One dream, one hope, one person – Fearless Kiwis

Just how far does passion get you and why don’t you give up

Panel Session Proudly Presented By NZME


Kathryn had a shoe‐obsessed childhood. After graduating Massey Uni at 22 and choosing to ignore the naysayers, Kathryn is now New Zealand’s most successful shoe designer. She has boutique production houses in Italy, Spain, Portugal and China supplying 75 retailers across New Zealand and Australia.

13 years in, Kathryn still believes in her product, sticks to her vision and strives to “empower women by making them feel good in what they are wearing”.

Kathryn will share with you how far passion has carried her, and why she didn’t give up when things got tough ‐ how her vision has sustained her and kept her focus.
