TRELISE COOPER (New Zealand) Floral Dress

Trelise Cooper is one of New Zealand’s most successful and internationally recognised fashion designers. Strikingly feminine, this Trelise Cooper floral frock has a vintage-inspired, beautifully cut silhouette that recalls sun-kissed romances and tropical fantasies.
Style this dreamy floral frock with a bright lip and neutral pumps for a chic al fresco lunch date.

Starting out with a boutique store in Auckland, New Zealand, during the mid-80s, Trelise Cooper’s ascent onto the fashion stage – and the front covers of Vogue and Marie Claire – is made more remarkable by the fact that she never received any formal training as either a designer or seamstress. Instead, Cooper relied on her self-confessed ‘obsession’ for detail, as well as a natural eye for fashion. Soon her clothes acquired a reputation for their bold use of pattern and intricate stitching. The Auckland-born have since gone on to design clothes for the likes of Liv Tyler, Julia Roberts, and the cast of Sex and the City. Aside from RTW lines, the designer also offers a textile collection and a hugely popular children’s clothing line. Suri Cruise is one of the Hollywood tots who have been spotted in Trelise Cooper’s children’s line.

Trelise Cooper was also selected to design new uniforms for Air New Zealand, which debuted in 2011. The colourful pattern looks a bit like batik, no? :-)
