House of Hank designs paraded at world premier of Lord of the Rings??

Wellington menswear label House of Hank will be making a splash on the red carpet at the world premier of the Lord of the Rings, Return of the King, in Wellington tonight.

Actor Andy Serkis who plays Gollum in the film, Executive Producer Rick Baer and various cast and crew have selected to don House of Hank designs for the most prestigious event in New Zealand film history.

??The atmosphere is electric,?? says House of Hank designer and director Hank Cubitt. ??It has been so exciting working with these men to create the outfits they will wear when they celebrate the culmination of their efforts with the rest of the world.??

Cubitt says the designs we will see are tailored to each individual, with the House of Hank trademark twist allowing their personality and the sense of occasion to shine through. ??The walk down the red carpet is going to be magic for them!,?? he says.

The world premier of the ultimate film in the Lord of the Rings trilogy is scheduled for 6:00pm at the Embassy Theatre, with celebrities, cast and crew making their way down the red carpet from 3:30pm today.
