From New Zealand to the Tasman Sea on the Australian coast – literally, the collection is displayed on the coast – in the heart of Wickstead it is entirely for the resort. “Like New Zealand, Australia is very easy to wear. People from New Zealand come to Sydney with me, very close to home, close to the most beautiful beaches in the world.”
