lorraine hall ~ the designer
HALL is the brainchild of Lorraine Hall, a Wairarapa-born designer brought up in the rag-trade whose earliest memories are of bolts of cloth and paper patterns.
Her vision was to create a label of contemporary, casual clothing accessible to all women, using the most beautiful natural materials and made entirely in New Zealand.
Lorraine is passionate about the need to keep local industry alive and thriving. Her team is made up almost entirely of talented Kiwis, thereby nurturing local skills, knowledge and quality workmanship.
That commitment to New Zealand talent has been justified. Since the HALL label launched in 2008, it's aesthetic of Scandinavian simplicity allied with natural materials has resonated with New Zealand women, and the label has gone from strength to strength.
Lorraine continues to create superb designs in her flagship store in the heart of Greytown, Wairarapa.

hall ~ the label
HALL clothing is defined by strong yet simple shapes, natural fibres and iconic graphics. A HALL garment flatters and enhances its wearer.
Made right here in New Zealand from the finest raw materials and with exquisite craftsmanship, HALL is sexy without being ostentatious, luxurious but also practical, directional yet timeless.
The Wairarapa-based label has a superbly minimalist aesthetic and prides itself on its wearability for women of all shapes and ages, with sizes ranging from 10-24 & XS-4XL.
