Design your own wardrobe


Wakatipu designers (from left) Tamsin Cooper, Francesca King, Marcia McWhirter, Tracey van Herel (with daughter Pheobe O’Donnell), Claire Brinsley and Jane Sutherland get together ahead of their third Christmas sale.
The women are selling their women’s and children’s designer threads and accessories at the Arrowtown Hall from 9am to 5pm this Saturday and Sunday.

Cooper and Sutherland’s self-titled labels join King’s Smith & Western, McWhirter’s Ecowrap, Van Herel’s Three Bags Full and Brinsley’s Claire Bloom. Arrowtown-based Cooper says the group will enjoy selling items at bargain prices to locals.

“None of us have stores, so it’s a great opportunity to play shops and have contact with our customers and get their feedback.”
