Oh hey it's me, Brigette, the woman behind Honey L'Amour. Let me tell you a bit about myself and how HL came to be.
I grew up with sewing being a part of everyday life. My mum is a highly skilled dressmaker, as was her mother and grandmother.
My dad is an accomplished painter who has been published in several NZ art books and is still regularly exhibiting his work.
My parents opened a screen printing business when I was young and I spent many hours observing and exploring all aspects of screen printing.
I later decided to build on the knowledge and experience I had gained in this field and enrolled in Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design where I completed my BFA majoring in fashion design.
I started designing and selling my creations while studying, and began to build a great network of loyal customers. This eventually developed into the label I have today.
Over 10 years later I am now living back in Hamilton, running the family screen printing business and still designing/sewing as much as time will allows.
I am responsible for all the design, pattern making and sampling myself as well as most of the garment construction.
Thank you for the ongoing support. I have so much passion for this brand, and without my valued customers it would not be possible.
