“Wellington menswear designer will heat up Wellington Fashion Festival”


Fusion is the long-awaited debut collection from House of Hank. Promising an evening of fire and passion, the new Spring/Summer ready-to-wear range by designer Hank Cubitt is set to alight Wellington’s fashion scene.

With the models striding down the very 10 metre cutting table that the garments were made on, this performance will set spectators on fire.

“This show celebrates fun and passion for fashion. I have chosen models that reflect the combination of youth and wisdom that I see in my customers everyday that inspires me,” says Hank Cubitt.

The fashion show is open to the public from 07:30pm, but will commence with a function for invited made-to-measure customers of House of Hank.

The designs will fuse colour, texture, fabric – and that trademark House of Hank twist - into inspired, fresh creations.

“Presenting my work to a far-wider audience than ever before is creatively exciting. This inaugural launch is a long-awaited dream,” says Hank Cubitt. He also recognises his journey. “I applaud my House of Hank team for their support and effort to get to this point.”

The evening will celebrate the efforts of past and present and also welcome the exciting future of this up-and-coming Wellington designer.
