MisteR: Not So Grimm

Mickey Lin and Ra Thomson of fashion label MisteR lost their workroom in the Christchurch earthquake of 22 February 2011.

With help and support from many quarters, they were able to keep their small business going. Just 6 months later, they showed at New Zealand Fashion Week for the first time. Mickey and Ra felt their collection had been blessed with a fairytale ending, so they called it Not So Grimm – a metaphor for their journey since the earthquakes.
