Wearing Working Style at the Halbergs

Few people reach the dizzying heights of the Olympics but a few individuals have raced through our doors to swap out the aerodynamic speed suits and step in to a suit that is a little more formal for the annual Halberg Awards. The evening celebrates sporting excellence and achievement from New Zealand's greatest sportspeople who provided us with so many unforgettable moments during the past 12 months. It's always incredibly inspiring to meet such driven, successful and humble people and we enjoyed being a small part of the night that celebrates those huge achievements.

Working Style Parnell Store – 1989 ( Marie and Chris Dobbs )

Last week was a significant week for this family business. We farewell a woman who was the founding member – My mother, Marie Elizabeth Dobbs. 30 years ago she encouraged me to make my first shirt and then was instrumental in helping setup a factory in Marton. Without her, nothing would have happened. Words will never explain the influence and inspiration she has brought to us. We salute you – Rest in Peace.
