Stolen Girlfriends Club
Marc Moore grew up in Raglan and spent around 9 years as a competitive surfer on the NZ circuit. It wasn’t until the mid 2000’s when he needed back surgery (and a break from surfing) that he started to realize his creative potential. First he picked up the paint-brushes and put together a solo art show that was presented by Oyster magazine. The art show was called Stolen Girlfriends Club and was a hit, with artwork selling out in one night. Not content with just painting, he created a small collection of fashion pieces to see how far he could take it without any formal training. Always a believer in brand over product, he’s always been obsessed with creating a powerful brand that is a community. Engaging, entertaining, and enticing people with the brand, product and it’s shows. After over a decade in the industry, he still doesn’t know how to sew, but luckily he surrounds himself with a great team that help take the brand from strength to strength.
