NZFW Day 1 // Evening Shows

Holy shit it's Rachel Rutt backstage at Stolen Girlfriends!

The second half of day 1 was awesome. The 'Underground' presentation is always one of my favourite events of the week. This year it was particularly spooky. The models sat in groups in different areas of the Silo and stared into your eyes and into your soul. Maya Cotton had a waterfall on her chest and another girl had one of those creepy white contacts in. The Meadowlark Jewellery looked great and they had Rachel Rutt as one of their girls. I'm a bit obsessed with her as you can probably tell.

The Underground presentation was held in one of the silos down in Wynyard Quarter. It featured Blue Blank, Jason Lingard, Jimmy D, Jojo Ross, Meadowlark and Thprks. It was a dark and a little spooky with models sitting and standing in different areas in the venue dressed wearing a variety of different grungy ensembles.

Trelise always puts on a great show. Giant lanterns hung above the runway and the models had hair almost as big. Highlights were the American Indian headdresses (that caused a bit of controversy), the bold prints and the bohemian style designs.

Finally the off-site Stolen Girlfriends Club show held outdoors at the Western Springs Speedway. I was disappointed there weren’t any drifting minis but those boys sure know how to put on a show. What better way to finish the day than with an espresso martini and a bit of a party. This collection was slightly more pulled back compared to their previous few collections. I’m a big fan! I loved the pop of yellow they used in some of their plain knits, I saw the perfect pair of light wash jeans and it looks like they might’ve mastered the leather jacket too.

Low-lights: A certain well-known NZ model who isn't too young to not know better being a total B backstage. Tyla saw the whole thing too and so now we're real scared of her.

Day 2: Looking forward to Zambesi, Juliette Hogan and 'aim' by Huffer
