Stephen Marr and Hallertau will present The Marr Factory – a series of five fashion shows by six of the country’s best-known fashion labels – in an event series in Ponsonby at the end of the month.  Karen Walker, Zambesi, Helen Cherry and Workshop, Nom*D and Kate Sylvester will all show their spring/summer 2012/13 collections at The Golden Dawn in Ponsonby, with very limited tickets available to the public.

Starting on Sunday 26 August, Stephen Marr will execute one show per night until Thursday 30 August, each night featuring a different design house.  Capacity is limited to just 200 people per event, with 50 tickets on sale to the public (100 for Nom*D) through for $40 plus booking fee each.  M.A.C Cosmetics are the official make-up partner for the event.

Stephen Marr says of the event concept: “The shows provide us with a unique creative platform to marry our stylist teams to the labels who we’ve supported for so many years and who share our artistic values.  Hallertau is a great fit for us and The Golden Dawn culturally – it’s a bit rock ‘n’ roll and anti-corporate which we love.”

As one of New Zealand’s most respected hair brands, a Stephen Marr goal is to continually push creative fashion boundaries within the local community, in the most innovative ways.  The salon has a history of partnering with some of the best fashion labels in New Zealand including Cybele, Juliette Hogan, Hailwood, Jimmy D and Lonely Hearts as well as those on display in this year’s event. This is not the first outing form “The Marr Factory” – In 2005 and 2006, Stephen Marr hosted two events dubbed ‘The Marr Factory Presents’ which served to provide a creative platform for emerging designers such as Cybele, Otsu, Miss Crabb, Des Rusk and Lonely Hearts.
