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.   



Edgy-chic. This expression defines the particular style of CoSTUME NATIONAL. Rock & Roll culture. Minimal lines and refined fabrics are what characterise the work of Ennio Capasa, a former protege of Yohji Yamamoto. Ennio Capasa is the founder and Creative Director of CoSTUME NATIONAL. 



Soul is pure emotion. A unique scent that has been created in order to embody the essence and soul of CoSTUME NATIONAL. This warm, sensuous fragrance takes shape around an iconic ingredient: pure amber. A favourite of the designer, amber expresses freedom and absolute elegance.

The fragrance opens with spicy notes of cardamom, pink pepper and bergamot and suddenly unfolds a deep heart of geranium, leather accord and Oud. The warm base notes of grey amber, vanilla beans and patchouli leave an long-lasting, alluring scent on the skin.


Inspired by the concept of the artistic nude as an expression of the human soul, this fragrance asserts a spirit. Nude is being oneself. 

The fragrance opens with mysterious and spicy notes of Cardamom and Cumin, surrounded by the delicacy of Neroli. A floral heart of ylang ylang, Damask Rose and Tuberose suddenly appears, enchanting in its elegance and sensuality. Finally, a warm base of Virginian Cedarwood, Patchouli heart and Sandalwood gives depth to the scent.
