Tragically we ALL lost our amazing friend V (Veronica Hendry) on 27th September 2020.

A truly special soul, V was selfless, generous, kind, funny, sassy, witty, creatively talented beyond belief, and always unapologetically her FABULOUS self.

V left her unique stamp on all of our hearts wherever she went. Originally from Foxton in New Zealand, V worked and travelled the world: from small town Whanganui where she started her fashion journey, then on to Auckland, Melbourne, Nottingham, Nuremburg, London, Brighton, and most recently Bournemouth, where she inspired the next generation of young design graduates with her knowledge, experience, passion and endless encouragement and enthusiasm.

It’s now time for us to take V home one last time. This page being dedicated to raise funds in support of this complex process, and the associated costs of returning V to be with her much loved family in New Zealand.

All donations will be hugely appreciated, and please feel free re-post and share this platform as far and wide as you can in support.

We would also encourage you ALL to leave messages and share memories of V with her family on here where you can. 

Thank you ALL in advance
