Sony Black Eye At Air NZ Fashion Week 2008 - Day 3

Photos by Tash Hopkins and Rachael Churchward

Zambesi topped off another day in the Fashionable AK with a monster warehouse show last night that underlined exactly why Liz Findlay and her talented team are so revered, year after year. We'd like to make a special mention of one of our favourite models too, Josh, who whilst storming down the runway in a dark Zambesi Man ensemble reminded Black Creative Director Rachael Churchward of a 'beautiful serial killer you would like to take home'. Lonely Hearts also impressed yesterday but we are here for Sony Black Eye so let's get straight to the personal style that we loved:

The very stylish Hailwoods. Cathy (left) wears a Merino top and Hailwood boots. Ray wears a Barkers jacket, Des Rusk shirt, Lee Jeans and a Wanderkammer pendant. Adrian wears a Hailwood tee, Hussain Charlayan shirt, Paul Smith denim jacket, April 7 jeans, Comme Des Garcons shoes and a Wanderkammer ring. Shoes by Roberto Cavalli.

Gibb Seabrook has looked great two days in a row and wins yesterday's Sony Walkman. Gibb wears a Little Brother jacket and gloves, a vintage waistcoat, Satori tie, Levi's jeans, Hudson patent leather shoes and LA Eyeworks glasses.

Paper Magazine's Paul Johnson Calderon once again, features with this ensemble, and is fast becoming a favourite for best dressed of the week. We agreed yesterday to interview Paul and vice versa about our respective magazines - magazine love at Air NZ Fashion Week!

The impossibly talented Gareth Moody (left) was a founding designer at Tsubi before leaving and setting up his super hot Aussie label Chronicles Of Never now into it's third year. Gus (right) also works at Chronicles and the pair, who are over here to meet buyers and media, are dressed head to toe in current and recent seasons Chronicles Of Never.

This trio had been attending the Michael Patterson show. Will (left) wears a Pete Vs Toby jacket, 27 Names sailor top, Workshop jeans, Hudsons Of London shoes and Parsol sunnies. Geneva (centre) wears a Dejuba top, vintage leatherjacket, Pat Menzies sneakers and Mooks sunnies. Kieran (right) wears Cotton On long sleeve tee, Jeans by Michael Patterson and shoes by Puma

Showroom 22 PR maestro Murray Bevan with Ollie The Fashion Wonder Dog who apears for the second time here on BlackLOG. Ollie wears Doggy & Gabanna fleece jacket, Ruffer necklace and Barkers belt thingy. Shiny coat, model's own.

Aussie model Adele wears a Ksubi shirt, Minty Meets Munt cardigan, Rest In Peace tights and Adidas boxing boots.

Ryland Wood wears Michael Patterson shirt and waistcoat, Monte castella shirt and glasses bought in a market in Bali.

Cade John Norton wears a Tarocash shirt, a vintage blazer which looks suitably nautical for the location, and black Lee jeans.

Models Red and Lauren have been walking all week at ANZFW so it wasn't surprising to catch them relaxing in the comfy bar area. Lauren who will appear in our Dark Horses shoot in the forthcoming issue of Black Magazine wears a vintage blazer and bag, Sass & Bide body suit, Lonely Hearts pants, the Stolen Girlfriends Club shoes she wore in their show the previous night and vintage Wayfarers. Red wears a Hallensteins tee, Levi's belt, Lee jeans and some loafers he bought for $10.

Georgia Fowler wears a Witchery leather jacket, Topshop top and skirt and scarf from a market in Europe.

It wasn't so much Billy's outfit (above) that we loved, it was his attitude...

Model Tia Woods (below) who also appears in our "Dark Horses" shoot in the upcoming issue of Black Magazine relaxes on the wharf in a Lippy shirt, Lee jeans, Max hat and sandals by Jessica Simpson.
