WE, THE PEOPLE
EMPOWERED AND INSPIRED TO BE YOU
SOCIALLY & ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE
NURTURING THE POWER OF CREATIVITY
PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF CREATIVITY WHILST ELEVATING AND ADVOCATING ITS POWER
PERA MAY focuses on forging a future within the creative sector that educates, empowers and inspires a ‘new age’ of creative innovation and ethical consumption. PERA MAY exists not simply to create more ‘things’ in this world but to educate and advocate towards the future of a conscious, inclusive and revitalised fashion system. Our motivation is a creative and cultural revolution, our medium is fashion.
We create clothing to be treasured and admired. Conscious of the impact of fashion production, each style is limited and New Zealand made. PERA MAY garments will not only serve their utility as clothing but will be your very own work of art - unique, considered and made to be loved by you forever.
Like a PERA MAY garment, you too are unique. PERA MAY recognises this and celebrates individuality within each person. We ask the question - since when did society have the power to tell us what we should wear? Our vision is that you will find inclusivity, encouragement and your truth in our rebellious approach to design.
PERA MAY is playing with the concept of creating seasonless, timeless drops. This approach encourages conscious buying. What you purchase in February can be worn with what you purchase in November, for that year and the years to follow. We sell direct to consumers and retailers that align with our vision. In doing this, we can break the ‘trend aspect’ of seasonal cycles and the concept of clothing devaluing over time.
A PERA MAY lover shares our vision for a future that's different from our current path. You'll champion the journey of being socially responsible and advocate for inclusivity amongst all communities. We’re free, fun and sick of societal norms. Together we encourage each other to express our truth.
PERA MAY presents a vision of the future where continuous inspiration is found in challenging the ‘norms.’ It’s weird...and it’s just how we like it.
Pera was born and bred on the South Island's West Coast of New Zealand.
Growing up in a creative environment, surrounded by untouched nature and small town circumstances, Pera's dreams soared.
Fueled by her curiosity of the world and human behaviours, she channels her exploration through conceptual designs and relentless storytelling.
Pera believes that dressing is about more than utility. It’s an opportunity to express and integrate beautiful and inspiring designs into our everyday lives that make us feel on top of the world, all whilst leaving a positive impact on the society around us.
You can be anyone you want to be when you put on a PERA MAY design.
Create an escape, an empowering moment, generate a laugh or promote a future that is inclusive, socially responsible and nurtured.
Pera is beyond grateful for her opportunity to carry out this vision and cannot wait to share it with you!
PERA MAY is a VISION.
A place to dream, find your style, launch a revolution and let your imagination run wild ---
