It’s official, the designers have been announced! Among the usuals – Zambesi, Nom*D, Cybele and Trelise Cooper, we’ve got a few big names back after an extended hiatus – Karen Walker and World have both announced their return to the New Zealand catwalk. And Australian designer Kirrily Johnston is the first to come across the ditch for the event. IMG’s Transeasonal Fashion Week in Sydney has been cancelled and NZ Fashion Week has invited Australian’s to show here for the first time. I’ll be looking for excitement on the runway from the young guns and we’ve got a fair few of them we can expect bangs from: Stolen Girlfriends Club, Jaeha – whose show last year was heralded as the hottest newcomer, Twenty Seven Names, Lonely Hearts and Huffer. Notably absent is Kate Sylvester – I’ll try to get some info on why.
I’ll be doing daily updates of the best shows so keep checking back for all the action from Air New Zealand Fashion Week.
