Child Labor Free
Child Labor Free has developed the world's first global accreditation system to inspect and analyse companies and their supply chain for the use of child labor. This is such a fantastic and important initiative and Kate is so proud to be an ambassador.
Paris Mitchell styled our Winter 16 lookbook and NZFW show with Naomi Smith and cast our beautiful, strong, gang of muses. We love working with Paris and she has the best laugh in the world.
Katherine Lowe of Katherine is Awesome styled our Sylvester Winter 16 Collection 'Forever' at the Marr Factory. We love how Katherine perfectly captured the playful essence of Sylvester, creating looks for the nonchalant tomboy who still likes to be pretty.
Mercedes-Benz has become synonymous with global fashion and we are so excited to be the 2015 recipient of the 'Mercedes-Benz Presents' accolade at New Zealand Fashion Week. We love how Mercedes-Benz’s core values of innovation and timeless quality align beautifully with our own brand.
Naomi Smith is an iconic Australian stylist whose work is both directional and beautiful. Current Editor for Nine MSN Honey and a regular contributor for Doing Bird, Naomi’s work in the fashion industry is well known and respected. Her past titles include Fashion Director for both Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar Australia. We love her work and the styling she is doing for Kate Sylvester in both Australia and New Zealand.
Shirley Simpson from MAC makes beautiful faces. A long-time collaborator on our campaigns, shows and look books, Shirley understands that Kate loves an effortlessly done but undone face.
Matt Benns for Stephen Marr
Matt Benns from Stephan Marr does beautiful hair. Not only is he Stephen Marr’s Creative Director, he's a super cool dude! We love the looks he has created on shoots and NZFW shows such as our Winter 15 'Tartt show and Summer 15 'Romeo 4 Juliet' lookbook.
Huia makes delicious, characterful wines. Claire and Mike have produced hand crafted organic wines on their vineyard in Marlborough since 1996. We're big fans of their Blanc de Blancs and their Brut! You'll find these wines at all KS events!
We love Antipodes and their great water. This well-crafted water company is sourced locally in Whakatane- just down the road from Wayne’s old stomping ground. We serve their beautifully bottled water at all our Kate Sylvester launches, and events.
We love doing shows and we love the Marrs for creating the ‘The Marr Factory’ nights at their gorgeous bar, Golden Dawn. Working with their lovely gang of creative collaborators, we get a show and a party rolled into one – it doesn’t get better than that!
