Manning Cartell

Manning Cartell is one of Australias most favoured fashion labels.
It's the creation of three sisters that have had extensive backgrounds in the fashion industry, as well as in fashion design. Launched in 2005.

Kate Sylvester

Kate Sylvester is an independent intelligent New Zealand designer.

100% of their clothing is made onshore and they're committed to supporting New Zealand's fashion industry.

Fleur Wood

Fleur Wood is the creative force behind her self-named label.

She roams the world in search of the best textiles and craftsmen to create her designs, which she supplies to leading boutiques and popular labels worldwide. Her love of fabrics and design springs from a background of working in fashion.

At twenty-three she took two years out and lived in a nunnery in the Indian Himalayas designing ranges for a culture-preservation project of the Tibetan exile government.

Upon returning to Sydney she launched her own label, which - call it good karma - has enjoyed exponential growth.

She continues to travel extensively throughout India and Europe, meeting up with hand embroiders in Delhi, drawing inspiration from flea markets in Paris and the heartbeat of New York.

Fleur believes that company profit comes after personal integrity and she continues to donate a percentage of profits to charity.
