Hewitt’s love for fashion went hand in hand with her love for sustainability, and the pieces you’ll find at Maggie Marilyn will exemplify her vision. Their clothing is made in New Zealand, circular and regenerative, and packaged consciously when delivered to buyers and stores. Maggie Marilyn embraces simple styles and eye-catching colours that help to enhance the nature and environment you experience.

Kristy Caylor is a fashion designer with a very dedicated and active business plan that ensures the fashion she distributes does a little harm to the planet as possible. Founded by Caylor in 2018, For Days is a clothing brand that makes t-shirts and knitwear from upcycled and organic materials. What makes this brand unique is that rather than buyers, For Days has subscribers – you can pay a monthly flat-rate fee to get your clothing delivered to you each month, depending on how many articles you’re hoping to buy.”We have a burden of ownership,” Caylor explains. “It leads to a pretty heavy solution problem, [but] we want to give people the freedom of new things all the time [as well as] a new relationship to their products.” Stay in touch with For Days on Instagram for more style inspiration, intriguing but straightforward looks, and eco-friendly living tips.
