Hi I'm lorayne

Some of my very first childhood memories are of my mum sewing, by the time I was a teenager, she owned a large clothing factory in Mount Maunganui, where I went to work when I left school. I have spent my life in the rag trade and in education & training.


In the early days we manufactured for some of the greats in New Zealand’s fashion history, from Expozay, Thornton Hall, Moontide, Jag, Resort, Vamp and VSSP before branching out to our own brands of bodyline aerobic wear and jaydees clothing.


I am now living on the Kapiti coast and love it here, Otaki reminds me of the peacefulness that Mt Maunganui once had, yet close enough to enjoy the vibrancy of the coolest little city in the world!


I look forward to meeting you and helping you with either alterations/repairs/dressmaking/small run manufacturing – give me a call I would love to hear from you!
