As a creative project, I handed out a few disposable cameras to some interesting and prominent faces around New Zealand Fashion Week. Their instructions were pretty simple: “Take photos of whatever you want before/during Fashion Week. Nothing too offensive please.” What follows are some of the results:
Following on from my last one of these posts, we have Dayne Johnston – Zambesi’s super lovely and super talented menswear designer. Dayne decided to use his disposable camera backstage at his show (see photos below). Here’s what he had to say for himself:
- What were your Highs of fashion week?: Michael Whittaker – I enjoy talking style and menswear with him; Collaborating and casting models with our casting director and producer of our show, Marissa Findlay; Collaborating with Elisabeth Findlay and working with her on the styling of the show; and working with Briar Neville, she has taken up a new role at Zambesi which encompasses sales and press, she also assisted with the styling of the show.
- What were your Low(e)s of fashion week?: Being tired and fatigued!
- Describe the men’s collection in two sentences or less: Sports couture. A fusion of de constructed sportswear meets tailoring.
PS: On a related note, Zambesi is now available for purchase online - check out their store here.
