The Marr Factory is back for 2014!

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Super exciting news today with the announcement that the brilliant fashion show series, The Marr Factory, is returning again for 2014 to Ponsonby's The Golden Dawn.  Expanding to six nights this year, from August 17 - 23, all of last years labels are returning including: Karen Walker, Kate Sylvester, Zambesi, Nom*D, Helen Cherry and Workshop, as well as the fabulous creative teams from Stephen Marr and MAC.  The labels will be showing their in-season Spring/Summer 2014 collections which will be available in stores at the time too, after all there's nothing better than seeing a great look on the runway and being able to shop it straight away.

This year sees the inspired addition of a new show to wrap up the week which supports young designers and will feature the likes of Georgia Alice, Penny Sage, Eugenie, Glen Prentice and Harman Grubisa presenting their own collections.  Whilst the earlier events will be ticketed and available for sale from today, the Saturday show will be completely open to the public with space available on a first come, first served basis.

Viva are naming rights sponsor this year and will be launching their new online shopping portal ShopViva to coincide with The Marr Factory which is also interesting news.  The easier it is to shop new looks and local designers the better in my opinion.  You can register for ShopViva in advance here.

The event is officially billed as:

Shop Viva presents The Marr Factory
In association with Bombay Sapphire
Proudly supported by Hallertau, Quartz Reef Wines and All Good Organics.

Tickets for The Marr Factory are just $45 and are on sale now at iTicket here.  Trust me you will want to be quick as these shows always sell out fast!
