Legskin tights are our designer fashion collection made with 190gsm feather light moisture wicking fabric. These beauties are individually hand printed with real artwork produced by our artists in residence. They are then hand cut and sewn in our boutique design studio in Christchurch, New Zealand. We are proud of our zero waste, environmentally sustainable printing practices and we guarantee our workmanship. Legskin tights won’t shrink or fade and the seams and labels are guaranteed to last. Over years of research and development we have created the lightest legging on the market to support flexibility and endurance in extremely hot and sweaty conditions; ideal for Hot Yoga, Dance, Hiking and Pilates. The designer artwork applied to the technical base gives you a garment you can wear for fashion, while never compromising function.
My design journey started exactly where I expect all of my artistic adventures to begin…with ‘Butterflies in My Stomach’..that jittery hunger of creativity that is essential to all creative people as a prelude. The kind that keeps you up at night.
In art, as in life, there will be darkness, there will be doubters, there will be self-perceived barriers created by your own mind. There will also be the true colour of happiness that freedom brings if, like the butterfly, you have the courage to change.
Change is the essence of life.
Nothing symbolises this more perfectly than the existence of the butterfly.
There are not years or even months in a butterfly’s life, only moments.
As if to remind us to spend our own given moments treading lightly upon the planet with a readiness to surrender what we are, for what we could become, seeking opportunities to create beautiful differences wherever we travel and releasing the fear to fly regardless of what the caterpillars may say.
As my own design journey comes to an end, it is my hope that, in wearing my design, your journey continues to flow with Courageous Freedom.
Become the Butterfly.
