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.   


Being. pieces use the frame of a basic article of clothing as a starting point to explore embellishing texture & shape.  Hand stitching is used to form an abstract drawing.  Being. uses natural fibres, deconstructed found pieces, and natural dyes such as teas where possible.  The variations in the dye and the sense of the unfinished sit with the imperfect, open ended nature of being.
