A bit on Noah and Bowie – the babes
They literally are the funniest kids ever. Noah has the most gentle soul, he's special, like really really special. He's pretty much my best friend. He made me a mum at the age of 18 (just a baby !) so our bond is crazy beautiful. Bowie is an absolute firecracker with the kindest heart. She’s smart and knows how to push my buttons sometimes but she is also so incredibly empathic. She has got the most hilarious sense of humour as well. They just light up my whole world basically.
A bit on Noah and Bowie – the business
I started Noah & Bowie when I had Bowie. It was my way of being able to stay at home with my kids and earn some sort of income to help my family. I never imagined it would be where it is today; but I really am so grateful I get to do what I love everyday. (See more of Noah & Bowie here: https://www.noahandbowie.co.nz/ )
Best part about becoming a mother
I think it’s having these little people around you that just completely accept and love you for who you are.
The values you want to instil in your children
Honestly, I just want them to be good people. I want them to know that it’s cool to be kind and to always think before they act.
Bag of tricks! What are the essentials you carry in your Saben handbag bag to suit your days in the transition between work, fab events, and motherhood…
I always have a pressed foundation compact in my bag, my phone, and a water bottle …I always find stuff like chip packets and jump socks in there though! haha.
We catch up with ever-lovely Zoe Clark, INCO Studio owner and mother of three, to chat on our three favorite things: beauty, business and babies. Zoe candidly shares her thoughts on COVID, community, and the challenges that have come with 2020 (most chaotic year to date, am I right?). As a lover of NZ design, we couldn’t help but be inspired by her edgy yet effortless style, along the way. Read more on the blog…
Colour makes us happy, and in the case of the Saben Summer collection, brighter really is better. Read more about the moodboard behind the season and why we are so excited to welcome magenta styles.
