Fashion label World clothing not entirely NZ-made (721960) by iSpy

World World was established in 1989 by Denise L’Estrange Corbet and Francis Hooper. L’Estrange Corbet is a graduate of the London College of Fashion while Hooper gained experience by working for John Galliano and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons. While they were mostly known as an alternative brand throughout the 90s, they shot to mainstream success in 2001, when their ‘21st Century Origami Dress’ attracted media attention. While their aesthetic may earn them class rebel status, their accolades have been nothing short of prestigious: in 2004, they were the first New Zealand brand to hold a retrospective at the Auckland Museum, and in 2002, Denise became the first female New Zealand fashion designer to be awarded an MNZM (formally an MBE) by Queen Elizabeth II for her contributions to the New Zealand Fashion Industry.
