Amber Whitecliffe: Mrs Pinto Preview Event

Monday, October 27, 2014



One of the best things about working in fashion the past few years has been all the wonderful people I've gotten to meet and in turn a number of them have become friends.  Of course there is nothing more exciting than watching your friends follow their dreams so I was thrilled for the lovely Amber Pinto, who showed her label Amber Whitecliffe for the first time at NZFW this year.  She opened the first New Generation show with her summer 2014 collection 'Mrs Pinto' which I wrote about at the time as it was a gorgeous collection as you can see by these images.

There are few things more elegant than beautiful millinery, it has the power to elevate an outfit from everyday to extraordinary.  But like many other artisans, milliners are becoming a rare breed, which is why it's always a delight to see the work of local labels like Natalie Chan, who are continuing on the old traditions and are creating headwear that maintains impeccable craftsmanship while embracing modern ideas as well.

Karen Walker: Ten Years Of Making Faces

Wednesday, October 15, 2014









Karen Walker threw the fashion party of the year on Friday night at The Sapphire Room to celebrate the tenth birthday of her eyewear label.  It was such a pleasure to attend an amazing night with an abundance of confetti, champagne and cake (by The Caker), what could be a better combination for a birthday party? The night also featured two photo set-ups one re-creating KW's 'Dictator' campaign shoot from 2006, the other recreating her confetti strewn 'Celebration' shoot from her latest range (below) which was a lot of fun and super popular.

Huffer's Classic Summer

Sunday, October 12, 2014







1997 is a year that I remember fondly, it was my last year at high school, and yes, I know I'm giving away my age here when I say that but it's relevant to my own fashion story.  My style had changed from the Nirvana inspired grunge of the early nineties to a more feminine but still quite simple look. I was embracing being a girl but in the minimalist way that reigned in the second half of that decade. Huffer were founded in 1997 and for this summer have returned to their birth year and created a collection that perfectly captures that time but still feels modern and definitely reminds me of styles I wore back then.

Paolo Sebastian's Couture Mermaids

Saturday, October 4, 2014


I've written about amazing Australian couturier, Paolo Sebastian, a couple of times now because his creations are really what my fashion dreams are made of.  Handcrafted in the most delicate tulles, silks and chiffons with some of the most beautiful beading I've ever seen, these are gowns that mix high glamour with modern femininity for a fairytale ending.  His latest collection for spring/summer 2014/15 is truly breathtaking and really does remind me of mermaid gowns is the best possible way.
