Phoenix Cosmetics NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

Phoenix Cosmetics once again took to the NZFW runway yesterday, with a fluoro-and-hairspray-charged show set to a soundtrack of classic ‘80s hits. Fashion shows that make cosmetics the focus are unusual – Phoenix is the only company to have ever done so at NZFW – but without a traditional format to reference the directive seems simply to be ‘go wild, and have...

Mix magic at NZFW 2012

article thumbnail

The music from New Zealand Fashion Week shows can be as good as the garments!  twenty seven names mixes are always standout, and FashioNZ heard a guest say that Ingrid Starnes show mix was the best of the week.  We've uploaded them to our SoundCloud, so you can love them too.

Stolen Girlfriends Club NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

I overhead a Stolen Girlfriends’ Club naysayer this week claiming that the label could send a garbage bag down the runway to applause. She might have had a point, but it wasn’t the criticism she intended. To say Marc Moore and Dan Gosling have got the Midas touch sounds too sparkly for a brand that’s built itself on edginess. But there’s no denying it: these guys...

Taylor NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

Designer Vicki Taylor apparently described showing at NZFW as an ode to her ‘vanity’. Taylor doesn’t wholesale, so the show wasn’t about attracting buyers. It was about having her own space, her own voice with a show of her garments the way she wanted them seen. The styling was slick and pared back, no unnecessary teetering heels or extras.

Charlie Brown NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

Further evidence that Fashion Weeks are moving their focus to local, rather than international buyers, Charlie Brown crossed the ditch last night to bring her AW 2013 collection, ‘Naughty and Nice’ to NZFW. Brown’s label is synonymous with ‘Australian’ style: sequins, colour, and glamour. In contrast, the New Zealand sartorial archetype is dark, moody, and...

Blak/Blak Luxe NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

Blak’s Autumn Winter 2013 collection titled ‘The Black Rose’ gives a good show! It was prim yet edgy, soft and hard, and light meets dark – incorporating lambskin leathers and lace, sheer layers, and large floral printed silks with secret skulls hidden amongst the blooms.

Salasai NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

I must admit I had wondered how the move to Perth might have affected Kirscha Whitcher – not in a fashion sense, more in a ‘big upheaval in life that is moving your family to another country’ sense. I’ve seen designers go through all manner of personal change and while for some you’d never know, others – well, you’ve heard of break up albums, right?...

Kagi NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

The press release for Kagi’s debut runway show was littered with words like “theatrical”, “magical”, and “outrageous”. Designer Kat Gee made it clear that she was going to break the mould for NZFW’s first ever solo jewellery show, and with a promise like that, even this self-confessed jewellery minimalist was eager to see what she had in...

Trelise Cooper NZFW 2012 Review

article thumbnail

Trelise Cooper has long been recognised as the queen of the dramatic Fashion Week show. Tonight, was truly no exception; the goodie bags were covered in tiny LEDs and Twink ed like stars on the delegates’ seats, the backdrop was at first a wall of golden balloons, and later a filigree of sparkles. Other designers must envy the ability of this woman to make her shows such a surprising...
