QUIRKY COUTURE & SLOW FASHION
Ruscoe is a "quirky couturier". He takes an inspiration, be it people or places, come to life. He gives the same emotion he felt in designing and creating his garments. He wants is clients to evoke and feel an emotion when they are wearing a one-of-a-kind signature Ruscoe garment.
Its a one-man show! He thoughtfully designs it, he carefully creates it and he creatively styles it. All you need to do is book an appointment with Ruscoe via the contacts page and let the full Ruscoe experience begin.
We don't do "fast fashion". We do "slow fashion". Slow Fashion is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
Developing a garment with a cultural and emotional connection is also pertinent to the purpose behind slow fashion: consumers will keep an article of clothing longer than one season if they feel emotionally or culturally connected to the article of clothing.
WHERE IS IT MADE?
Pieces are all personally made and manufactured in New Zealand. The fabrics and resources we use are sourced from different countries all over the world, and of course, we also support local New Zealand retailers to help Aotearoa flourish.
Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for production. Production starts from when we send you a confirmation email that we have received your request and measurements, and fabrics on the chosen design are available. Please take note that fabrics are subject to availability. First come, first served.
At our online store, we sell designs that can be remade according to your size. Please checkout our the "Shop" page to see the pieces that are available at our online store. Again, fabrics are subject to availability. Please contact Ruscoe for enquiries and for design reservations.
