Silver Ferns step-out in Trench Coat Suit

Sep '06
Temepara George, Maria Tutaia and Anna Scarlett were selected for the cat-walk rather than the court this morning, to model the Silver Ferns' new off-court look.

The 3 glamorous netballers were the first to see the uniform the team will wear to official events from October. It's traditionally referred to in sporting circles as "Number ones" but conservative is an unlikely description for the 'Trench Coat Suit'.

"The finished product is stunning. Temepara, Maria and Anna looked very stylish. We're impressed with the level of detail that has gone into each garment", said Netball New Zealand CEO, Shelley McMeeken.

VICKI TAYLOR'S DESIGN - Black belted Trench Coat - Reversible two tone grey summer knit top with cowl neck – 100 percent merino scoop neck dark grey winter top with textured fern freehand sewn on side - Black wool-blend pant with wide leg - Low slung leather belt by Limited Express In July, Netball New Zealand commissioned Vicki Taylor of Auckland's Taylor Boutique to design a "modern" suit for the team.

Vicki was honoured to be asked. "The Silver Ferns stand for some very positive values such as success, commitment, high achievement, camaraderie and a healthy lifestyle and it's such a privilege to clothe them", said Vicki Taylor.

The Team is also excited about having garments that are not only stylish but individually fitted. "It was really important to us that the garments were made in New Zealand and to have the expertise of a top New Zealand designer like Vicki Taylor working with our Ferns is fantastic", said Netball New Zealand CEO, Shelley McMeeken.
