In 2006 Auckland based designer Jenny Drury saw a gap in the Australasian market between boutique and streetwear with feminine styling and a distinctive creative edge, so she created Ketz-Ke, to offer quality, casual, style led contemporary women’s clothing that stands out from the crowd.
The label quickly developed an avid fan base that delighted in the brands fantastic fit, distinctive colours, versatile fabrics and reasonable price points.
After four highly successful seasons Jenny created a trans-seasonal basics range (Ketz-Ke ESSENTIALS) and later expanded the labels offering with a small selection of sophisticated garments, known as Ketz-ke BLACK on top of their ever popular accessories range of bags and belts.
“I am very passionate about designing Ketz-ke to provide women with continually evolving style options that sees them dressed with an edge as well as function and wearability” says Jenny.
Ketz-ke is available in over 85 retail outlets throughout New Zealand and available internationally in Australia, China, and Rarotonga.
After 10 successful years with Ketz-ke and big demand for the brand a sister label LEO + BE has been launched.
The LEO+BE identity references designers’ Jenny’s star sign and Brenda’s initial, and will release four collections a year. The motivation to add an additional string to their design bow came about when the pair saw scope for an injection of playfulness to the current millennial fashion focused offering in New Zealand.
“We know the young fashion lover in New Zealand to be bold and trend-led, yet we’re also mindful that she is focused on affordable, versatile fashion. LEO+BE strikes a balance by staying authentic to our kiwi roots, and presents a collection of ever changing must-haves to the girl seeking mix and match pieces with flair,” says Jenny
