Capital fashion week off to a gleaming start
High winds might have seen most Wellingtonians pull on their polar fleeces yesterday, but it was high glamour as the capital's second Fashion Week kicked off last night.
Auckland-based designers World showed their current autumn/winter collection, 'Boring Gets You Nowhere', to a sold-out crowd at Odlins Plaza on the waterfront. Richly textured fabrics - lace, velvet, sequins, gold-flecked tweed and rabbit fur accents - gave an edge to the label's elegant tailoring.
Fashion Week organiser Cameron Sneddon said he hoped the event, which concludes on Sunday, would boost the New Zealand fashion industry.
