Amber Whitecliffe's new winter range, Eclectic, has pops of red contrasted with moody blues and lots of bold prints! My favourite is the Cabello Top and the matching Cabello Skirt, which can be layered up for winter and then worn on its own in summer.
Amber, Nicole and I sat down with Carolyn Keep to chat about the pros and cons about being a designer in New Zealand, how we met and where it all began!
Grab a cup of tea, and head over to Fashionista Fail to read the post.
The Ashley Bomber in light grey and the Lulu Sweater were recently used in The Brim Label's new winter range photoshoot. Emma creates beautifully made hats in New Zealand, that are flattering, fuss free and unique. She is a one-woman-band: she designs, sources materials, does the pattern cutting and sews each hat with love and care from her Auckland studio!
A huge thank you to everyone who came to celebrate the launch of the new Winter collection! And a MASSIVE thank you to Amber for letting me host this at her boutique (and for being awesome just in general), Clara, Nik, mum, dad and Thomas for all your help leading up to and during the event. Don't forget to check your goody bags! Thanks to our sponsors Captives, Face By Samara and Veena's Cakery.
