Trealise Cooper Winter 2014 N.Z.F.W.

Bianca Fallon|Media Makeup

Trelise Cooper is a huge part of N.Z.F.W. showing each year since it’s conception.

With three shows organised for the 2013 shows, Coop Winter 2014 is her youth label and also her signature collection Trelise Cooper Winter 2014 showing twice in one day, one show for the buyers and another evening show for her sponsors all in a two day period.

With around 140 garments in each show Trelise has productions not fashion shows. She puts so much thought and effort into them with this year taking 50-60 minutes to seat everyone in The Westpac Tent.

The setting for this mammoth show was the Westpac Tent, New Zealand Fashion Weeks largest arena which featured the huge stage raised to eye level, so for me sitting front row was not the one as all you could see was the models feet. Fourth row up was the place to be on the aisle as each model stopped criss crossing the stage.
The first part was far removed from anything I have seen Trelise produce very punk with tartans, studs and models sporting up to three piercings in their noses & lips with black lipstick and huge beehive bouffant French rolls her.
Trelise’s fabrics are always a stand out for her collections and this range was also very individual.

Half way through the show a large tepee was brought down from the roof & changed the entire atmosphere which was targeted to a more mature audience who are Trelise’s bread & butter, the Remuera ladies that love the frills and signature fabrics.

The pictures really do speak for themselves as there are so many garments of all description’s it is hard to pin point a theme and easier to just show you my stand out pictures.

The real triumph was when Miss Cooper took to the catwalk herself and she could’ve been mistaken for one of the models, damn she looked the best I have ever seen her, healthy and glowing and hopefully the international buyers will keep her even busier this season.

Deryn Schmidt presented ‘Capture This’ for Autumn-Winter 2014 at this years New Zealand Fashion Week.

Deryn’s daughter is her inspiration, taking her first exclusive textile silk print from a photograph her 4 year old captured.

The show began with a dark palette, prints with rich velvets fabrics, 100% NZ made knit wear tunics that looked cosy warm, lightened up with champagne tones and silver sequences for evening wear, a beautiful maroon dress with a cape the draped over the front of the garments was a stand out design, with a splash of coral included.

Deryn’s forte is in smart, classy, elegant pieces with her black timeless structured jackets really hitting the spot for me.

A full range that would keep any working women’s closet happy with the versatility to mix and match season to season with design features front and back.

Andrea Moore A/W N.Z.F.W. 2014

Bianca Fallon|Media Makeup

Attending N.Z.F.W. each year you learn who all of the designers are and their individual styles. The interesting bit is watching them grow every year in comparison to their previous collections and Andrea Moore this year certainly did not disappoint.

The music and lighting was spot on, the hair and makeup was strong on beautiful models that could walk, complimenting the collection showing to a packed house.

Named ‘Northern Lights’ with a fantasy flair inspired by dark Nordic woods Andrea says ‘’Scandinavia was a real inspiration this season as they have a tradition of mysterious stories and enchanted animals, yet quite Gothic and arcane, contrasted with a design aesthetic is such pure simplicity. And of course the whole region is so beautiful in winter.’’

Andrea Moore’s prints can be spotted a mile away. Her prints included graceful swans, Swarovski crystals, lots of royal blue with contrasting orange and gold jewellery featured in many of the pieces.

Jacket capes in red, black and blue with gold zipper trims and large gold feature buttons, Andreas black leather shoulder holsters, some joining into belts with an attachment for on the shoulder for soft fake fur trim in royal blue and black! Love them!

I would suggest leaving home about 60 minutes early to secure a decent parking space and you can then hang out in the Laurent Perrier Champagne Lounge upstairs on Level 2 or perhaps the Bombay Sapphire Bar on the main ground floor. There are great jewellery and fashion exhibitions to view while fashion watching all of the interesting guests in their personalised outfits. Dress to impress and don’t miss getting your picture taken by the Remix team or any of the other social photographers attending like Blake from Biggie.

The Designer Selection Shows are high-energy night time shows produced over five nights. They include a seat, a huge goodie bag with treats and beauty products worth more than the value of your ticket that also gets you into the New Zealand Fashion Week venue!

Part of the fun is hustling for a front row seat and of course the wonderful goodie bags in the front and second rows. In my bag I scored some great Bonds socks and Jockey underwear in mine along with Brita water bottles, moisturisers, chocolate to get me through and much more.

There was a lot of rookie models in this show but they did well and one poor models shoe broke on her way back down the catwalk and she recovered very nicely. It was an entertaining show that got me into the swing of working the rest of the week and my partner who was attending his first show really enjoyed himself. So ladies, don’t be shy to drag the lads along.
