New Zealand’s Pumpkin Patch launches its clothing range in Mexico
On 8 November 2012 Pumpkin Patch, the renowned New Zealand children’s clothing brand, was officially launched in Mexico, complete with a well-attended children’s fashion show.
The New Zealand Ambassador to Mexico, Christine Bogle participated in the event with representatives from Pumpkin Patch’s North America staff.
Mexico is Pumpkin Patch’s first Latin American market. The clothing range for girls and boys will be stocked by retail giant “Liverpool”, and will be distributed nation-wide through 24 Liverpool department stores.
Pumpkin Patch is a New Zealand business with more than 20 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of children’s clothes, including clothing for babies and children up to 11 years old. Over the years, the brand has expanded into markets in Asia, Europe, and North-America, establishing itself as a reputable and innovative company.
Pumpkin Patch formed part of the trade delegation that accompanied the New Zealand Minister of Trade, Tim Groser, during his visit to Mexico in November 2010. During her comments this morning, Ambassador Bogle highlighted that “the relationship between Pumpkin Patch and Liverpool is one of the many positive examples of the exciting new trade opportunities between New Zealand and Mexico”, commenting that those opportunities would certainly increase with the successful conclusion of the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations of which Mexico is now a member.
Greg Vazquez, North America Sales Representative for Pumpkin Patch, recognized the work done by Liverpool’s team and thanked all the people involved in this morning’s launch.
