Co-founder of local luxury label Florence & Fortitude Elizabeth James shares a few of their favourite things.
Fashion is a family affair for Elizabeth James (pictured above right), who has launched the sleek and sustainable Florence & Fortitude label with her sister Anna.
Named after their great-grandmother, and the strength of her lineage, the carefully considered clothing line creates heritage pieces anew while paying homage to the style and grace of the women gone before them.
Here Elizabeth shares her favourite belongings, which offer a glimpse into the importance of her family, her legal background and women’s empowerment.
Launching late November, Florence & Fortitude is a sustainably-minded, made in New Zealand brand. Their online store – florenceandfortitude.com – is open for orders on their limited-edition garments every Wednesday for 24-hours only, to ensure thoughtful purchasing and production.
