Wise Words


The Night BookTop New Zealand designer, Trelise Cooper showed restraint when she decided not to be offended by Charlotte Grimshaw’s novel, The Night Book.

Restraint is something that this talented designer is not known for with her amazing creations, which has made her top choice for many New Zealand and international socialites and Hollywood stars when selecting a new gown.

Her elaborate dresses and the women who wear them have been ridiculed in Grimshaw’s new novel.   When interviewed by the Herald on Sunday, Cooper said she was flattered at the mention, not offended.

Trelise Cooper made non-fashion headlines when she tackled South Island designer Tamsin Cooper for copying her.  That time Trelise was protecting her brand, but in this case she saw the humour and a different form of flattery.
