NZFW Day 3: Kathryn Wilson, Stolen Girlfriends Club…

Kicking off day three of New Zealand Fashion Week was an exciting mix of fresh talent in the NZFW Grad and New Gen shows. Up and coming designers from both the North and South Island showcased their collections.

Stand-out trends we have been seeing are bold clashing colours, strong pink and orange tones, especially in the Havilah collection. Layers and tunic-styled dresses over cropped pants are also a major look coming through emerging designers. We couldn’t help but love the rose tinted glasses styled with this collection. A trend we think is here to stay this summer!

Olli showed us  structured frills, paired with bermuda shorts and matrix glasses. The lilac and minty tones of this collection we can already tell are going to be everywhere over the warmer months.

Pilgrim styled bell-sleeves and velvet suiting were stand outs in Caitlin Crisp’s graduate show. The attention to detail and fabrics were impressive. There is definitely a long wish list after seeing this incredible homage to 70’s glam.

After the show, the designer hosted her a special party to tribute the people and mentors that have helped the footwear brand’s major success over the past 15 years.

Finishing off our evening, we headed to an off-site location for the always highly anticipated Stolen Girlfriends Club.

Atmosphere is always something you can guarantee with the entire venue buzzing, we headed backstage to have a look at the key make-up look for the show.

The inspiration behind the beauty look was 70’s New York Punk scene, but goes to studio 54 later on in the evening. She’s part DIY punk, part retro glamour. With disheveled wet-look top knots finishing off the model’s looks.

New Sincerity Deep Irony showcased a mix of 70’s glam and 80’s power moves in an eclectic mix denim, leather and stiletto boots.

The major suiting moments accentuated with micro skirts and micro cross body bags showed that no one does grunge-glam like Stolen.
