Today marks 5 months since I launched my blog. Time has has gone by so quickly and I have enjoyed the last few months. If I didn’t start A Style Collector, I wouldn’t have met awesome bloggers and probably wouldn’t have the opportunity to go to NZ Fashion Week this year.
If you didn’t know, I’m doing the NZFW Backstage Blog with a bunch of other bloggers thanks to We Are Anthology. Yesterday was my first day going to it although NZFW officially kicked off on Monday night.
I’ve taken a lot of photos and I have so much to edit but I have a few snaps of the venue for you today. It’s a sneak of some of the things you can see during NZ fashion week.
I have a few photos below.
The designers featured in the showcase are: Andrea Moore, ConfiTEX, Eithne Curran, Gally Nine, Hailwood, Jasmin Sparrow, Julian Danger, Marama Jewellery, Michael John Jewellery, NZ Weddings Jewellery, Perky Shoes, TOMS, TOUS. Willa & Mae, X-Plain, 12 Glamour Eyewear.
I have watched a few shows and I will post them individually but what I’m doing at NZFW is interviewing the head hair and makeup stylists as well as the designers before the show. It has been a bit hectic as expected but it’s been good knowing what goes on behind the scenes.
Here’s a snap I took with Nicola (@nervingx) today while waiting for the Sovereign Presents NZFW Fashion Lunch that sadly we weren’t invited to. The lunch looked fancy schmancy but was strictly corporate.
One major thing about NZFW is the feeling of exclusivity. Although I love fashion, I don’t think I’m cut out for the fashion industry. I feel so out of place! Haha
Anyway, stay tuned for my other NZFW posts which are about the designers.
