the body of work of an individual who chooses to remain anonymous behind the label. It is the expression of the aesthetic universe this individual wants to create and inhabit. Manifest into physical reality from the realism of ideas and intentions through the making of simple functional objects, the philosophy of this universe is written in the physical and material attributes of the objects. For the creator this philosophy can be likened to the uncovering of an ancient buried city, exposed  to them by each act of creation. 

Our humaness is reflected in our objects and garments: to make tools and objects is an act that defines our species. The way we live with each other and with the earth is reflected in these artefacts of our survival, society and culture, these objects represent a way of living.
