The Désirée label named after owner and designer Desiree Turner had its beginning back in 2009 after she graduated from Massey University and worked for others in the fashion industry for a time. After deciding to start a family, Desiree wanted to continue her career whilst looking after her children at home so the label Desiree was formed. What started as a made to measure service moved into developing a wholesale business supplying retail stores throughout New Zealand with several collections and the designer has also presented a collection at NZ Fashion Week. Moving forward to 2019, Desiree now has her own Wellington based retail store providing a personalised service to her customers creating clothing that is timeless and New Zealand made.
Désirée takes the time to create clothing that is tailored to the customers needs, is comfortable, easy to wear and to take care of. When purchasing an item from Désirée there is a complimentary alteration service, so if adjustments are needed or another colour would suit better then that can also be arranged at no extra cost to the customer. This service is offered to help ensure items purchased are perfect for the customer and will therefore be worn over and over again. Everything made by Désirée is carefully constructed using high quality fabrics. Each season garments are created from the waste generated by the main collection which has enable the designer to achieve zero waste within her business.
