Darla Clements - Sewer, designer and maker

Dare Darla is a women's clothing brand based in Golden Bay, New Zealand. Everything is designed and made in my studio here in Golden Bay. I make quality clothing for every day wear, for bodies of all shapes, ages and backgrounds. 

Based in the small town of Golden Bay, I design clothing that I want to wear, which are garments that are comfortable and transition from city life to country life with ease. 
I know from my own experience that bodies do not come in standard sizes. So please get in touch if you would like a garment made to measure, I don't usually charge any extra.
At the start of 2019 I become a mother to my beautiful set on twins. Sewing is still happening in my Dare Darla studio, just at a slower pace, while I find the balance between running a business and being a Mum.

You will see that most of the garments for sale online are made to order with 5-7 days allowed for me to make them. I do this so I can offer more sizes and create less waste. But I do usually have a few sizes in stock already made, so please get in touch if you are in a hurry.
