THE NEW DAWN
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!
