Stylish Fashion that tRANSCENDS TIME
onsonby Road’s The Cupboard creates exclusive designer fashion, designed to be both refreshingly modern and effortlessly timeless. The Cupboard’s fashion embodies an intrinsically New Zealand feel, resonating with the unexpected drama and restrained shades of our landscape. The designer clothing store offers a team of in-house stylists for bespoke tailoring or custom design. Alternatively, The Cupboard provides a personal styling service to help select the perfect piece, be it a special occasion or for everyday wear. Owner Diane Burkhardt believes each client can use designer clothing to tell their own story. “We help a woman tailor for her personality,” says Diane. “We help her fulfill the look she suits and likes, as well as what is comfortable and delivers extra self assurance.” The Cupboard prides itself on creating quality, long-lasting garments that form the foundation of an enduring, timeless wardrobe. Each season, The Cupboard’s strictly limited collections promise refreshing and modern designs that achieve the right balance of materiality and transparency. Diane and her team import high-quality natural fabrics from the best international sources. In summer, The Cupboard imports the finest silks, linens and crisp cottons; in winter, the highest-quality wools, cashmeres and tweeds. Exquisite velvet, beads and brocades are used all year round in the design of evening and daywear.
