Sully's

66A Ghuznee Street, Te Aro, Wellington

View map

On one of Wellington's trendiest streets, Sully's is the place to be for chic, independent fashion.

Uber cool and a little bit quirky, the boutique is owned by Hannah Sullivan, a familiar face in the capital's fashion retail industry. Wanting to bring a slice of the global fashion scene to the capital, Hannah has handpicked all the brands stocked at Sully's. Most of the labels are small and independent with an interesting story to tell - which Hannah is always happy to share with her customers.

While much of Sully's curated collection comes from overseas, a few labels have been sourced from closer to home. Aucklander Zoe McBride's jewellery and cosy creations from Wellington Knits can be found in-store, alongside a thoughtful selection of fashion, accessories, and skincare. All of Sully's products are ethically made from recycled or organic materials.
