Our first ever ‘Meet/Greet’ interview is with Liam Sharma - the brains behind Auckland-based gender neutral clothing brand, Modern Manners.
Originally starting out online and at the Wanderer Collective in Christchurch, Modern Manners used to have a little space in St. Kevin’s Arcade on Karangahape Road, where they showcased not only their simple streetwear, but also art from locals such as Samuel Liu and Tabitha Van Der Westhuizen. Liam has since moved to New York City to continue the pursuit of the Modern Manners brand!
Their designs have been worn by the likes of Lorde and Theophilus London - their ‘Broke and Famous’ hat even features in a Snapchat video with none other than Karlie Kloss.
