I have just returned from a most successful trip to New Zealand where I visited my suppliers and I am very excited about the new ranges for 2015. In the South Island we saw the earthquake devastation in Christchurch firsthand. What a huge rebuilding job they have in front of them but the spirit of the people is quite amazing. A new shopping precinct, the Restart Mall built with shipping containers, has sprung up in the city centre (see photo of Caroline, left, and Cate) where we had lunch in the top of a double decker container restaurant. My long-time friend Cate, who has recently moved into her new home, drove us around the city and to Sumner where both her daughters had lost their homes.
Cate has been wearing Silkbody clothing for many years and suggested I visit the company in Dunedin. I am very pleased to announce that, as a result of this visit I have been appointed the exclusive Australian stockist of these wonderful garments which will be on this website shortly.
