Wellington-based ethical and sustainable fashion house Kowtow have officially opened their first Auckland boutique right here in Newmarket following on from their first retail opening in Wellington, in 2018. The brand was founded in 2007 by Gosia Piatek, and since the beginning Kowtow have been a label committed to creating positive change. Their conscious decisions to use only renewable and sustainable fibres alongside ethical manufacturing allow the brand to deliver collections that are minimal, utilitarian and carry an understated sense of femininity.
Their elegant Newmarket store is located on York Street, and was brought to life by award-winning designer Rufus Knight. Knight tapped into the brand’s minimalist aesthetic with traceable and sustainable materials being a key design feature. The designer is also responsible for other key Newmarket store spaces such as Lonely, twenty-seven names and Simon James Concept Store.
The serene space allows customers a seamless, relaxing experience that reflects the ease and practicality of Kowtow.
