A love letter to New Zealand fashion. As the past few months have been a challenging time for all in many ways, this is especially prevalent for business owners along with the fashion and creative industries alike. As Australia and New Zealand begin to ease restrictions, this means many are now able to get back to creating and collaborating. To celebrate this positive step forward, we wanted to shine a light on our friends and neighbours in New Zealand fashion as part of an ongoing series shot by Auckland based photographer and creative Robert Tennent.
Next up in the series we have jewellery designer and mother, Jasmin Sparrow. Sparrow has been creating and designing jewellery for the last four years, known for her selections of unique gemstones and recycled materials, producing adornments to cherish for the years to come. See our full shoot and interview with Jasmin below.
