See and buy at Newmarket Fashion Friday

Not all the fun and fashion at L’Oréal New Zealand Fashion Week is the preserve of official delegates and media.

Members of the public get their chance to see the collections at Newmarket Fashion Friday on October 25.

That’s when a number of the week’s exhibitors bring out their hottest summer 2002 designs, hair and make-up for the benefit for Kiwi fashion followers.

The action begins at 11am and then from 12.15pm every hour on the hour leading Newmarket fashion retailers will present seven parades featuring in-season fashion.

And if they like what they see, members of the public will be able to buy in-season garments from the Newmarket retailers participating in the parades.

Then in the evening, the Style on Stage catwalk show highlights the week’s autumn / winter 2003 designer collections.

Supported by the Newmarket Business Association, the full day’s programme will also feature makeovers by industry experts and you’ll be able to buy clothes and accessories from the exhibitors.

Express manicures and quick comb-ups will also be the order of the day in the convenient L’Oréal Paris Powder Room in the Town Hall just off Aotea Square.

And if it all gets too much to take in, visitors can relax in the Deutz Bar in the Town Hall or the Fashion Café in the Nokia Marquee in Aotea Square.

Tickets for the entire day are a mere $10 each or $5 more if you want to include the Style on Stage presentation in the Beaumont Quarter Great Hall on the Friday night at 8pm.

This group catwalk presentation represents the opportunity for the public to see and appreciate the best of L’Oréal New Zealand Fashion Week.

Style Magazine presents a collage of some of the best of the week’s collections providing members of the public with a preview of the top autumn / winter 2003 designs.

Shows parading in the Aotea Marquee during Newmarket Fashion Friday are:
12.15pm Route 66
1.15 Sulphur / Mooks
2.15 Hartleys / Rosemary Smith / Modes
3.15 Stella Gregg / d'collage
4.15 Annah s / C&F / Muse
5.15 Saks
6.15pm Judith McGaffin Couture / Delinquent / Paranoia

Meanwhile, 12 models dressed by participating Newmarket retailers and riding in the latest creations from car maker Jaguar will parade through Broadway on Saturday (October 19).

The Newmarket Fashion Friday’s Mile of Style is a precursor to L’Oréal New Zealand Fashion Week. It begins at Clovernook Rd at 12.30pm and travels along Broadway to the roundabout and back then back again through the main thoroughfare.

L’Oréal New Zealand Fashion Week managing director Pieter Stewart says Newmarket Fashion Friday is a great opportunity for the public to see what all the fuss is about.

Tickets for Newmarket Fashion Friday and Style on Stage are available from Ticketek on 0-9-307 5000.

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
