My designs are inspired by Matauranga Maori ( Maori Knoweledge) and my interest in the decorative arts, I am an avid collector of Kiwiana retro homewares.
My environment, nature and scenery provide me with a great selection off flora and fauna in which I can draw inspiration from the colours, silhouette and feel. As a self confessed fashion activist. the social temperature of the times often guides some of the pieces in my collections.
Jeanine Clarkin Clothing and Products are available at 21 waikare road Waheke Island (New Zealand). My studio is a revamped, re-occupied Old Waiheke Police Statio, rebirthed as :
Waikare on Waikare
