As always there are a huge number of shows on at NZFW. We’d love to see them all, but sometimes that just not possible. Here’s a few of the shows we are most excited to see this year…
We saw Lela Jacobs’ show a few years back and it was amazing. Broody, spooky and slightly sci-fi. For a little while we felt like we were inside a young adult dystopian novel. This year, Lela Jacobs features with Jimmy D, Maaike and Ovna Ovitch in an intriguing group showcase.
Every year Adrian Hailwood’s designs just blow me away. Even when I expect it. Even when I try to prepare myself to be wooed by the beautiful clothes, I still end up ooh-ing and aah-ing. Maybe it's because Hailwood speaks to my inner magpie with the clever use of sparkly and foil fabrics? Whatever the reason I am super excited to see the new collection.
Last year, Stolen Girlfriends Club tried to kill us with their ubiquitous SGC espresso cocktails! But this year, we are ready. Oh yes we are. Who knows what will happen? We’ve attended one of their shows at a speedway and another at an old theatre. The collections are always breath-taking and somehow fitting with the theme of the chosen venue of the night.
It’s always the shows that are a little hard to envision that tickle our fancy. How does one best showcase a range of luxury leather goods like Yu Mei? We are dying to find out!
We are super excited to see this show by this New Zealand label, created by BFFs Natalia Baird and Lucille Ness, so kinda a little like The-Madisons! We are excited to see their fresh and simple designs at NZFW this year! Also, stay tuned for an interview with Blackeyepeach, coming soon!
