Bridget Mathewson Design is based in Martinborough NZ, and is a long awaited dream for me.
In 1996 I attended the Design and Art College of New Zealand graduating with a Diploma in Fashion Design.
After leaving Christchurch my career path took a turn into photography which led me to Wanaka and a young high country musterer.
In 2002, Andy, the young musterer and I were married in Masterton, my hometown. Once again, careers changed to feeding hoards of musterers, in between having three children, and Fashion Design seemed a distant memory.
In 2008 the family farm in Wanaka was sold and Andy and I purchased a sheep and beef property, Whakapuni, in the South Wairarapa.
Five years on, and with the children, Sam, Hannah and George, all now at school, I decided after 16 years it was about time to put my Diploma to use!
I hope you enjoy my garments as much as I have enjoyed designing them xxB
