Sony Black Eye At Air NZ Fashion Week 2008 - Day 4
Well. Huffer topped off a fine fashion week in style, wharfside at the Hilton Hotel. The rain held off, in fact an earlier shower created a perfectly glistening runway. A bunch of fishermen - including the ubiquitously fashionable Ali Williams, a long time Huffer cohort - cast their rods as the bumper crowd watched on. Styled by Black Senior Fashion Editor Atip W, the Huffer show didn't dissapoint and for the second year in a row topped the week off nicely. Karen Walker also didn't fail to impress with her classy (as always) range at Stephen Marr in Newmarket. A special mention of the Trelise Cooper Kids show earlier in the day too - just so cute! We secretly hoped to see the two kids from the Hyundai ad come flying in on a rope. Great wee show though and perhaps fittingly we have chosen a youngster, Page Grant-Huggett (above) to win our last Sony E-Series Walkman. All in all a good end to the week. Congratulations to all of the designers, crew and people behind the scenes. We will post a 'best of' blog in the next few days. In the meantime here is Sony Black Eye for the final day:
A serious contender for best-dressed of the week was the one and only Bryanboy. Here he is in Prada jacket, shirt by J.R, Topshop jeans, Dior Homme shoes, Charles Jourdan bag, a fabulous necklace by Ciara Serumgard and sunnies by the excellently-named Folded & Hung.
We thought these two looked really good together. Alex wears a vintage vest, shirt, shoes, satchel and Supre jeans. Natasha wears...vintage everything. Vintage couple then...
Jenny from Acrimony in San Fransisco looked great all week. Here she is in a YMC shirt, Iro scarf, pants by K.Kia in Los Angeles, Chanel shoes, a Prada bag and super-cool ring from Bijules in New York.
For a short period of time ANZFW was awash with rather stylishly dressed kids and Page Grant-Huggett stood out to us among many. Page wears a Trelise Cooper Kids top and skirt, a fur from World and shoes from Sydney.
Josh from World, our choice on day 1, is a little more casual by weeks end but still looking good in Crowded Elevator tee, Stolen Girlfriends Club vest and necklace, Supra shoes and Lee jeans. Maddy wears Sass & Bide pants, a Youthworld dress, a bag she bought in Australia and some shoes Josh suggests are "Dominatrix shoes", also from Sydney.
Peter Marshall looked simple but cool in a Little Brother jacket, American Apparel T-Shirt, Versace jeans and Doc Martens.
Phoebe Watt wears a Mala Brakovic bodysuit teamed with a vintage skirt and Karen Walker sunglasses.
