Blog: Maddy Budd at NZFW - Day Three

Fri-29-Aug-14 11:11

Today was the last proper day of fashion week. Tomorrow there is only one show called Miromoda featuring twelve indigenous designers. It has been a busy last few days with plenty of drama as usual. I’ve had a great time being a part of the George family.

Fashion weekend kicks off tomorrow, this is when the public can come and enjoy the shows and see some in-season collections.

The highlight of the week had to be the jumper James Lowe made specifically for fashion week that said “Elite, private, members-only club” poking fun at all of the new exclusive clubs popping up at the moment, he even made it into the paper! As for the shows the highlights for me were definitely Juliette Hogan and Kate Sylvester, which was the last show of day three.

Lowlight was probably the lack of decent food onsite at the Viaduct Events Centre and today when the Red Bull girls weren’t there giving out free Red Bull I had to buy one for $5.

I had very little sleep the night before so day 3 was a bit of a struggle. Luckily the first show had cute male models handing out free flat whites and croissants as we were being seated. I was the only one actually eating in the front row but I was too tired to care. Celine Rita kicked the day off with a bright, fun show. The Parisian inspired collection featured plenty of prints patterns and bold colours.

The New Generation show is always interesting. This time we had Wilson Trollope, Inhale Apparel, Nomsa Mabuto and ITZME. All had an exciting fresh take on things.

Coop was a great show. I loved the muti-coloured sneakers with the rainbow marble sole. My friend Katherine hated them but I loved that they were a bit over the top. They used a great dusty colour palette throughout the collection and I could see myself wearing a lot of it!

Hailwood had designs ranging from streetwear right through to a blue velvet dress. I loved some of the simple looks with the grey knits paired with skirts and jeans. The big blanket poncho looked like something I’d love wearing too.

Finally the highlight of the day Kate Sylvester. I loved it all, the striped pajamas, the heels with socks, the skinny scarves, the long skirts, the low ponytails and even the tiny splashes of yellow and red. Kate hasn’t had a show at NZFW for a while and but boy am I happy she came back! Such a great show.
