New Zealand Fashion Week 2019 is just a week away now and and whether you’re visiting the trade shows during the week or coming to Fashion Weekend for some fashionable fun with your girlfriends, we’ve got some great outfit inspiration from the designers themselves. NZFW is all about having fun with fashion and nothing makes you feel more confident than adding something new to your outfit but we don’t want you to blow your budget either.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Laybuy which is a fantastic service that lets you receive your purchase immediately and spread the total cost over 6 weekly automatic payments. Those payments are interest free too which makes it even better.

What to wear to NZFW 2019

Armania Skirt Black, $179 (or 6 payments from $29.83) and Roman Blouse, $169 (or 6 payments from $28.17) from Augustine.

Augustine
“You need to wear something different and special to fashion week, don’t dress how you would if you are just going out for dinner. You can never be too unique, too dressed up or too over styled. I would add a fedora hat to this outfit and wear it with leopard boots, then massive over-sized earrings and hair down and curled. The blouse is very on trend with all the ruffles and this caramel colouring is gorgeous. The skirt brings the sparkle which you can never have enough of at fashion week”. – designer and co-founder Kelly Coe.

“Our Savannah dress is the ultimate day outfit for that cool but edgy NZFW vibe. Crisp cotton holds a fun structured shape while new season hot pink makes a strong statement. Layer it up with a tan coat and sneakers for effortless sartorial perfection.” – designer and founder Biddie Cooksley.

“For NZFW this year we will definitely be wearing our suiting. Made from the most beautiful Japanese stretch wool our Satoshi Jacket and Tokyo Trousers are super comfortable and perfect for busy days full of action. This combo is so easy to take from day to night worn with sneakers and a tee, or dressed up with heels and a shirt.” – designer and founder Jojo Ross.

Rochelle heel in Dolly Pink, $299 (or 6 payments from $49.83) from Kathryn Wilson.

Kathryn Wilson
“I would say the ‘Rochelle heel’ in Dolly Pink is the perfect shoe for NZFW. It has a great wearable height of 7.5cm, it’s a seasonal accent colour which looks feminine and on-trend but the heel is low enough to run if you’re late to the shows and a closed toe for Auckland weather in August which is famously raining and wet!” – designer and founder Kathryn Wilson.

What to wear to NZFW 2019

The Visit dress, $199.90 (or 6 payments from $33.31) from Federation.

Federation
“Whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist, the Visit dress is the perfect base for any Fashion Week outfit; scale back colour to play with prints, shape and accessories. Ditch the stilettos this season, and opt for a super-chic street sneaker instead. Play it up or pare it down, either way: you’ll be best dressed.” – designer and co-founder Jenny Joblin.

Study Coral Neckerchief, $99 (or 6 payments from $16.50) from GOOD&CO.

“I think our fun new neckerchief scarves would be a great for NZFW as they are such a bright and easy accessory for the new season. Small, colourful, and easily thrown on at any minute. They don’t need much styling to be stylish and can be worn so many different ways (neck, wrist, bag strap, in your hair). They add fun pops of colour when you need it the most!” designer and founder Lillie Toogood.
