Who doesn't love a greatest hits collection?  Fresh and pretty local label Ruby are releasing a fifteen piece limited edition collection of some of their favourite pieces from 2008 - 2012, just in time for the start of NZ Fashion Week next month!  Designer Deanna Didovich has gone through and curated this gorgeous range, which I was thrilled to see includes some of my own personal favourite pieces from the past few years too (Who didn't love the adorable polka-dot Billy dress?)

Westpac Young Designer Competition 2013

Thursday, August 15, 2013



































There are few things more exciting in fashion than seeing the designs of brand new talent, even better is getting to help them achieve their dreams.  This week the Westpac Young Designer Awards launched their public voting for the 10 semi-finalists via Facebook, the winner receives a brilliant prize package to help kickstart their career, including $5000 in a Westpac business account, a one year internship in Zambesi's workroom and one year's business advice from Westpac.  How amazing would that be for a young designer?

Surf's Up With Stolen Girlfriends Club

Wednesday, August 14, 2013


Summer is fortunately getting closer by the day and last week I was fortunate enough to see Stolen Girlfriends Club's preview of their high summer collection 'Rogue Wave', due in stores from November.  It's been really interesting to see the development of this label over the past few years as it's matured and this new collection has to be my most favourite yet.

A Modern Marilyn

Wednesday, August 7, 2013


Marilyn Monroe has long been a muse for artists in every genre and interestingly enough she seems to be having a moment again in fashion right now.  Much like Kate Sylvester's new collection, this editorial is inspired by Marilyn's iconic beauty with looks that are chic and subtlely sexy.  Featuring the gorgeous Martina Dimitrova and lensed by Byron Mollinedo, this shoot is one of Fashion Gone Rogue's editorials and has definitely has put me in the mood for spring. 

Spring Has Sprung At Number One Shoes

Sunday, August 4, 2013

































I'm pretty sure that spring is the best season ever, the flowers start to bloom and everything feels fresh and clean again (that's what spring cleaning is for right?), what could be a better time for pretty new shoes?  Last week I was kindly invited to attend Number One Shoes new season launch for spring, which was a beautiful high tea presentation in a walk-in wardrobe style set up.  Now that was just as amazing as it sounds, walls and tables covered in shoes as far as the eye could see, with delectable treats on gorgeous vintage china making for perfectly timed afternoon snacks for the hungry fashion pack.
