Husband and wife team Levi and Alisha Metekingi named Wynter Collective after their dream name for a future child, Wynter. Wynter Collective is a men’s and women’s streetwear label that celebrates modern, colourful and architectural clothing.
After two years on a service mission for his church overseas, Levi returned home to New Zealand and learnt how to sew. Finally, a long-term concern of not being able to find clothes the way he wanted them to be designed was solved. Friends and family began to ask for custom garments and as demand began to grow Alisha encouraged Levi to start a small label with her.
The Metekingis both grew up in Hamilton with Levi gaining a diploma in Business Management at Wintec and Alisha gaining a teaching degree at the University of Waikato and a certificate in Business Management.
Life is very busy with the Metekingis both being in full time employment while developing Wynter Collective, but they love being busy. The Metekingis gain inspiration from their surroundings, mixing ideas together and creating garments they have always wanted to wear.
Wynter Collective places some special features on their garments to separate them from what is already on the market. They listen to their customers and include their suggestions into the design. Wynter Collective plans to stick to their roots while building a highly recognized label known for quality streetwear. They aim to have garments sold through retail stores not only in New Zealand but also worldwide, while hoping to eventually open their own independent store in New Zealand.
