Here we are right in the mid­dle of another great sea­son of fash­ion in Auck­land, this last week with the Marr Fac­tory - five of New Zealand’s finest: Karen Walker, Nom D, Zambesi, Work­shop & He­len Cherry and Kate Sylvester once again show­ing, fol­lowed by NZ Fash­ion week, this week! This year saw a new dawn at the Golden Dawn, a new day Satur­day, Au­gust 23 to be ex­act - a day when a brood of fresh, young NZ de­sign­ers showed their wares: Ge­or­gia Alice, Eu­ge­nie, Glen Pren­tice, Penny Sage and Harman Gru­bisa rep­re­sent a strong edit of lo­cal emerg­ing de­sign tal­ent - cu­rated and over­seen by Black fash­ion ed­i­tor This­tle Brown. A month ago, we had al­ready in­ter­viewed Jessica Gru­bisa and Madeliene Harman as we had been privy to the de­vel­op­ment of the new la­bel (dis­clo­sure: Jessica is also a fash­ion ed­i­tor at Black ) and we felt their story was a good story al­ready, with lessons learnt, and lessons for oth­ers to learn. Then the Stephen Marr Gate­crash­ers night was an­nounced and we felt com­pelled to at least pho­to­graph the other ‘crash­ers and con­duct a few sim­ple in­ter­views! So call the cops, here come the Stephen Marr Gate­crash­ers!
