Sallie Clough is the owner and importer. Located on the Mediterranean coast line of Turkey for six months of the year, she frequently travels within Italy to buy then import new, exciting linen and silk clothing for the NZ market. Using her artistic ability which she is known for, gives her the edge above the rest with her own designs as a collection.

First and foremost she is an artist. Sallie continues to paint while in NZ and Turkey. Her paintings can be brought through her shops or privately. Talking about her imports she explains that all roads may lead to Rome, the runways of style stretch all the way through Italy to arrive in Milan, the epicenter of Italy’s thriving fashion industry.
What is so special about Italian fashion? What makes it relevant to the fast-moving pace of today’s society? Perhaps, in part, it’s the clever integration of traditionally expert workmanship with cutting-edge technology. Craftspeople are now working with new technologies, such as 3-D printing, to make manufacturing more efficient, and the end result more affordable. Fashion is Italy’s third-largest industry. To maintain this status, Italy must look to the future, as “fashion forward” takes on a whole new meaning.
Italian style is rightly celebrated as being unique among competitors with its unmistakable elegance, excellent tailoring, exquisite fabrics, and unmatched creativity and innovation.
Whether it’s haute couture or pret-a-porter, casual wear or accessories, Italian fashion houses are undoubtedly the shining stars of the international fashion scene. Italy is the place where fashion trends are started, innovations encouraged and names made. And thanks to the talent of its fashion designers, it seems set to continue on this stellar path for many decades to come.
