The Marr Factory 2013: Sunday - Karen Walker

Photo: Oliver Rose

The rain stayed away for the opening night of The Marr Factory, ensuring that Karen Walker's 'New Rose' was not dampened, in spirit or body. If anything, spirits were running high as New Zealand's superstar model du jour Ashleigh Good set off down the runway at The Golden Dawn flanked by an adoring crowd of customers, media and fashionistas. No less than 38 models wound their way through the crowd resplendent in outfits from the New Rose collection, ubiquitous Karen Walker Eyewear, Karen Walker Jewellery and of course, the super colab of Karen Walker x Beau Coops to pound the pavement, as it were. Great make-up by the Amber D-led M.A.C Cosmetics team and hair by Sky Cripps-Jackson and the Stephen Marr team, and of course fab Courvoisier cocktails and the odd Hallertau number 2 added much to the party atmosphere. After the show models made their way up to the labyrinth of rooms above The Golden Dawn to be snapped by Oliver Rose, Black photographer Sam Lee and numerous others. Sam's selection will be added here later tonight, in the meantime, here is a selection of images from last night by Oliver Rose...
