Inspired by utility, form and function, Shjark founder Amber Gardner designs for “strong, busy women needing clothes to get shit done in”.
Experience as a menswear designer and pattern cutter at Crane Brothers and Workshop comes through in Amber’s favouring of clean lines and impeccable tailoring — think beautifully cut tobacco-hued coats, slinky bow blouses and classic indigo denim.
On top of launching an organic range later in the year, Amber has another exciting development in the works: a Shjark retail store in Auckland’s Grey Lynn. “I work hard to design each season as a complete modular wardrobe and this will be more evident in a beautiful retail space,” she explains. “Our clients can get the full Shjark experience and also a peep into my working studio.”
All strong lines and flawless tailoring,
Shjark promises feminine elegance
