NZFW 2012: Trelise Cooper

Thursday, September 13, 2012


There was magic in the air when Trelise Cooper took to the NZFW runway for an illuminating presentation, which was the showstopper of the week.  Known for her beautiful shows with theatrical flair, the anticipation was palpable pre-show and Trelise definitely delivered. 


First up in the two part show, Trelise's Cooper collection (which is her diffusion label) took to the runway under an arch of gold balloons.  Lots of layering, mixtures of stripes, plaids and florals made up a range of really wearable pieces styled in an eclectic way.  The look was a bit tribal with deconstructed edges and a colour palette that ran from earthy tones to acid brights.  Standout was the graphic floral print blazer and pants - stunning!

The Trelise Cooper mainline collection was up next, after the balloons disappeared to reveal a beautiful twinkling archway designed to be reminiscent of Brighton Palace Pier in the evening.  The looks that appeared were opulent and full of grandeur with incredible styling.  From the striking Jeffrey Campbell Night Walker shoes to the exquisite makeup by MAC and hair and veils by Bettjemans, all the details added to the glamourous feel of the collection.

With beautiful brocades, delicate silks and lots of embellishments, the garments themselves were very feminine and a modern take on Edwardian looks, with every piece oh so covetable.  As the collection came to a close the lights dimmed and three models with illuminated LED skirts came down the runway to the loud applause from the assembled fashion crowd.  Trelise's version of Belle Epoque glamour was a hit and will be a show remembered for years to come and I can't wait to get my hands on those amazing printed dresses!
