Who we are.
Lontessa is a fashion label from New Zealand-raised, Singapore-based designer.
Tessa Lont launched in 2014. Deeply immersed in the rich tapestry of Maori culture and the wild, magic beauty of her native New Zealand, Lont takes her inspiration from the lore of her people and thoughtful engagement with the sustainability of materials and the elevated life cycles of her garments.
Passionate about honouring materials and practice, Lont is proud to introduce possum fur outerwear to the globe and into the luxury sphere; leading the conversation on the conservation of New Zealand’s natural flora and sustainable hunting, not farming.
Lontessa is pleased to offer lines of Made-to-Order, Ready To Wear and Intimate Apparel.
