New Zealand Fashion Week Daily Recap 28/8/14

NEW ZEALAND FASHION WEEK 2014 THURSDAY 28TH AUGUST
DAILY RECAP

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

Celine Rita

Celine Rita kicked off the final full day of NZFW forward season collections with a fun, exciting and bright collection. Celine showcased a variety of different prints and patterns ranging in colours from dark magenta, dark orange and royal blue, and emerald greens. The collection was Parisian inspired, with French New Wave actress Anna Karina being noted as the key muse.

New Generation – Young talent – Wilson Trollope, Inhale Apparel, Nomsa Mabuto, ITZME:

Wilson Trollope:
Wilson Trollope’s collection was delivered with a tailored and elegant feel, showcasing a variety of woollen trench coats, dresses and skirts, all with a mid hem, a common trend to look forward too. The show featured a colour palette of magenta, deep purple, navy and black.

Inhale Apparel:
Inhale brought an impressive debut to NZFW, a perfectly balanced collection of high fashion and street wear. Turquoise was a dominant shade in most pieces, particularly on cute lace dresses. Inhale Apparel’s simple and wearable clothing left a lasting impression as a definite brand to watch.

Nomsa Mabuto:
Nomsa Mabuto’s collection was bold, edgy and creative, letting the audience know that the designer isn’t afraid to push the limits. Featuring a showcase in a dominant green palette, featuring many oversized coats, Nomsa also incorporated a variety of African prints and fabrics, giving the audience a well and truly memorable performance.

ITZME:
New to the catwalk, ITZME presented an impressive range of tailored menswear with a female personality. The range included many oversized coats, mid hemlines and wide leg trousers, in palettes of red, navy and magenta.

Trish Peng

Trish Peng welcomed the afternoon with a gorgeous first look at her new spring/summer collection. The show began with a wide range of versatile separates and party dresses followed by her more traditional gowns, emphasizing the designer has much to offer. The signature favourite was the finale, a long sleeve white wedding dress with an extra long train.
COOP

As usual guests at COOP’s show weren’t disappointed - the fashion heavyweight putting on another stellar performance, bringing a refreshing pop of colour by showcasing a variety of eye-catching pop up art prints. The show had multiple recurring elements of messy hair, sneakers and khaki, grey and yellow prints.

RESENE DESIGNER SELECTION SHOW presented by Woman’s Day

This show was a guaranteed crowd pleaser, showcasing an outfit from every designer showing at NZFW, with some crowd favourite models adding to the action. The show finale saw Jockey underwear modelled by five All Blacks and All Blacks Sevens players, along side international model and television personality Nikki Phillips.

Annah Stretton

Annah Stretton is more than just a fashion label, and once again, she put on more than just a fashion show. Annah’s new collection was full of Cleopatra like wigs, and bold colours, leaving women feeling brave and empowered. The collection boasted palettes of bright orange and hot pink, that were balanced out by lots of black and pastel rose. Polka dots on polka dots, and with big bows also making an appearance, Annah has definitely inspired women to feel confident in their lives through fashion.

Hailwood:

After 15 years Hailwood never fails to put on a phenomenal show, with this year being no exception. His designs, which ranged from street wear ponchos through to stunning sequence evening dresses, certainly gave his audience something to talk about. One of the most stand out pieces would have to be the reinvention of his blue velvet dress. Hailwood has certainly not failed to deliver yet another inspiring NZFW show!

Kate Sylvester

Kate Sylvester made a welcome return to NZFW with a beautifully constructed collection presented in front of a packed showroom and a captive audience. Kate is celebrating her 21st birthday, and after tonight’s show it is clear to all why she obtained such an admirable milestone.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:
We caught up with DJ Forbes directly after their Jockey performance – here’s what he had to say:
DJ FORBES:
NZFW - “How did you feel during the show“
DJ - “Probably the worst feeling in terms of butterflies maybe even worse than a rugby game! Really glad to be fully clothed again!”
NZFW - “Did you enjoy being a model?”
DJ - “I wouldn’t say I enjoyed it, definitely a different vibe from what I am used to, it was just a bit of fun, I initially thought it would be pretty casual, but in the end it was quite intense!”
NZFW - “Have you been to any other shows this week?”
DJ - “No this was my first, I’ve been asked a few times, who would have thought I would end up on the runway before actually attending a show.“
NZFW - “How was the overall experience?”
DJ - “It was good, definitely ticked something off the bucket list.”

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
