We’re just eight days out, and to celebrate, here’s the official schedule.

Remember those Trelise Cooper designed Air New Zealand uniforms that caused such furore late last year? They’ve arrived. Not officially, but field tests have begun. I snapped the gentleman above (and below) on my flight down to Christchurch yesterday morning.

Derya Parlak working it in Juliette Hogan at the New Zealand Fashion Festival New Zealand Fashion Week‘s sister event – the consumer-targeted New Zealand Fashion Festival – took place for the first time on Tuesday this week. A press release was sent out about six hours prior to the show to say that tickets had sold out online, and that the inner city venue would be packed out with 1200 guests. I’m not sure how many eventually showed up, but the place was pretty damn full. And not just with paying customers. Among the crowd was a smattering of fashionClick to Continue!
