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.   

 

A F Vandevorst

Belgian design team A.F. Vandevorst have come to define a new kind of laid-back cool. Filip Arickx and An Vandevorst are the duo that forms A.F. Vandevorst. Their paths crossed in 1987 whilst attending the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. After graduating in 1991, An became the assistant of Dries Van Noten, whilst Filip assisted Dirk Bikkembergs. It wasn't until 1998 that they decided to combine their imaginations in order to create a womenswear collection. After their second collection, AF Vandevorst was awarded the Venus de la Mode, a prestigious prize given to young designers at Paris Fashion Week. A year later they were invited to design the Ruffo Research collection for Spring-Summer and Autumn-Winter 2000, an accolade bestowed on young designers by the luxury Italian leather company Ruffo. Their designs mix both raw and sophisticated materials, juxtapose fluid and structured lines, and also incorporate embroideries and prints.
