SELWYN TIMES Tuesday June 28 2016 29 Fashion Sisters’ racing business • By Emma-Jane McLennan ONE BEAT cancer, the other got out of a difficult relationship – that was what pushed sisters Carrie Broomhall and Liv Kinley to follow their dream of starting a business together. It had been a “particularly difficult” few years when they decided to launch their raceday head-wear brand, Mrs Broomhall said. “I had aggressive bowel cancer, and a big motivator when you’re in a bad situation in hospital like that is thinking about what you’d like to do when you get better.” Ms Kinley added: “It’s been a pretty tough few years, but we’re pretty positive people.” The two were enjoying a glass of bubbly one evening at Mrs Broomhall’s family home in the country, where Ms Kinley moved in after a relationship break-up, when they had their “watershed moment”. “We’d been making fascinators for years and everyone had always told us we should go into business. We really wanted to, and it was the right time. We just decided – let’s do it.” Ms Kinley had come from a 10-year stint in Auckland, working at the Auckland Racing Club where she helped organise fashion in the field events. The two have horse racing in their blood. Their parents met at the races, their fondest childhood memories are getting dressed up for family days out at Motukarara, and they have been inspired by their mother’s love of race-day fashion. “Mum always had big boxes GLAM: Sisters Carrie Broomhall and Liv Kinley show off one of their headpieces-in-progress. PHOTO: EMMA-JANE MCLENNAN of hats, she still does, and they’d all come out before race day so we could pick one. Then she’d make bookings for the dressmaker and get us all sorted. She was always well-dressed,” Mrs Broomhall said. When the sisters started making their own fascinators, friends quickly caught on. They wanted to put their orders in, too. The brand, Show Pony, was soft-launched earlier this year. Ms Kinley focuses on the financials, Mrs Broomhall the design side. The sisters sell through their website, Facebook, Instagram and Etsy – and now the New Zealand Cup season is finished, they are turning their focus overseas. “We sold a huge amount for the Kentucky Derby, it was crazy, we’ve got clients all over the United States and the United Kingdom. And we even sold one recently for Ingrid Michaelson, a singer who has like 800,000 followers,” Ms Kinley said. The two knew it was going well when the staff at three separate post shops knew them by name. They are sending hats all over the world, and the brand is really taking off. One of its first overseas customers was a woman in New York. She has now bought not one, but three, headpieces from the pair. Whether it’s ‘off the rack’ or custom-made, Ms Kinley says it is important those wearing the pieces feel like “a show pony or a princess” on the day “We’re honestly so geeky, we’ll be like to each other ‘have you put love in that box?’ before we send the hats away. You want the person to open it and just be so excited.” What you were wearing Dang Trun, 37, building supervisor, of Riccarton Jacket: Dolce & Gabbana Jeans: Dsquared2 Shoes: Dartmouth “I’m into my brand names and good designs. My favourite brands are Givenchy, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana.” ​ Sharaine Barrett, 29, sales and marketing representative, of Spreydon Jacket and Top: H&M (American brand) Scarf: Louis Vuitton Pants: Cotton On Shoes: Witchery “I’m basically the opposite of casual. I like the corporate look during the week and, in the weekends, I mix it up a bit. I love heels, I’m always wearing heels, never flats. Nothing too bright for me either, I wear lots of neutrals.” HAVE YOU BEEN TO SEE US LATELY? Call in today for a full supply of fresh fruit and vegetables.
