Design Team

Imogen Tunnicliffe

Senior Designer

Imogen joined the Città team in 2003 as the first in-house designer for the brand. The design team has since grown to include four full time and two part time designers. With a Masters in Fine Arts, majoring in Print, Imogen has lived and worked as an artist in both the UK and New York. Imogen's work as a print maker was exhibited both in New Zealand and overseas. As Head Designer for Città Imogen oversees all aspects of the design process and is directly responsible for developing and researching the seasonal themes, colour palettes as well as producing textile and product designs.

Imogen makes an important contribution to the Città brand and our seasonal collections with her in-depth research into the themes which is then translated into original product and textile designs.

"Developing ideas with knowledge behind you creates design with meaning and integrity - it gives you a story to tell."

Carina Ferguson

Product & Textile Designer

Carina Ferguson has been an integral part of the Città team since 2006. Carina graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and travelled extensively before joining the Città team. Carina's role at Città is in product and textile design, working closely with the head designer and the buying team to create the winter and summer seasonal collections.

The process of taking an idea or pattern to a developed drawing and then integrating it with product design is what keeps Carina inspired in her work.

"It's so satisfying seeing an illustration in your diary become a physical item!"

Amy Tonkin

Product & Textile Designer

Amy Tonkin joined the Città team in February 2011 as a product and textile designer.

Amy's design background is primarily in fashion, having spent 14 years working for New Zealand fashion labels Susan Scarf (previously named Silkroad) and Zambesi. Amy has a Diploma in Graphic Design and worked as a graphic designer before joining our design team. At Città Amy is involved with product and textile design across the collection. She greatly enjoys being able to combine her skills and experience in fashion and accessories design with her technical skills in graphic design. Amy is passionate about the process of creating cohesive collections.

"There's always a phase in the middle where things seem a bit scary and you can't quite feel the collection as an entity yet - it's still floating in your mind. Then slowly but surely things start to come together and take form, and suddenly you see the collection before you and it's really exciting (and relieving!)."

Holly Clarke

Product & Textile Designer

Holly joined the Città team in 2013 as a Product & Textile Designer.

After studying Fashion Design at Instituto per l'Arte e Restauro in Florence, Italy Holly began her design career with Costume National. Since then she has broadened her design skills and experience across graphic, product and textile design and brand development. Before joining Città Holly co-founded Curtis & Clarke, where she designed a broad range of New Zealand made interior objects and textiles for their Ponsonby boutique.

Research is an important part of the design process for Holly, from historical design references, to children's library books and contemporary exhibitions and blogs. Creativity comes from people and places around her.

"I enjoy seeing the collection come together, everyone approaches it from a different perspective and that diversity and collaboration with other designers can be a lot of fun."

David Moreland

Furniture & Product Designer

David Moreland joined the Città team in August 2014 as a contributing furniture and product designer.

Since gaining a degree in 3-D Design at Unitec, David has developed his career primarily in furniture design and production. He worked for David Trubridge, manufacturing steam bent timber furniture and spent 8 years as a designer and head of production at Simon James Design.

At Città, David is excited about the future scope and possibilities for the brand, which is a growth process he enjoys being a part of.

"The scale of the production is amazing, which opens up all sorts of opportunities. This makes the scope of a project so much wider and the possibilities far more open. I'm looking forward to exploring some of these in depth this year."

David also has his own brand of furniture and lighting in the market, which can be viewed at www.davidmorelanddesign.com

Julia Fong

Clothing & Textile Designer

Julia joined the Città team in 2014 as a clothing and textile designer.

After gaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a design major and training in pattern making and garment construction, Julia began working in the fashion industry for respected designer Marilyn Sainty in 1997.

Before joining Città, Julia established her own label "Julia Fong" designing high end womenswear, known for its beautiful cuts and offbeat, sculptural styling.

Julia enjoys collaborating in a workroom where designers still paint and draw their concepts and designs by hand.

"I really enjoy collaborating with a team of designers. All are experts in their fields who intuitively understand the exciting process of developing a sketch into a finished product".
