There were so many events in Fashion Week it was impossible to get to all of them. Here’s a sample of some of the things we did attend.
Charlotte Smith Book Signing in the Golden Centre, Dunedin
Meet Stephen Jones in the Golden Centre, Dunedin
Kimberleys Window, A Nod To Stephen Jones
iD Fashion Show
Meet the Emerging Designers, Dunedin Public Art Gallery
‘Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen’ talk at Toitu Otago Settlers Museum
Dr Jane Malthus shared her pearls of wisdom about the psychology of colour, why the quality of 19th Century garments is so incredible and why purple/indigo is worn by the wealthy only – there is no synthetic form of it. She took us on a journey through fashion history: from the creation of dyes to the application of colour blocking. She also explains why blue and green should never be seen. Her reason was not based on fashion snobbery but because they clash on the colour wheel!
