Pookie Blezard has been the creative director of Pazuki for over 30 years, engaged in a continuous evolution of printing and embroidery techniques, colour and fabric experimentation – producing women’s clothes and accessories for anyone who wants something special.
Brought up in Barnes, South West London, by musician parents in a house where nothing had been thrown away for generations. “I was always knitting, sewing, drawing, making patchwork – and roaming free around Barnes Common on my bicycle. In fact nothing much has changed, I’m still doing all of the above!” “Everyone should wear clothes that make them feel good. I was always allowed to wear whatever I liked as a child, (usually a strange combination of hand-me-downs from country cousins).”
“Down with black! It may make you feel thin but it seems so joyless. I know I’m a print designer, but a woman who walks into a room wearing beautiful colours or a great print, immediately attracts and intrigues me. And that is what I love to create.”
Pazuki’s ethos is to enable women to feel confident and express themselves as individuals through pattern and colour, with no rules or regulations.
