The celebration of Kate Sylvester’s 21+ years in business is an indicator of her lasting style. Within the New Zealand fashion climate, labels often struggle to cling to such a long and lively career.

Kate Sylvester emanates sophistication, refinement and femininity. A group of words that can often be associated with exhausted and irrelevant designs, Sylvester, however, manages to incorporate a cool and modern aesthetic without subtracting from her forms.

Collaborations from classic cultural icons, music, pop culture and so on, all feature within her trademark wares. A memorable collection was designed around the relationship of Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe, creating textured and refined garments.

Her online profile is increasing – her blog is a fascinating read, giving personal insight into Sylvester’s life and inspirations for her collections. Collaboration, individuality and youthful presence all play a part in Sylvester’s brand.

The store on Ponsonby Road is a hallmark of her style with clean cut and simple interiors and quirky furniture.
