Full Steam Ahead For Wellington Fashion Week

With the new year upon us, the Wellington Fashion Week team is excited to announce the first collection of designer involvement and structure.

WORLD, Trelise Cooper, Starfish, Kathryn Wilson, My Boyfriends Back, Two WORLDS, Sabatini and Goodness have all been hasty to sign on, with 32 designer spots available across the week.

This year the event will be structured into three group shows; Spring-Summer 2013-14, Autumn- Winter 2013, and the beautiful Bride and Groom Couture Bridal show.

Managing Director Cameron Sneddon outlines that seasonal differentiation on the catwalk was an important aspect to perfect this year.

“We want to be able to showcase seasonal collections separately in order to allow for the right trade and consumer balance. We want to have something for everyone and make it really easy for our guests to choose which show suits their taste and preferences”.

Alongside the seasonal group shows, the week will see seven glitzy individual shows, and a further six unique off-site shows around the capital.

The event taking place from the 3rd- 7th April will be held in a beautiful 21m by 40m marquee at Odlins Plaza on the water front, overlooking the stunning view of the Wellington harbour.

The venue will seat 376 guests, and will be equipped with a VIP bar, media suite and bloggers corner.

Tickets go on sale on February 4th and are available from $29.00 exclusively at www.wfweek.co.nz and through Dash tickets.

Review: The Magic Flute - Magic Moments

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
