New Zealand Fashion Week : Ruby and Liam show

So last week Auckland's fashionistas debuted their shows on the runway. Set in the Viaduct Events Centre, the venue housed several catwalk shows, hair and nail salons, bar, the designer garage sale, and fashion seminars.

Now although I enjoy fashion I have to admit that this was the first catwalk show I have been too. I loved it, and I hated it. One thing I hate that comes part and parcel of the fashion scene is the pretension within it. Looking around before the show people appeared to be more conscious of themselves and others, rather then just relaxing and enjoying it. Yet amongst the eyeballing there was an air of excitement which I found myself caught in.

Since I've been in Auckland the standard of its home grown fashion brands have really impressed me. Hip, yet tailored is something the Kiwi's really have nailed, and the RUBY and Liam collections showed just this. I found myself eyeing up several summer dresses which unfortunatly I just cant justify buying. Entitled 'Run, Run, Run', the collection was inspired by one girl's Parisian adventure, and carried this theme off beautifully. See more of RUBY's clothes here :

For a small country, damn Kiwi's do it well.
