Last weekend Auckland welcomed Designers, Architects, Film makers and artist from around the world for it’s 10th edition of Semi-Permanent. Lucky for me a friend of mine and fellow graphic designer had a spare ticket for Saturday an was kind enough to give to me.
Last Sunday Auckland said goodbye to it’s 10 days of fashion in the city, and to celebrate it, on Saturday the 8th Queen Street closed two blocks to traffic and turned them into a 125 metres catwalk making it the longest catwalk ever made in the country.
On Thursday I got the fantastic opportunity to meet Karen Walker at the New Zealand Herald’s Viva Session. If you don’t know who Karen Walker is google new york fashion week and then come back. She is an amazing fashion designer whose clothes range from nz stores to Rihanna’s and Scarlet Johanson’s closet.
For 10 days, from the 28th of February to the 9th of March Auckland city will be celebrating “Fashion in the City” a series of Fashion related events, culminating on a giant catwalk on Queen Street. So this week will be all fashion related. To start off the event, last weekend, the Britomart people created a series of runway shows featuring leading designer like Juliette Hogan, Trelise Cooper, WORLD and Ted Baker.
