It’s So Green!

How lucky are we to be living in a city where the urban landscape is so green. From Dunedin’s town belt to the native bush of Ross Creek to the distant hills of the peninsula, there’s an abundance of lush vegetation. It’s good to be green with fashion too and we’re not spoilt for choice – second-hand, vintage, recycled, upcycled and eco-friendly.

Why we love …

NOM*d – for their upcycling of vintage into new

Kowtow – for their use of only fair trade organic cotton

Melanie Child – for her entirely upcycled and innovative collections
