And finally, here are some pictures from the Sailor Spy collection at Cycle Runway, as part of the University of Canterbury's Eco Week.
As a designer, you spend weeks accumulating ideas, a theme, drawing, sourcing fabrics and materials, cutting, sewing, fitting and ammending and then, in a matter of minutes, the whole thing's over in a flash. It felt very strange to have spent weeks helping Nin bring the collection together for this one night, and by the time we had all our models dressed and styled, the audience was applauding and that was that. Finito. It was a hugely rewarding experience and a very valuable insight behind the scenes of a fashion label.
And here's our star model, the lovely Alison, who will be the face of our photoshoot next month, which Nin has asked me to style for so she can concentrate on directing the photographer. Exciting times!
Here are some of my favourite pieces from the other designers:
|We Have Always Lived in the Castle|
|Belle and Beau|
|A Date with Elvis|
