Auckland's first ever Fashion Festival (the NZ Fashion Week organisers' one, not that other one) has just been officially announced, and I've got the details. It'll be a one day/night in-season (Autumn/Winter) show on Tuesday 16 March. 16 designers, including Adrian Hailwood, Cybele, Workshop, Huffer, Juliette Hogan, Kate Sylvester, Stolen Girlfriends Club, Trelise Cooper and Zambesi will show 10 looks each. Tickets are $45, and are limited to 700 guests. The event will also include the New Zealand Garage Sale, and live music mixed by George FM DJs. Being an in-season show, everything you see on the catwalk will be available for sale in stores at the time. The whole thing follows the newest trend in fashion - accessibility. Everyone's doing it; Burberry, Prada, Z Zegna and Dior Homme all live streamed their shows for the public to see at the menswear Fashion Weeks last month, and it's just the beginning. You can buy your Fashion Festival ticket online now from iTicket. And, yes, that's the logo above. Will you go?
I LIKE YOU!
