Hi , I’m Sim!
I was born and bred in Brazil, I’ve spent my 20s living in London and travelling in Europe. Just before I turned 30, I moved to this side of the world, living in Australia for a while and finally settling with my kiwi family here, calling New Zealand home since 2013.
Since I can remember, I have always been obsessed with everything related to dance and movement, being a dancer from age 5. Fashion has always been another passion of mine, I always loved dressing up and wearing lots of colours.
In 2015 I started Pretty Pinz, a small family business, because of my love for these two things – fashion and movement. And also because I wanted to help women of all sizes feel fabulous wearing their Activewear, with beautiful designs that would make them feel empowered,unique and confident .
I wanted to bring to New Zealand the gorgeous fabric that is Brazilian Supplex, with designs that flatter and compliment all curves. With prints, colours and different amazing fabrics – all made in my home country. All garments are produced by Brazilian women, who work from the comfort of their own homes and are able to help support their families.
As Pretty Pinz is a small business, nothing is mass produced and everything is made to last, which is great for the consumer and the planet.
