Steph Miller launched her jewellery label Creeps and Violets in early 2013 and the quirky brand is known for its handmade pieces that are fun and youthful. Steph studied fashion at Otago Polytechnic from 2008 – 2010 and during that time she also took some jewellery courses but is mostly self taught. The name of her brand comes from the fact that she likes to combine opposites like harsh elements with feminine elements which makes for memorable pieces that are made to last.

We caught up with Steph to find out more about her brand, what inspires her and what you would never catch her wearing!

Describe your personal style and how it influences your brand?
I’m all about keeping it simple; tees, leather, denim, slip dresses and sneakers. Great everyday pieces that can ride through life with you, which is what Creeps and Violets is all about!

What is your all-⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠time favourite purchase?
Definitely my Rick Owens leather jacket, it goes with everything.

What wardrobe item should every woman invest in?
The list could go on but I think a timeless jacket that you can throw over anything is a must.

Do you have a style rule you always obey?
I don’t tend to follow any style rules, if it feels right then don’t think about it too much, just go with it!

What has been the highlight of your career so far?
I know this sounds cheesy but having a job that you feel excited to go to every day is the ultimate highlight.

What can’t you live without?
I live in Dunedin, so I would have to say a big knitted jumper and my dogs!

Finish this sentence – You would never catch me wearing…
It’s totally cliche but Crocs!
