Paula

There’s lots to love about Paula’s approach to style.  Where possible, she makes her own clothes, and only buys new when she cannot make it herself or source it second-hand. She’s such an inspiration to me for sustainability and creativity…

“My jumpsuit is my own mash up of two amazing Papercut Pattern designs (a talented Nelson pattern designer). The top is from the Meridian Dress and the bottom is taken from the Sierra Jumpsuit. Both great patterns on their own as I have made them both too!  I have a thing for forest green at the moment so was happy to find this fabric.
My Jelly sandals I purchased from a friend, and the pouch bag is from a new Auckland designer Outliv. I love how environmentally conscious they are, with the belief that fabric should not be so easily disregarded and disposed of. They also contribute a percentage of their profits to an environmental organisation.  Yes, the bag is made from re-cycled materials”.
