Barbara Miles
ABOUT:
Every story has a beginning. Our beginning started just over 5 years ago, when the founders, Barbara and Adie, over several glasses of wine, came up with an idea to create some statement jewellery. Designing and curating jewellery, under the ‘Two Blonde Bobs’ brand to wholesale to upmarket designer, fashion, and giftware stores throughout New Zealand. The rest is history.... Our products have been seen in glossy magazines, on television, and available throughout the country in major retail stores, not forgetting the online boutique for anytime shopping. At the end of 2019, Barbara became the Sole Director of TBB and has taken the business from strength to strength, wholesaling to more and more designer stores throughout NZ and has just launched in the Australian Market. Receiving daily enquiries from all over the world. This experience led to my next chapter of discovery. Two Blonde Bobs clothing creates gorgeous layering and trans-seasonal pieces for all who love fashion, and love to be individual with our conscious decision to have made ALL of our clothing and jewellery in New Zealand, supporting local industry. With the modern woman always at the forefront, my styles appeal to a wide variety of customers with varied lifestyles. Emphasising wearability and comfort, these are stylish classics that give my wearers’ confidence be your own style. It is how YOU wear it! Combining my statement jewellery with the new gorgeous clothing, Two Blonde Bobs has the ability to take any outfit from "Drab to Fab" in an instant. While Two Blonde Bobs have provided wholesale jewellery and now fashion across Aotearoa for sometime, I also present to you a new chapter online. Simple online shopping for you anywhere, anytime. My online boutique is open 24/7 for your ease of shopping. Enjoy your journey into my wonderful world, I know you find something you love.

Public Record
PROUDLY OWNED BY:
Yuka O'Shannessy
ABOUT:
Public Record is a gallery store in Ponsonby owned by designer and stylist Yuka O’Shannessy. Public Record represents both New Zealand and international artists and makers who create high standard art, craft and design pieces from raw materials using age-old or technical processes specific to their practices. The space is designed to be welcoming and calm to encourage contemplation and appreciation for the personal narratives and skills of the artists along with the conversations they evoke. We like to envisage that these works will be kept as family heirlooms that are passed down through generations. As well as providing this for its customers, Public Record has built a strong and supportive creative community for its artists too. Public Record intends to provide a place and space for cultural exchanges. Our ever-evolving catalogue is centred around Yuka’s two homes: Aotearoa, New Zealand and Japan. As well as representing Japanese artists in New Zealand and offering workshops on traditional crafts, Public Record also represents New Zealand artists in Japan. We are excited about the possibilities for new understandings of traditional practices. Another theme central to the curation of the store is the principles of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy loosely translated to a reverence for that which is imperfect, natural and honest either; as a way of life or in aesthetics. Born in Tokyo, Yuka has been living in Aotearoa with her family for the past 20 years. She believes in intentional living and creating a world that is warm, refined, considered and one of quiet beauty.
