Hello and welcome to Vibe Clothing.
I am Laurise and I am lucky enough to be mum to three amazing little ladies. Vibe has evolved as the result of a struggle over the past couple of years to find quality, age appropriate clothing for my rapidly growing girls. It is extremely hard to find fun, comfortable clothing that fits with their stage of life.
Vibe garments use premium quality cotton spandex that is manufactured in NZ so it is comfortable, breathable, feels amazing and keeps its shape! Everything is designed with an active lifestyle in mind and can be layered and worn year round.
The Vibe journey.
My background is in graphic design. After completing a BMA at WINTEC I started out at ACP Media (now Bauer Media) in Auckland working across a variety of magazine titles. When I decided to move home to Tauranga I joined the team at Wave Design in Mount Maunganui. For the past eleven years I have been a self employed designer working around being mum first!
According to my mum, right from when I was a toddler I was always doodling patterns and she imagined me becoming a textile designer. I spent my weekends working at a fabric shop while I was at school, so the combination of my experience to date has naturally evolved into a fusion of all of the above!
I hope the young ladies in your life have as much fun and adventure in their Vibe threads as I experienced in creating the brand.
Thank you for feeling the Vibe! xo
