I know it’s a few weeks on since the fashion weeks began but traveling and blogging seem to never go hand in hand together. No idea how any of the girls do it but I admire anyone who manages to get their FW content online in the same day (Katherine Lowe, I’m talking to you!).
NZFW has truly been one of the best highlights I’ve had during my blogging career and it wouldn’t have been possible without the kindness and support of everyone involved. Big and loving thank you’s going out to NZFW, Air New Zealand, Pullman Hotel Auckland, Ruby and NZ Tourism. And more specifically Anna, Calvin, Sammy, Eleisha, Jessica and Len Brown, who took care of me during my time in New Zealand. Also to all of the NZFW designers who invited me to their beautiful shows. It was a dream.
One of the craziest parts for me was I hadn’t had a break or been overseas in over two years so when left Sydney and landed in New Zealand a mere 3 hours later I was in awe. This is usually the amount of time I spend in front of the computer editing photos so to think I could be flying to New Zealand in the same time is just crazy. The people, the scenery, the shopping – there really is something so refreshing about New Zealand that is has me itching to go back.
I didn’t get much time to explore the city but I did manage to go vintage shopping on K Road, wandering down the beautiful boutiques along Ponsonby Road and spending too much money on High Street in the CBD. And to think this dynamic fashion scene has been right on our doorstep the entire time! Luke has never been to NZ before so I’m planning on taking him there for a nice little holiday and dedicating some proper time to discovering more about this beautiful place. With Air New Zealand offering direct flights from all Australian capital cities to Auckland I’m tempted to stop editing and just jump on a plane to NZ instead! You can find more information about flight schedules, ticket pricing and booking details here.
Still so many shows to blog about from NZ (Zambesi, Jimmy D and Twenty Seven Names coming soon!) but I thought I’d take a break from FW coverage and start blogging about New York. Definitely feeling more inspired than ever and I have NZ and NY to thank for that.
