Utilizing resources we already have, to bring colour and sustainability into your wardrobe!

Hi, I'm Bea the artist and creator behind Heke design- an upcycled fashion brand from New Zealand.
Australian born, raised in Canada and now residing in New Zealand, Im a self taught designer who has been sewing, crafting or painting since childhood.
Between 1986-92 I designed under the label Beazworx Vancouver.

I have also spent many years in the music industry, and had the priviledge of travelling around the world looking after wardrobe for the likes of k.d lang, Diana Krall and Leonard Cohen
12 years ago I moved to New Zealand, it was then I discovered the sheer volume of clothing discarded from op shops.
As an avid recycler,I felt something HAD to be done.
Heke design was born.
Upcycling was the perfect challenge and combination, of creativity with a real purpose:
To reduce waste.
Pretty much everything I use is destined for the landfill.
“And the artist in me LOVES to seeing people wear colour”
I would love to see upcycling become mainstream, and for consumers to be more aware and mindful of the story behind their clothing.
