BeSpoke Returns!

BeSpoke Returns!

Returning to Silo Park in 2016 is an afternoon to celebrate stylish cycling, thanks to Auckland Transport. Enter the competitions below to win the gorgeous prizes of a RAINS backpack (very nice), Knog bike lock, Nutcase helmet and a Two Wheel Cool Helmet Light.

Be at the Frocks 'F' Fashion tent at 2pm to draw the winner of these super stylie gems!

Simply upload snaps of you and your bike posing as 'vogue on north wharf' and / or 'Blue steel on the Pink Path' to Instagram before 1pm this Sunday and you are in the draw! More details here:

Fashion and bicycles come together along the waterfront with markets offering beautiful bikes, gorgeous garments and amazing accessories. Riding activities will keep the whole family on their wheels, and local retailers will be on hand for advice and test rides.

BeSpoke represents the basic truth of everyday cycling: you don't need special clothing to ride a bike – and you can look stylish in the process.

Refashioned on Freyberg

Join us for a dreamy afternoon of sustainable styles, fashion drawing, beautiful teas and gentle sounds at Re-fashioned on Freyberg Square.

Grab a seat in the shade (or bring a hat!), set yourself up with free drawing materials and sketch outfits from the High Street District’s top vintage and recycled fashion merchants and displayed by our lovely life models in a special fashion illustration edition of the Drawing Club under the guidance of artist Paris Kirby. And styled by the magnificent Lucia Holloway.

Bohemia Tea Co will be serving up complimentary custom tea blends, DJ Charlotte Red will be spinning sweet vintage tunes, Frocks on Bikes will make a guest appearance kitted out in recycled and vintage fashions and Chris Melville will round off the day with a live singing performance.

Refashioned on Freyberg is part of Heart of the City's 10 Days of Fashion in the City:

Big Frocks Announcement next week...
To finish, there is a seriously exciting monthly event we are orchestrating to meet new cycle people in your neighbourhood and have a fun night. Stay pressed to the ground for the next mail out...
