I don't think any of you will be surprised that I was very enthusiastic for this week's ball dress story and what started as six dresses quickly became eight, then ten, then twelve. There are so many gorgeous dresses available that I probably could have kept going but twelve is a good range and features lots of sublime options. I hope you enjoy browsing them as much as I enjoyed...

Trelise Cooper has adapted her brand many times in the years she's been in business and her latest addition is Little Trelise, which marks her return to the childrenswear market after closing the previous kids label she had several years back. It's a clever move and will likely gain huge popularity especially as the new range is fashion forward and has unisex pieces. The sweet...

I'm excited to have our Shop the Look section back up and running in time for sale season which is on at the moment. As I've mentioned before we are redeveloping FashioNZ at the moment and an all new site will be revealed in a few months time which I'm looking forward to sharing with you. Unfortunately part of that process means that things haven't always been as...

It feels like another lifetime ago that I worked in film and television but I'm always excited when my previous profession and my current one cross paths. Recently, I interviewed lovely actresses Antonia Prebble and Esther Stephens, as well as talented costume designer Jaindra Watson from the hit TV3 show Westside. Season two is set entirely in 1981 which was a different look to the...

Every wardrobe needs the perfect essential pieces that help form the basis of everyday outfits and always look stylish. On that note Moochi have recently released a range of essential garments called Key Pieces that includes their favourite and most popular pieces over the seasons. I love the idea of re-releasing favourite pieces as there is nothing worse than ruining or losing your...

I've been a fan of Trilogy's beautiful skincare products for years and was delighted to hear that lovely local singer/songwriter Anna Coddington (who I'm also a big fan of) was recently appointed as the face of their new campaign. Our resident beauty writer Sophie chatted to Anna about the new collaboration and what her beauty essentials are, which is always good to know when...

If there is one special item that pretty much every woman has in her wardrobe I would hazard a guess that it's an LBD. Aside from the fact that New Zealanders wear a lot of black anyway, the LBD is a go-to for all kinds of events and occasions, it's even become acceptable to wear black to weddings which never used to be the case. In pursuit of a new LBD of my own, I've been...

Kelly Coe has built a huge and loyal following for her popular Augustine and Charlo labels and last week she introduced her latest range, Stella Royal by Augustine, which is aimed at the plus-size market. In keeping with Coe's colourful style the new label is fun, feminine and full of florals for this season. I'm really pleased to see another label offering a greater range of...

Every so often I come across a fashion collection that really captures my imagination and recently I found myself drawn to Tanya Carlson's gorgeous Almost Famous inspired range. Carlson has created a clever collection which references it's 1970s connection while still being modern and relevant to today's woman. She has complemented the collection with some of the most...

Dresses are my favourite thing to wear to work simply because they're easier than trying to match separates and all you really have to think about is shoes and jewellery. This week I've found six great dresses that are perfect for this changeable weather which is definitely cooling but not quite freezing yet. With a range of dresses from the likes of Augustine, Helen Cherry, Isaac...

While there are many things I love about the fashion industry and the creativity that comes out of it, unfortunately it also has a dark side, and that came to light prominently with the Rana Plaza disaster on April 24th 2013. 1133 people were killed when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh and 2500 people were injured, with many left as amputees.
