Blak Luxe was the second to last F/W 2011 show that Katherine and I went to last week. I must admit that prior to Fashion Week I'd never heard of the brand before, but it was a surprisingly cute collection – lots of cool black lace dresses and vibrant colours like scarlet red and rich forest green. Being so late in the game, the girls were in fine form backstage – Katherine said it was one of her favourites to shoot. However, that pesky faux fur popped up again (you'll see it below). Some fabric merchant must be laughing all the way to the bank on that one after this week. With such a natural abundance of sheep in New Zealand, why not use shearling instead!? Nevertheless, I reckon this label is one to watch in seasons to come.
