About NEMO (n). an ethical design space

Welcome to Nemo, Queenstown’s most trusted sewing workroom, dedicated to providing quality stitch-work for the local community, and beyond. We're committed to giving you the very best repairing, repurposing, altering, hiring, and tailoring services with a focus on sustainability, professionalism, and quality.

Founded in 2000 by Trudy Munro, Nemo has come a long way from its beginnings as a pop-up shop in Arrowtown. When Trudy first started out, her passion for keeping fashion circulating drove her to source the best sewers, and gave her the momentum to turn hard work and inspiration into to a steadfast business that continues to service the needs of the Queenstown community today.

Over the last 20+ years, our array of services have grown beyond the Workroom to also include a full-range bridal service & showroom (Nemo Bridal & Couture) plus a modern high-quality suit hire outlet (Omen Suit Hire) both of which are founded on a principles of a circular economy, encouraging customers to choose high quality bespoke tailoring, remodelling vintage, or to hire items where possible.

In 2020 Trudy’s vision grew beyond our four walls and into the cyberspace, where we now offer our services to anyone with an internet connection and access to a postbox.  By introducing an Online Repair & Alterations service, anyone in New Zealand can mail us their damaged or much-loved items in need of some TLC, and we’ll stitch new life back into them before sending them back.

With the sickening statistics that have uncovered the ‘fast-fashion’ industry as one of the largest contributors to the world’s pollution problem, we are dedicated to advocating for a new age of the fashion industry.  By encouraging our community and the whole of New Zealand to opt-in to repairing & fixing their clothes over sending them to the landfill and buying a replacement, it’s our hope that we can assist in reducing our collective carbon footprint and ultimately usher in a healthier planet.

We hope you enjoy the Nemo services as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you.  Get in touch!

 

Sincerely,

The Nemo Team
