Basquesse to move to Australia

Filed by Lucire staff/July 29, 2010/0.51

After losing Andrea Moore to Auckland, fashion label Basquesse has announced that it, too, will depart Wellington—for the larger market of Sydney.
   Basquesse founder and designer Viviana Pannell has said that the Wellington boutique will close at the end of October 2010. Basquesse reopens in Sydney in the first quarter of 2011.
   Pannell cited both family and business opportunities across the Tasman Sea, and acknowledged that part of Basquesse’s income was from international buyers. Being based in Sydney brings the label closer to some of its clientèle.
   ‘During my years leading and designing for Basquesse here in New Zealand, I have met a great number of wonderful women (and men) who have inspired and encouraged me. Some have become not just my best clients but very dear friends. I thank them all from the bottom of my heart because no artist can ever be fulfilled without those who love her art,’ says Pannell.
   There will be a closing sale, while the made-to-measure service is expected to continue till the doors shut at the end of October.
