Life Is A Martini - Dress For The Occasion!

Bombay Sapphire brings one of fashion's rising stars to NZ Runway.

The imagination and design brilliance that won Nelson woman, Claire Prebble, the supreme Award at this year's World of Wearable Arts will be the toast of NZ Runway at the Bombay Sapphire stand. (October 22-25)

With its global commitment to the best in design, Bombay Sapphire has asked Claire to stamp her award winning style on their presence at the Viaduct lifestyle show.

Claire will display three of her designs in Auckland over Labour Weekend.
'Lunaria' inspired by the lunaria plant and its translucent seed pods is a flesh coloured ethereal dress made of silk, organza and stirling silver. 'Avante Garden' a dress inspired by the natural world is highlighted with copper flowers and leaves and 'Nymph', inspired by the clean flowing NZ rivers is a wedding dress made from blue fabric with a silver headdress, top and belt.

At just 18, Claire has been designing and creating clothes since the age of eight
Claire is the youngest ever recipient of the Supreme WOW Award and is well poised for a career in fashion, planning to one day own her own design company.

Bombay Sapphire Brand Manager Mia Hansson says Claire's stunning designs are a perfect fit with Bombay Sapphire's international reputation for supporting talented designers around the world and are a wonderful opportunity to help New Zealand's emerging designers gain the recognition they deserve.
