A place where creative illustration meets functional fashion
My kind of scene is an online fashion store based in the Tasman region New Zealand.
The business emerged from two of my desires, to turn a long-held love of drawing into a creative business and an eternal search for the perfect t-shirt. What started as a single t-shirt idea turned into a passion for designing on textile and making all kinds of tops.
My mission is to integrate original drawings with classic garments. All the garments at My kind of scene feature an original piece of artwork which start life as hand drawn sketches.
The prints are inspired by stories, history, people and places. I work in a rural studio and so many of my ideas often have a nod to nature. Whatever the idea, I want to create print ideas that are a little different.
These products are made locally in limited quantities. They are produced by talented people I have come to know and trust. Wherever possible I choose to collaborate with small local business to get things done.
