Fashion in the Chapel with Rachel Hunter

It’s not very often a supermodel hangs out in Maori Hill but last night, at the John McGlashan College Chapel, Rachel Hunter wowed us with her girl power. The event was organized by Arthur Barnett to showcase their spring/summer fashion collection and also raise money for The Cancer Society of NZ (Otago Southland Division).

The most riveting part of the evening was the ‘Interview with Rachel Hunter’. She came across as strong, brave, candid, sincere, down to earth and with her Kiwi identity firmly intact despite living overseas for many years. She handled, with dignity, some inappropriate questions about her personal life, and was keen for audience participation.

One of us asked Rachel what advice she had for women to stay in shape given how amazing she looks. We could all relate to her response that we shouldn’t beat ourselves up over a bit of weight gain or loss due to the rollercoaster of life events. She admits to enjoying Cadbury’s chocolate but would balance it out by doing some Bikram yoga or pilates. Being skinny is not the be-all-and-end-all; more important is feeling sensual and healthy. It was surprising to hear that her likely career as a dancer was cut short by catching the infection toxoplasmosis in her teens. She last visited Dunedin in July and described it as “beautiful” – brownie points there!

After Rachel’s interview, the main fashion parade proceeded with models from Ali McD Aart Model Agency. We’ve never seen the girls look so beautiful as they did in Trelise Cooper’s feminine floaty dresses. The parade also featured other NZ labels such as Ricochet, Icebreaker and Gregory.

Zonta Fashion Show Raises Money For Stopping Violence Dunedin

Dunedin’s Kensington Army Hall had plenty of soldiers on duty last night but they weren’t executing their normal manoeuvres. Instead, they were escorting beautiful models down the catwalk and serving wine to over 300 lucky ladies at the Zonta Charity Fashion Show – Extraordinary Fashion 2013. Mercy Hospital was the main sponsor but it was great to see so many local designers and businesses also supporting this important cause!
