Designer Jacqueline Anne is renowned for her ultra-feminine and elegant designs. Her Maison de Couture recently opened on 229 Parnell Road, where The Shoe Rack store used to be.
Widely respected for her exceptionally timeless and feminine creations, the talented designer established her couture womenswear label Jacqueline Anne Couture in 2019, following a long and successful fashion career in Tokyo, Paris, and Los Angeles.
Having made her debut at New Zealand Fashion Week that same year, Jacqueline Anne Couture rapidly made its mark for its vibrant take across a variety of cultures and art forms along with a respectful nod to historical fashion.
Jacqueline is a direct descendant of Chief Te Mahutu and Te Waikaungarangi of the Te Āti Awa Iwi, from Pukerangiora Pa, in Taranaki, where she grew up on a dairy farm. She is also an identical twin (her sister is an award-winning advertising art director and also a worldwide known artist in Kustom Kulture).
With a lifelong appreciation of unashamedly luxurious and feminine outfits, as well as vintage haute couture, these inspirations are reflected in Jacqueline’s exciting new space in Parnell, Auckland.
