At the iD Dunedin Fashion Show, Friday 24 April, Dunedin Railway Station

The Octagon was buzzing, Di Lusso was packed out with showgoers trying the Designer Cocktail Series and the evening was beautiful. Some of our show highlights: poppy images cascading down the facade of the Railway Station; the refreshing enthusiasm of Doris Raymond as she took to the catwalk with her model; Daniel Kwok’s East-meets-West red showstopper; watching Foureyes in action just in front of us; and seeing so many great Dunedin labels rocking it to retro music.

iD Dunedin Fashion Show, Friday 4 April

 

On a beautifully warm Friday evening, we headed with great anticipation to the Dunedin Railway Station for the 15th anniversary of the iD Dunedin Fashion Show. All three of us were able to attend the pre-function, held in the Art Station, as guests of the lovely Tania from Configure Gym. The gathering was a who’s who of NZ fashion’s most influential people including Denise L’Estrange-Corbet (WORLD), Charlotte Smith (curator of the Darnell Collection) and bloggers Foureyes – we looked on in awe. The show was one of the best we have ever seen – so many pieces on our wishlists!

Dunedin At a Glance

We don’t always notice the little things we walk past everyday especially when our senses are bombarded with the noise and motion of the urban jungle. It’s nice to take time out and pretend you’re a visitor to your own city. You never know what you might spot.

Spotlight on: ‘Inside Out’ Secondhand Designer Clothing Boutique

For visitors and locals alike, ‘Inside Out’ is a must-go-to destination! Vintage haute couture collector Charlotte Smith would agree. When she was here for iD Fashion Week, she raved about her ‘Inside Out’ experience and bagged lots of goodies. Cindy King has been running the business for 14 years and has only recently relocated it to the convenient location of 492 George Street. The shop has been refurbished and extended to also include her menswear collection. So girls don’t forget to bring your guys with you on your next visit.

What sets this secondhand clothing boutique apart from others? Lots of things. The interior is stylish and uncluttered. The clothing, with a focus on local/New Zealand designers, is immaculately presented. There is a quick turnover of items so there’s always something new to look at. Nothing is too much trouble for Cindy and her right-hand woman Deby. Their fashion knowhow means that they can predict which customer will suit a particular item when it comes in. Just let them know what you’re looking for!

A speciality of ‘Inside Out’ is their client evenings. These are completely free of charge and even include nibbles and wine. Just come along with your friends or work colleagues (minimum of 10) and enjoy a fun time exploring the racks. You will need to book in advance but timing is very flexible.

These photos say it all!

What a magical (and warm) evening down at the Railway Station! We couldn’t capture all the designers but we did our best and we do confess to having some favourites. The music was an eclectic mix including the Sex Pistols and Adele’s ‘Skyfall’. Here goes…
