Zuma’s clothing has travelled to all parts of the world, the look is indulgently international.

Zuma Originals retailed in Fremantle, the Hay Street Mall, and wholesaled from King Street, Perth, until the turn of the century, 2000.

Moreover, after a sustained period of joint-ventures by its Owners who have been working in other areas of the Fashion Industry in NZ, China & Australia, since 2000, the House of Zuma will be furthered strengthened by expertise & experience.
