Last week I had the privilege of meeting Lisani, the fashion designer behind Lennox. Her designs are fresh and elegant and New Zealand made. You can see them at her website lennox.co.nz. Lisani used to be a textile designer before she became a fashion designer. The first thing I noticed about her designs was the gorgeous fabric. It looks beautiful and wears well. Lisani tries to make all her fabrics machine washable.
Anyway, the lovely Lisani normally sells her leftover fabric at $5 to $10 per metre to fashion students. When I told her about our group, she very generously offered to let us buy this fabric from her at the same price! She has got boxes and boxes of all different kinds of fabric, and some rolls as well.
Yesterday I bought some navy ponte, some grey cotton knit, some silky steel blue polyester and some wool blend ribbing. I think this is the best quality fabric I have ever bought.
She will have this fabric available at her shop for the next few days, before taking it over to the design schools in the city. If you are making the trip into Devonport, it is probably a good idea to call Lennox on 446 6658 to make sure the stock is still there. 86 Calliope Rd.
