If the clothes in your wardrobe are looking a little dull, a trip to Wanda Harland is in order. The kind of place that greets you with the seductive smell of leather and new clothes, Wanda Harland is an inner city gem for those needing a hit of impressive fashion in their lives.

One of only two stores in Wellington to stock popular brand Elk, Wanda Harland also makes sure they support makers from this side of the Tasman too. Twenty-Seven Names, Nyne, and LUC (a label started by store manager Sheryl) are all popular choices for those wanting to dress themselves in something local. There’s also fun and sparkly pieces by Danish makers, thanks to a trip to Denmark earlier in life which was all the inspiration owner Martha needed to start stocking the wares in her own shop. As she points out, black is a great colour, but it looks even better when it’s paired with something bright, ‘wear black, but wear orange too.’ Looking for some fun bling to add to an outfit? Glamorous pieces by Silk & Steel and custom jewellery by Rachel Stichbury should do the trick.

A push back against fast fashion, Wanda Harland is not about cheap and unethical labour, but instead about a celebration of makers that know looking good stems from clothes that have been made with a whole lot more kindness to the planet and people.

First and foremost a store for women, there’s also small human clothes by Hikkepik and beautiful shave creams or soaps for your favourite man by Triumph & Disaster, and if it’s a last minute present you’re after, there’s a selection of fun hip flasks, salt grinders, keyrings and cheeky greeting cards.
