After returning from a two year e-commerce working internship in Shanghai, Rachael Caughley found herself thinking wistfully about her part time University job at Dunedin fashion stalwart Slick Willys. She missed the customer engagement, interaction and tailoring of trendy garments. After some careful consideration she decided to take on the journey of opening her own store right here in her home town of Wellington.

Today, nestled down Ghuznee Street in the thriving creative heart of Wellington’s Cuba Quarter you’ll find CAUGHLEY - an ever-changing hub of independent high-quality fashion, timeless accessories, exceptional shoes and sought-after jewellery. Founded in 2015 by Rachael Caughley, the store is home to carefully selected pieces from coveted international brands and emerging New Zealand designers.

With a strong online store and social media presence and the promise of a constant collation of fresh brands, Caughley is keeping Wellingtonians' individualistic fashion sense satisfied.
