I'm on a mission to help reduce New Zealand's highest rate of skin cancer in the world!
Kiwi's love the outdoors and this is not about to change. Lissyclothing provides a stylish versatile alternative from the rash shirt. I have designed sundresses which are made from Eco-friendly fabric that protects skin from 98% UV rays, and they are manufactured here in NZ. Now women have a dress that takes them from the beach to sidewalk, they look good, and their skin is protected from sun damage.
What makes you passionate about what you do?
I am incredibly excited to be combining my two loves, health and fashion. Coming from a medical background I feel very driven to educate about the effects of the sun while also offering a solution. If I can help reduce a number of skin cancers through women adding sun protection clothing to their wardrobes then my job is done.
What's been the hardest part about your business journey and what have you learnt from that?
Changing from one career to another has been the greatest challenge for me. I was previously nursing for over 16 years so I’ve had to require a whole new skill set to work on this business. Learning about fabrics, design, manufacturing, branding, marketing, website design and the list goes on. I've learnt to ask lot's of questions, thoroughly research everything and have benefited hugely from my VIP WE membership. The wealth of knowledge and support I have received has been incredibly helpful.
