We loved being part of the New Zealand Weddings Magazine Show at New Zealand Fashion Week this year, and today we bring you a few backstage snaps of how our days went while we were backstage dressing models and preparing our collection for the catwalk!
Models Rebecca, Sophie and Ariel in our latest designs. Pre-show its important for designers to hold fittings with models so we can allocate gowns to the girls that are best showcased for each individual figure.
Designers often have show cards with all of the information of the outfit that each model is to wear, this ensures things run smoothly on the day and helps backstage volunteers get an idea of how the gown is to be styled.
Hair and makeup is vital in helping to tell the story of the whole look. The team from Bobbi Brown and Joico did a wonderful job.

Rebecca showcased the finale outfit in our capsule collection, this is of course usually reserved for the most standout look, which we thought appropriate for this bold veil and gown which featured a three metre long train!
Natalie with one of the dresses. This design has been appliqued with beautiful hand painted silk flowers.
