I can’t believe it’s already been a week since the close of NZFW 2016!
It’s been a whirlwind few months and I’ve been a bit M.I.A from the blog while I spent time travelling with hubs and enjoying much overdue laughs, and adventures. With only a fortnight between landing home and jumping back on a flight to NZ there’s barely been time to take a breath, but there’s still been plenty of excitement & anticipation.
I was lucky enough to be invited to NZFW as International Media, which meant VIP privileges including Mercedes Benz Chauffeurs, an official NZFW Chaperone, and most importantly – front row seats. I can assure you it was a week not to be forgotten!
There will be a follow-up post on my adventures beyond Auckland, but for now I just want to talk about FASHION; the trends, the labels & my fav shows from NZFW16.
There’s more where that came from too with other notable mentions including Huffer for effortless street-style cool, and Trelise Cooper + Cooper + Coop for a blast of colour, femininity & exquisite embellishments. I must also mention Carena West swimwear, which was not only beautiful but also had a wonderful & diverse runway of women – amen to that.
Key trends from the week included muted/earthy palettes with black & greys, whites, dusty pinks, burnt oranges, and rich burgundy & blue hues. There was also loads of texture with a mixture of rich knits, flowing silks, velvets & leather. NZFW 2016 offered loads of ultra-cool street wear and edgy sports-luxe styling (with the exception of Rochelle, Harman Grubisa & Trelise Cooper who brought feminine style and lots of wow-factor).
Finally, the week wouldn’t have been the same without the squad @leatherandlattes @whiteandcapsule and our official fashion week chaperone @archiesjournal.
Huge thanks to NZFW for having us. Pop on over to my Facebook page too, where I’ll be posting videos and more snaps from the week!
Until next year! xx
