been | Amber Whitecliffe ‘Mrs Pinto’ Launch

Amber Whitecliffe released her summer 14/15 collection titled Mrs Pinto earlier this month, we attend an exclusive preview at Amber Whitecliffe’s store to celebrate this launch.

I will admit that I am not the most qualified in fashion (actually not qualified at all) which means I am not very knowledgeable in this field, but I have taste and know what I like when I see it. And believe me when I say this.. I truly like and would wear what I see in the Mrs Pinto range. We all got a glimpse of Amber’s summer collection at this year’s NZ Fashion week. Her designs were among the New Generation collection, a part of NZFW dedicated to showcasing emerging and up-and-coming fashion designers.


The thing I love about Amber’s work is that she approaches her designs with a positive outlook on life resulting in garments that are both cheerful and elegant to wear. There is an overall bounce and energy in her work that I swear can brighten up anyone’s day.


Her current collection represents her exciting new role of being a wife, she was inspired by her husband’s Indian and Portuguese heritage generating designs inspired mostly by Portuguese food, colour, and culture. The collection is predominantly red and cream featuring flecks of golds and greens. I am absolutely in love with the floral print (see below), the print is a watercolour painting inspired by the colours of the Portuguese flag.

Amber’s Mrs Pinto collection is stunning and was one of my favourite collections at NZ Fashion Week. Go check out Amber’s store in Parnell it is located right next to the Chocolate Boutique so you can’t miss it. The Mrs Pinto collection is currently the newest and exciting thing there but there are plenty of reason why you should visit the store. Amber Whitecliffe stocks Veronica B jewellery, Karen Murrell cosmetics, candles, leather bags, floral head bands and more!
