NZ Fashion Week Day One: Twenty Seven Names Exhibition…

After the Salasai show we made a quick dash to the Twenty Seven Names Exhibition. Where we were treated to VnC cocktails and delicious treats from The Caker, aside from the food and beverages there were blow up photographs of what is to come next season we see lots of colour and various patterns! Check out our pic’s below…! 

These two really enjoyed The Caker treats! 

NZ Fashion Week Day One: Salasai…

As we arrive at the beautiful venue: St Matthews, the church bells ring to welcome us through the doors, We are then greeted by the lovely ladies from Showroom22. The aesthetic of the church is dim with cast iron chandeliers hanging from the high arch stone roof. The surroundings are precisely suited to the name of the collection: Enchanted Territory. We quickly sneak back stage to take some snaps of the models before the show, think long lashes and Cleopatra eyeliner and chiseled cheekbones. Stephen Marr topped off the look with a slick middle part and perfectly placed pearls along the part line. We were wooed by the incredible mystical surroundings and the stunning hair and make up. As the show kicks off the once dim room suddenly becomes alight.
Salasai: The Enchanted Territory
 The angelic runway compliments what we see: soft floaty whites, crisp tartan, box pleats, leather shorts, capes and loosely tailored hessian blazers. Incorporated into this blend of textures there is a subtle presence of lace. The Superette team were in awe by Kirsha’s unforgettable show, with the simple combination of colours mixed with the beautiful silks and lace gave us reason to look forward to next winter… the arrival of this Salasai season.

We all had a crush on these little front row cuties

Colin was keen to strike a pose for us! 

Guess who we spotted sitting just a couple of seats down from us! Marc of Stolen Girlfriends Club and the lovely Natalie, who you will remember from recent guest blog appearances. 

With today marking the last day of winter we are welcoming spring and with the recent drop of Kirsha’s summer Salasai collection “A Strange Love Project” we couldn’t be more prepared!
