Fashion on Federal
Celebrate the Melbourne Cup in style at this ne-dining fashion collab
Fashion designer Trelise Cooper and SKYCITY are bringing the best of fashion and food together this month for New Zealand’s longest runway show on Federal Street. The event, set across five SKYCITY restaurants: Huami, Gusto at the Grand, MASU by Nic Watt, The Grill by Sean Connolly and The Sugar Club, will offer a long lunch or four-course dinner, admission to the Trelise Cooper runway show, and the live screening of the Melbourne Cup race.
At more than 400 metres long, the runway loops through the five restaurants, finishing at The Sugar Club. Models will wear garments from the Trelise Cooper and Cooper SpringSummer 2018 collections – with a focus on event and race-day wear.
For those escaping work early, lunch begins at 12.30pm with the first of three runway shows starting at 2pm. For those stuck at the office, The Sugar Club event starts at 4pm in time to catch the Melbourne Cup race, followed by a four-course degustation dinner.
Guests should dress to impress with the ‘best dressed’ from each restaurant winning a night’s stay at SKYCITY Grand Hotel. Cooper will select a supreme winner who will get an additional prize package, including an upgrade to the SKYCITY Grand Presidential Suite. Tue 7 Nov, SKYCITY, Federal St, central city
