My favourite looks from yesterday’s Manning Cartell show were the light cream and white ones. There’s something really fresh about an all white outfit. I don’t really ever do all white in real life because I live in fear of stains, but boy do they look chic. Rachel Rutt’s look above, was my absolute favourite from the show. The linen semi-sheer coat and shorts, the top with its geometric sheer patterning – it looked amazing. See some of my other favourites below:

This is a slight cop out, but I’m so far behind that I am combining my favourite photos from some other shows on Day 1 and posting them in one post. No words because I’m dead tired, but I will say that the light installation above the catwalk at Bec & Bridge was pretty incredible, and high fives to Surface Too Deep who showed their collection as part of a group swimwear show. Happy viewing:
This is the first time I’ve come to MBFWA and felt okay on Day 1. I’m usually a mess – tired, behind, hungry, stressed out, uncomfortable. This year I have adopted a completely different approach to past years and decided to limit the amount of shows I attend to fit in meetings and blogging time and just general ‘Sydney’ time. I’ve also gone and dressed down – I’m talking sneakers, jeans, tshirt type thing, and the combination of the less shows and ultimate comfort level outfits has been an absolute treat. Those things as well as the fact that I have hired a bigger lens from my mates at Kingsize means everything is running really smoothly. I’m feeling good guys, I’m feeling good!
My first show today was Camilla and Marc which I was pretty excited about because it was the first show of fashion week and a banger – both excellent things. (I also did a lot of shooting outside the show which I’ll post separately to this.) The models they had in the show were all top notch – we’re talking Julia Nobis, Nicole Pollard, Ruby-Jean Wilson, Rachel Rutt – all those really big Australian girls, and three of New Zealand’s greats: Clyne’s Ella V and Red Eleven’s Laura and Holly-Rose. Here’s some of my favourites from the show:
Kathryn Wilson put on a pretty great show on Thursday night in Wellington at a BMW showroom a bit out of the city. She even sent some of us cars and drivers to bring us there. VIP man! VIP! It was the best. She presented A/W 2013 (current season) so if there are any pairs you like from the pictures, you can get them in store now or at least very, very soon. As well as the catwalk show (which, as you can see from the pictures, featured a lot of leg), Kathryn did a little speech about how she got to where she is. She’s a great public speaker. I can get bored easily and I am a nervous as hell public speaker – I mean, I can barely talk to people one on one – so when someone can stand up and speak confidently and engage me, I’m very impressed.
In kind of related news, there was a girl in the front row opposite me who I thought could possibly be a model. If I wasn’t sitting across a catwalk with a show in progress at a BMW showroom in Wellington city, I would’ve tried to scout her. Instead I just took a creepy stalker photo. Girl in the picture, if that is you, I suggest you give a modelling agency a call.
I was late on Thursday. And not even fashionably late, just plain late. I stayed at the RUBY ‘My Deer Fox’ launch for a little too long, realised I didn’t have my camera, missioned it to my hotel room and by the time I got to Odlin’s Plaza (the official venue of Wellington Fashion Week) at 7:09pm, I was already too late. The audience were seated and the models were walking. I feel like that’s record timing for a fashion show scheduled to start at 7:00pm. So prompt! Anyway, I sort of just snuck my way into the back by the photographers pit and watched a bit from there before realising this was a long show and I was never going to be able to get a good photo for the blog.
Luckily enough, Paul Blomfield was standing next to me, he kindly offered to seat me front row by taking me around the back of the pit and sneaking me in, but I figured it better to just go backstage and see some of the action from there. The designers as part of the epic 45 minute long group show were: Trelise Cooper, Moochi, twoWORLDS, STORM, Mondegreen, Sabatini at Goodness, and Taylor. Here’s some of what I saw:
Hey, so I made some collages to sum up the WORLD Winter 2013 Collection show, which was last night here in Wellington. As per usual, the makeup and hair was next level – there were extremely hair-spray-slick waves and glitter to the max, bobby pins for days and bejewelled lips. The time taken to create those looks must’ve been insane but it’s all for the show baby, it’s all for the love of fashun!:
