Last night I had the privilege of obtaining tickets for the Dunedin ID fashion show from my Aunty and Uncle. With one hour to spare, my sister Belinda and I threw on our best Fashion week outfits and I painted on my darkest lipstick. Then we eagerly joined the thousands of fashionistas filling the Dunedin Railway station to watch the fashion extravaganza unfold.
At fashion shows I liked to be wowed. For a show to make an everlasting impression on me I need to feel shivers down my spine in excitement. I want my heart to race and my head to fill with ideas and possibilities. This happens when the perfect model, music and clothing combine. I took photos of when this occurred.
As always I enjoyed Nom D, their consistent moody plaid and draped upside down garments forever tickle me in ways i can’t explain and have me aching for more.
WORLD was visually stunning, This incandescent yellow piece alone was enough for me to throw down my (average) goodie bag and proclaim it my favourite garment of the night. Not exactly daytime wearable but if it WORLD decided to make a some what quieter everyday version I would be sure to snap it up. Even a subtle yellow winged cape would be FABULOUS.
Company of Strangers was another one of my favourite designers last night. They had a gorgeous collection of deliciously ready to wear straight off the runway outfits and their colour palate of mustard and plum where truly inspired. As you can already tell I was drooling over the big.black.hat. By the way, I haven’t mentioned what I wore yet. Can you guess??
In true Eve fashion I wore my favourite hat in the world by Dada, my favourite coat in the world, my Martin Margiela trench and my favourite lippy in the world, Cyber by Mac. Accompanying this was black lace up boots, a black tunic and a paisley tie tied in a bow. Here are a few more pictures from the night!
This is Tannia Lee my Fashion Stylist friend and her cousin looking gorgeous in vintage, as always.
The whole night was breathtakingly mesmerizing. I will definitely be back next year..wherever I am.
