New Zealand Fashion Brands List A-Z

17361759_1282464591818967_2587185976844967473_nNew Zealand has an array of well respected designers, where each brand has their own distinctive style. We may be situated at the corner of the world, but there are many talented and creative Kiwi fashion designers locally and internationally. The very first New Zealand designers I heard of that come to mind are Karen Walker, Kate Sylvester and Trelise Cooper. Some of my favourite collections from this years designers are Eugenie’s Autumn/Winter Collection 2017, as well as Karen Walker’s Pre-Fall Collection 2017.

New Zealand Cruelty Free Beauty Brands

60cc6f698efa317df7fbcdb98d5b8316.jpgNew Zealand has many amazing cruelty free, vegan and organic skincare brands. For the sake of this article, I will focus on cruelty free brands (although many of these are vegan and organic too). When I was living in Australia, there was also an awareness of ethical brands and the ability to choose cruelty free and eco-friendly options.

There are many beauty and skin care products that promote ethical production. As we have increasingly more access to information online, there is more awareness about the brands we use. I’ve listed below just some of the cruelty free brands. However, if you have any that you know, please feel free to comment them down below!
