JORDAINE BROGAN

Young designer and coffee enthusiast, Jordaine Brogan, has a five year plan. She is a visual merchandiser by day and a designer and business student by night. When she is not creating a storm of drawings in her workbooks Brogan soaks in inspiration from her local café and the streets of her hometown Christchurch.

Brogan’s first collection Re: Adjust 2.0 explores the designer’s sense of self as she finds her feet in the fashion industry while experiencing the aftermath of the Christchurch Earthquake. “I got to see pop art arrive and the debris somewhat leave the city, this creating my main focus of inspiration for my collection of separates with a lot of attention to detail,” said Borgan.

From the age of twelve Brogan’s creative flair was evident. Hand sewing handbags out of leather scraps was one of her first steps towards the fashion industry. Graduating from the Design and Arts College of New Zealand with an Advanced Diploma in Fashion Design in 2014 was a highlight. Brogan has gained first hand work room experience under Miriam Eisenhart and worked in millinery and fashion buying. She also won first place at the Riccarton Races for Costume Design. Comfortable and simplistic, Re: Adjust 2.0 features separates that don’t need elaborate embellishments to be sophisticated. To find out more, email broganjordaine@gmail.com.
