The Team

Queenstown Sewing Specialists

Alongside Trudy in the busy workroom is Kristen McBride, Hannah O’Connor, Elizabeth Boyle. Emily Liddicoat looks after our customers and front of house operations.

Trudy comes from a long line of clever women. From graduating from the Home Science school at Otago to working in the film industry for a number of years and owning and running fashion a store, Trudy has a deep knowledge and love of fabrics. Her ability to style people, see the potential in clothing and knowing how to change pieces up to look their best is second to none.

Kristen has an incredible wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to construction, fabrics and all things bridal. She is the master crafter of the couture gowns and all bespoke orders. Kristen has an amazing knack for creating someones vision into something of beauty and substance.

Hannah our alterations queen. Hannah is a multi talented, can-do girl. She hails from Central North Island, growing up in the tourist hub of Rotorua. She moved to Queenstown in 2017. Her innate ability to sew has been to the benefit of all at Nemo.

Elizabeth has been in the Nemo fold since 2012 at that stage fresh out training in theatre costume in Wellington. Now two kids down the track Liz looks after all of our commercial clients and has created some masterful costumes for corporate clients in the Wakatipu.

Emily is our Front of House gal. With a rich knowledge in costuming from film experience and her fantastic organisational skills any client is in safe hands with our one true-blue local girl.

Together the team is formidable.
