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.
Hello again, this one will be a bit short since I’m writing this one in a hurry (sorry) but if the time helps me out I will be able to sneak in another post before the weekend. Ok… as you might imagine, the 10 days of fashion in the city continues and for this occasion the New Zealand Fashion Museum created a pop-up display in one of the unused silos at Silo Park.
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.
