ABOUT THE DESIGNER

BEHIND THE PRINTS

This Spring, Summer Creative Director Pookie Blezard has made a close study of the language of flowers.  During painting she found close connection with the shapes and textures of the petals.  See below poem - some of which appears on the Perfume design.  On a trip to the Piedmonte region of Italy, Pookie captured the ethereal,  fresh beauty of the surrounding meadows, full of delicate Daisies and Dandelions.

Pookie also drew inspiration from marbled, plaster walls and antique tiles for added rich textures.

Inspiration

Flower poem

If I stare at a flower for a long time, It's like entering a whole other world,
Every flower has it's own personal message.

Learn the rhythm of a flower,
Every petal is unique,
Its infinite beauty and perfection
Arranged in an endless kaleidoscope.

I fall in love staring at a flower,
It opens my heart,
And the more I look, the deeper I fall.

Even the tiniest flower takes my breath away.

PAZUKI ETHOS

PAZUKI is slow fashion. The prints are created from oil paintings, where hours have been spent staring into flowers and mixing colours. The paintings in turn, are rich in individual personal style that has been absorbed from a life-time of travelling, as well as loving being at home and living in London. 

Our digital fabric printing machine runs slowly to reproduce all the texture and detail of the original design, and the ink drops are very fine, unlike the high speed printers used by many companies. Printing is our passion and we care about colour and fine detail.       

Each of our shirts for instance, is hand-cut and takes 5 hours to stitch. 

We keep every scrap of fabric, even teeny weeny bits which we use for patchwork, making one-off scarves which we sell in Japan.

PAZUKI is an Independent Company.  Our ethos is based on an irrepressible need to to be creative and a desire to produce clothing that makes the wearer express their own individuality.

Here at PAZUKI we believe in cost per wear and saving up for something you love that you can keep for years. Our customers are often spotted in much loved vintage Pazuki pieces that have been in their wardrobe for decades.
