The Department Store Autumn/Winter 2012 Show

Tuesday, March 27, 2012



Kicking the weekend off with a bang, the clever team at The Department Store put on an outstanding event that certainly got  last Friday’s party started.

Packing the stunningly structured store to the rafters with a stylish crowd of fashion fanatics, the doors opened at 7pm sharp and the venue filled quickly to capacity. At dead on 8pm the epic runway show got underway with the biggest cast of babe models I’ve ever seen at an NZ show. With the crowd packed into every nook and cranny of the store, the models wound their way through each floor, up and down the striking circular staircase that winds it’s way through the heart of the store.


Karen Walker’s stellar ‘The American Girl’ collection was first up on the runway, with beautiful brights and prints in ladylike silhouettes coming to life under the lights. The Department Store’s other terrific labels followed with Tigerlily, TopShop, TopMan, Stolen Girlfriend’s Club and newcomers to the store Ruby & Liam (my favourite collection of the season - so elegant!) all displaying their exceptional collections to the delight of the crowd.

One of the best things about The Department Store event, aside from the truly covetable garments and lust-worthy accessories, was the electric atmosphere. They transformed a humid Auckland evening into a hothouse of sassy style, gratuitous glamour and contagious cheer, with everyone enjoying the generous free drinks, brilliant tunes and charming company.

As an added bonus, the goodie bag for the night contained a bunch of $30 off vouchers for each of the labels presented during the night, and I think it’s safe to say that everyone that received one will be seriously tempted to come back very soon and shop. With so many fantastic brands on offer, the only problem will be where to start!

Thank you to Showroom 22 and The Department Store for the kind invitation and exceptional hospitality.
