Darla Clements - Sewer, designer and maker

Dare Darla is an ethical fashion brand based in Golden Bay, New Zealand. Every piece is designed and made by hand.
We make quality clothing for every day wear, for bodies of all shapes, ages and backgrounds. 

I design clothing that I like to wear and feel good in. 

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 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 a 1-2 week wait time. 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.

You can see a collection of my range at:
