My Week In Fashion - 3rd June

Outfit by Stolen Girlfriends Club on the runway on Wednesday

Winter has well and truly arrived in New Zealand, which makes the current Spring/Summer showings happening make me wish winter would hurry up and be over already, even though the new S/S stock starts arriving already next month.  This past week has been another busy one with Stolen Girlfriends Club's 'Nasty Goreng' show and a visit to Ciel PR to see their new collections on my schedule.  My cool new Glassons varsity sweater turned up via courier as well too, I had such a great time making it at the instore event the week before, more about that later.  
Ciel PR was my first appointment of the week with the lovely Aych McArdle and I popping to have a look at the huge range of labels in the showroom.  We were lucky enough to get to chat to designer Teresa Hodges from Blak about her success in London, as her label is now available in TopShop's amazing Oxford Street store, which is a huge coup for a kiwi label.  We got to have a look at her Blak Love range for Spring/Summer which is fresh, pretty and really wearable, see a shot below of one of my favourite pieces.

Also in the showroom was Sarah-Jane Abraham of Surface Too Deep, whom it was lovely to see again as Aych and I got to chat to her about her label's success at MBFWA and putting that collection into production.  There were so many labels to look at we were in there for over two hours looking at everything, my favourite ranges were those by Lucy McIntosh, Vaughan Geeson, Riddle Me This, Blak, Chaos & Harmony and Pardon My French, expect to hear more about all of those labels over the next few months.

On Wednesday night Stolen Girlfriends Club presented their 'Nasty Goreng' collection in their own inimitable way, gathering a huge group of fashion media and followers into an industrial warehouse space before sending sexily dressed models down the runway and finally their new customised Mini Paceman to the delight of the crowd. 

As expected from the SGC team, the collection was young, fun and tongue-in-chic, I loved the lingerie inspired looks and hot neoprene party dresses.  Their new signature print 'Death Moth' in black, lilac and mint green which was also emblazoned on their car was another highlight for me and I loved the use of delicate lace mixed in with edgier textures.  The collection was a definite hit and I could see some pieces that I'm sure will be hot-sellers come summer.

The Friday before I attended Glassons super fun Glassons Varsity pop-up store event where a group of fashion media and stylists got to have a go at customising their own varsity sweaters and tshirts.  Such a great idea, as who doesn't love customising their own clothes etc?  I went for a traditional-ish look on the front of mine with a cute heart detail on the back of the neck as you can see below, what do you think? 

As I didn't have a chance to wait around for it to be finished at the event, the team at Glassons kindly sent it out to me this past week and I've had it on for most of the weekend.  If you're keen on making your own customised sweater or tshirt the Glassons varsity pop-up shop is currently in Glassons Newmarket in Auckland but it will be travelling, so keep an eye on Glassons Facebook here to see where it pops up next.
