Fashion week: Trelise Cooper And Barbara Lee

Air NZ Fashion Week: Trelise Cooper And Barbara Lee

Trelise Cooper at
Air NZ Fashion Week

Trelise Cooper

Since its inception, Trelise Cooper has steadfastly kept to her initial business vision to design and produce creative, individual clothing for women aged 30-55. Cut to fit most women, she continues to produce distinctive, directional, treasured pieces.

Barbara Lee

Christchurch-based designer Barbara Lee is famous for designing sexy, fabulous suits for high-flying women. Sensual evening wear is another passion - a garment she gave to Miss New Zealand won "best gown" at the 1997 Miss World competition - and at her fashion week debut in 2003, she stole the show by sending sexy Nicky Watson down the catwalk in a red satin corset with a few strategically placed strands of organza, black fishnets and boots.

Barbara works with her husband William - a great source of support and inspiration - and a small team who share her passion.
