Welcome to Northwic
AMY HOWAT - DESIGNER AND DRESSMAKER
Hi! I’m Amy, designer and dressmaker for Northwic, an Auckland-based luxury bridalwear and corsetry boutique.
I work one-on-one with each client to create personalised, one of a kind garments, with an emphasis on comfort and re-wearability. All garments are designed, patterned and constructed from scratch in my rural Helensville studio, allowing us to tailor every aspect to suit your style and personality. With experience in costume design, film and theatre, I love creating garments with a touch of drama, and absolutely adore Victorian clothing and corsetry.
I pride myself on providing a warm, open, low-stress environment, and enjoy all manner of projects, with no idea being too extravagant or too simple. I will help you narrow down (or expand!) your ideas, and guide you through the design process step by step to create the garment that is perfect for you. Whilst my main focus is on alternative bridalwear and corsetry, I am also available for burlesque costumes, as well as ball gowns and menswear.
If you’d like more information on the design process, or have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact. For quotes and estimations, please provide as much detail as you can about what you’re looking for.
Get in touch now to make your dream wedding outfit a reality, I’d love to hear from you!
