CreativeMornings with Kristine Crabb
Friday 1st March, 8.00am-9.30am
The Basement Theatre
Kristine Crabb is a gentle powerhouse of creativity. She is led by her intuition and integrity, and her eponymous label, Miss Crabb, possesses a loyal fanbase that most creatives can only dream about.
For almost 15 years elegant and unique Miss Crabb pieces have been worn by women all over New Zealand and the world, with our prime minister Jacinda Ardern being a dedicated wearer. Kristine’s journey has been incredible and inspirational, beginning with Rip Shit and Bust in 2001 on K Road and growing into Miss Crabb on Ponsonby Road in 2004.
Kristine describes Miss Crabb as ‘much more than a fashion label, it’s an art project, a state of mind and a ‘culty’ family; I have had three children along the way which has added another dimension to things.’ This multiverse that Kristine inhabits grew another dimension when it was announced that on 31 March 2019 Miss Crabb would be closing its doors for the last time, taking the out-of-it creative force of Miss Crabb in a whole new direction.
Come hear about how you find SYMMETRY between creativity and commerce, motherhood and work, and get an insight into how to stay true to yourself as a creative.
