Westfield Style Pasifika Show Brings Fresh Energy To Fashion Week
King Kapisi will combine the street energy of his clothing label Overstayer with the elegance of designers Paula Coulthard and Nadine Freundlich at the freshest show in fashion week - Westfield Style Pasifika - which is a celebration of our place in the world. The show will include some live performances including King Kapisi who also has Steve Fergusson (NZ Olympic Kyaker), Isa Nacewa (Auckland Rugby), Ben Atiga (Auckland Rugby) modelling for OverStayer. Overstayer is a label with a unique take on Pacific Hip Hop urban culture. It is created by New Zealand hip hop producer and musician KING KAPISI. It fuses contemporary hip hop culture with a twist of the Pacific.
Paula Coulthard is the talent behind the high end fashion label Coulthard. She has a background in art, design and costume and is inspired by New Zealand's industrial, cultural and art history. Her garments surprise in their detail - from the cameo with a moko to the tiny fantail embroidered on a brilliantly tailored jacket.
Nadine Freundlich also has a passion for classic tailoring. There are two elements to her signature range: a seasonal fashion-driven collection, and an in house ready-to-wear range made up of tailored pieces and designer merino embellished with her signature Swarovski aramoana pattern.
