Amanda Dorset

Founder, Owner, Creative Director, Wilson & Dorset
Amanda is the Dorset in the Wilson and Dorset - Amanda founded W+D in partnership with her lover Ben Wilson over 15 years ago. Originally qualified as a lawyer, she practiced in civil litigation before moving to London and Sydney to work in management consulting. Her 'slightly weird' obsession with wool was developed during the years she marketed Icebreaker in the early days of the now-iconic New Zealand outdoor clothing brand. She is committed to redirecting this beautiful sheepskin resource from the waste stream and turning it into products that help people reconnect to nature and to themselves.
