Diane says her colours are soft and restrained, resonating New Zealand’s landscape. Whites, greys, silvers, lurex, cream, beige, khaki and gentle lemons are sculptured into gentle silhouettes; sometimes with volume, sometimes sleek and fitting.The Eastern elegance of a kimono is echoed in cross over styling, while swing coats of the 60s and 70s are expressed anew.
Diane is one of an increasingly rare breed of designers – one who can pattern draft. She understands the way fabric drapes, and the way it can be cut.
