About

Jane Avery is a Dunedin based fashion designer specialising in the production of limited edition, bespoke and one-of-a-kind garments and accessories.  

Her exclusive Lapin coats combine responsibly sourced New Zealand Wild Rabbit Eco-Fur with beautiful textiles from far flung corners of the world.  

Each handcrafted piece is a fresh offering in the world of fur fashion marrying a world of inspiring fabrics with a pest resource direct from the South Island’s mountainous high country.  

From a  land of extremes, where icy winter blasts whistle in from Antarctica, comes the motivation to transform an environmental pest into a conscious choice for those wishing for the warmth and luxury of fur. 

Lapin speaks to a love of couture, the creation of family heirlooms and the presentation of NZ Wild Rabbit Eco-Fur as a practical luxury eco-product. 

Viewings, consulatations  and fittings are by appointment. 

Jane welcomes long distance commissions with Lapin's bespoke service encompassing the sending of detailed drawings, fabric and fur samples and made-to-measure calico mock ups anywhere in the world. 

The intention is to share an  authentic collaboration and creative process in the making of a beautiful, tailor-made, slow-fashion garment.
