Green Carbon: Carbon Friendly Certified Organisation
Trelise Cooper Limited

Formed in 1997, Trelise Cooper is a luxury fashion label, operating on an international scale. The company’s core focus is not on the bottom line, but on panache, talent and attention to flair. These are high priorities for the intuitive designer and her 75-strong staff.

Sold in boutiques in the UK, USA, Paris, Rome, Singapore and throughout Australasia the Trelise Cooper brand is an unmitigated success story. It is estimated that at any one time 50,000 Trelise Cooper pieces are in circulation around the world. In the US most Trelise Cooper sells before it hits the shop floor – fans snapping it up in exclusive buying sprees. In 2002 Hollywood actress Julia Roberts famously bought out the entire summer range in one go.

More than half the company’s earnings come from export sales and Trelise Cooper sales to the US now outstrip NZs total apparel exports to that country.

In 2002 Trelise Cooper Ltd was the recipient of the Trade New Zealand Export Award for creating a successful export business.
