Stretton avant garde gowns set to ‘wow’ Wellington

Stretton avant garde gowns set to ‘wow’ Wellington

Annah Stretton embraces the iconic World of WearableArt™ show which kicks off this Thursday in the capital with six avant garde wedding gowns that were showcased at London Fashion Week.

Annah and her bespoke gowns have just returned from the catwalk of London where they were showcased as part of the charity fashion show, Splendours of the Commonwealth, where money was raised to educate underprivileged girls of the Commonwealth.

These one-of-a-kind gowns involved many days of work to design and construct hundreds of meters of fabric and have been specifically dyed to create a bespoke colour palette.

“They are gorgeous examples of truly avant garde handwriting and are a must see for every follower of avant garde fashion,” says Annah.

The collection of gowns will be exclusively displayed at the Annah Stretton Wellington store on the corner of Customhouse Quay and Hunter Streets as part of her WOW celebrations for the next three weeks.
