As part of @fash_rev  @fash_rev_ausnz #FashionRevolution week we’re sharing the stories of makers behind our designs.⁣
⁣
All Karen Walker designs originate from our atelier in Auckland, New Zealand. We’re very fortunate and proud to have an atelier where every style’s been meticulously developed and crafted by our in-house team of designers, garment technicians, patternmakers and cutters, fabric specialists, print designers and seamstresses. ⁣
⁣
Once a garment’s design and construction is approved, it’s then passed along to our production team who work closely with our ready-to-wear manufacturing partners in New Zealand and China (more about them in our previous posts or karenwalker.com). We also produce some of our ready-to-wear in our atelier. In 2018 this accounted for 17% of our production. ⁣
⁣
Here’s some of the team; Jennette and Kerry (patternmakers), Ruby (pattern cutter), Leah, Celeste and Jan (seamstresses), Holly, Elina, Rachel and Kelsey (seamstresses and atelier managers).

Zhang, Ping and Chunmei are 3 of 5 members of our production team in Shanghai City. We’ve worked with this boutique partner for 10 years and they specialise in shirts and dresses for us. Zhang, Ping and Chunmei have been part of this wonderful team for 5, 8 and 7 years respectively and have over 45 years of sewing experience between them. Swipe to see some of the styles from our new collection this workroom’s produced. ⁣
⁣
Outside of work, you’ll find Zhang, a self-confessed shopaholic, hitting the shops, Ping tinkering away with electronics, repairing and refurbishing mobile phones as a side gig and Chunmei, cooking up her latest health food discovery.⁣⁣

With the fabric from France all perfectly cut by Greg and Nicholas (see 2 previous posts), it’s now over to Mandy, one of our Auckland-based ready-to-wear partners. We’ve worked with Mandy for 11 years and she’s a very important part of our New Zealand production. With 30 years’ experience, Mandy’s skills are in very high demand. Amongst other fabrics, she worked on our Bauhaus Chess Jacquard and is currently working on our Frances Hodgkins collaboration with  Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki (sneak peek in background). Not in the frame but keeping Mandy company as she works is her gorgeous cat Minnie // #FashionRevolution @fash_rev @fash_rev_ausnz

When our fabric, such as the Bauhaus Chess Jacquard from France (see its makers in our previous post) arrives, we take it to our local New Zealand production cutters. Greg (right) and Nicholas cut our Bauhaus Chess Jacquard in their workroom in Auckland. These two gentlemen have been cutting for 40 and 30 years respectively and we’ve had the pleasure of working with them for the past 6 years. Fashion work aside, Greg will be on the golf course any chance he gets and Nicholas is a total sports buff ✂️✂️ #FashionRevolution @fash_rev @fash_rev_ausnz

This week we’re joining @fash_rev @fash_rev_ausnz #FashionRevolution and sharing the stories of makers behind our designs.⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Because we believe it’s important to not only know who makes your clothes but also where the fabric they’re made from comes from, we’re starting with Karen and Denis from our French fabric mill based in Saint-Vincent-de-Reins who we’ve been sourcing from for 10 years. ⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Denis has been with this mill for 37 years and is the production manager. He’s a master when it comes to creating the highest quality yarn dyed and jacquard fabrics. Karen’s the commercial assistant who looks after all  our orders and she’s been with the company for 28 years. The Bauhaus Chess Jacquard in our new collection is just one example of the exquisite fabrics this team produces. ⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
The mill’s run by the 10th generation of the same family that started it 250 years ago and the family’s focus is now on sustainable development and weaving; organic and recycled fabrics, measured environmental impact and green & local energy.
