Finale at Good Magazine NZ Fashion Weekend 2018 show. Image by Lyle Adams.
Before we knew it the last day of New Zealand Fashion Week had arrived and we headed down to catch the last few shows. Good Magazine put together a stellar selection of NZ’s latest leading ethical designer labels including: Tonic & Cloth, WE-AR, Ovna Ovich, Mane Project, Papinelle, ReCreate, Aurai Swimwear and Grumpysuns. What I loved the most about the show was that comfort wasn’t compromised at all with any of the garments and everything shown was ethically and sustainably produced. If you care about who’s made your clothing, then these are local brands to watch out for. From 90’s style streetwear to comfy yoga clothing and easy summer dresses, this show had a fantastic range of garments to not only keep us looking good, but keep the earth looking good too.
The Resene Designer Runway was an upbeat, stunner of a show! It showcased epic highlights from each brand that featured during NZ Fashion Week 2018. I loved being able to see a little bit of everything and even added a few more garments to my never-ending ‘need’ list. This event is the perfect wrap up to the fashion fuelled week. My tip – I highly recommend getting yourself along to this show if you haven’t been able to make it to any week day events.
The last show of NZ Fashion Week 2018 went off with a bang! The Mercy Hospice Show nearly had me in tears a couple of times due to all the emotional feels and cuteness overload. This was the first time that a charity shop has taken over the NZ Fashion Week runway and the crowd loved every minute of it. The runway was full of people – nurses, doctors, a few celebrities and people associated with Mercy Hospice. Everyone was smiling, and the models looked full of confidence skipping down the runway in their charity shop threads. What a fun way to end this epic, jam-packed weekend!
