Up-and-coming designer, Anabelle Wilson, has opened a brand new Wilson Trollope store in Wellington’s CBD. The Victoria Street store will be a permanent addition to the Wellington retail scene and follows a string of successful pop-up stores Wilson opened over the last year. Wilson’s new store is stocked with her new Spring/Summer 2018 collection Les Parisienne, which was inspired by the Occupation of Paris during World War Two. The collection features soft colours, florals and lace, with inspiration from crisp military tailoring.

Wilson studied at Otago and Central Saint Martins, and named her brand Wilson Trollope after both her grandmothers who taught her dressmaking and inspired her career in fashion.
