About Cara Cotton
Cara Cotton would take the shirt off your back if she fancied it finding old shirts with interesting design features such as different collars, prints and detail are something she gets a kick out of. As co-designer of label Cherry Cotton Candy, Dunedin-born Cara is always keeping an eye out for old-skool shirts, especially the Lichfield-brand your dad used to wear. She is inspired by everyday people and influenced by past memories and nostalgia. Cara's personal tom-boy style and interest in classic sportswear and retro 70s clothing adds a colourful dimension to the label.

Cara, 23, attended Logan Park High School in Dunedin before studying Fashion and Design at Otago Polytechnic and passing her level 7 Diploma in Fashion and Design with merit. She started worked at Carlson in 2001 as a production assistant before quickly moving into design assistant and patternmaker roles. Nowadays, alongside designing for Cherry Cotton Candy, she is kept busy as assistant designer and PA to Tanya Carlson.

About Cherry Cotton Candy
Cherry Cotton Candy burst onto the fashion scene in 2004 when they had a surprise mini show at New Zealand Fashion week as part of the fashion show of their boss Tanya Carlson. The brainchild of Cara Cotton and Cherry Austin-Spivey, Cherry Cotton Candy is described as a mixture of urban wear and out-there Japanese fashions with elements of rockabilly style . The winter 2005 collection featured girlish, sewn-on cherry fruit patches and screen-printed tops paired with cutesy tight jeans and hot pants, anything but conventional. But the girls' individual sense of style was just the thing New Zealand fashionistas wanted, gaining them fashion fans and earning them great industry reviews. Pictured is a Cherry Cotton Candy look from New Zealand Fashion week 2004.
