There is not exactly a view inside Jimmy D and Vicky Chan's new K.Road store Children Of Vision but there is certainly foresight. The store, which opened last night in St Kevins Arcade on Auckland's Karangahape Rd, offers a "keenly edited selection of the finest avant-guardians from the world to New Zealand, many of whom have not been available in NZ before."

Indeed it does. For it’s A/W 09 debut season, Children of Vision is stocking: A’N’D (London), Andrea Crews (Paris), Bernhard Willhelm (Paris), C.Neeon (Berlin), Commence (Auckland), Gary Bigeni (Sydney), Hansel from Basel (Los Angeles). Jimmy D (Auckland), Kitsuné candles (Paris), Postweiler Hauber (Berlin), Romance Was Born (Sydney), Six Scents fragrance: Cosmic Wonder, Bernhard Wilhelm, Gareth Pugh (NYC), Trosman (Buenos Aires), TV (Melbourne).
Last night's opening was well attended by Auckland's fashion lovers and mercifully free of the C-List. Much wanted, much needed. We love it....
