Harman Grubisa Closes Its Doors - We Look Back On The Label's Best Moments
Sophisticated and powerful, Harman Grubisa's designs have made a lasting impact on the local fashion industry
Much loved award-winning Auckland-based womenswear label Harman Grubisa announced this week that it has decided to close its doors, as designers Madeleine Harman and Jessica Grubisa focus on the next chapter ahead.
The label, worn by the likes of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Lorde, Paula Penfold and influential fashion editor Caroline Issa, garnered a cult following for its sophisticated take on fashion.
Crisply tailored suiting, languid blouses and cocktail dresses became signature wardrobe pieces for their multi-faceted customers, women who admired the brand's ability to create clothes that were polished, glamourous and powerful.
Since its inception in 2014, the label achieved some major milestones that included a major partnership as the Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer of 2016; and winning the womenswear category for the Woolmark Prize Australia and New Zealand Regional award in 2017.
As one of the most important local labels to emerge during the mid 2010s era, we take a look at some of our favourite stylish moments with Harman Grubisa.
