Jumpsuit Jones

Misty Ratima designed this jumpsuit for her 2017 collection, 'Matariki Ahunga Nui'. Misty entered it into the Indigenous Fashion Competition, Miromoda, where she was the overall winner. The prize included the chance to show her collection at the New Zealand Fashion Week in 2017. The jumpsuit is printed with the logo of Misty's clothing label, Te Kohu, which she screenprinted on the fabric before sewing the garments. It can be worn in a number of ways. "I created it with the idea of versatility in fashion and as a way of addressing how bad our consumer culture is within the 'fast' fashion industry. It is made of a poly-stretch knit and comes in a 'one size fits many' range. ie. size 8 to 16."
