Jules and Monique have been friends since leaving school. Their love of clothes had brought them together often – working together at Chlorofile on Ponsonby Road, selling Jules' label J Clark in London and now at their own shop Dalston in Auckland. Dalston has taken its name from the vibrant and diverse East End of London where both Jules and Monique lived and hung out before returning home to New Zealand with their families.
Dalston designs are about classic feminine styling that are easy to wear and make you look and feel good. Our own collections use fabrics sourced from around the world and are full of prints and colour. Quality is very important to us and the Dalston range is made locally in New Zealand.
