Es-caping the cold

Deb Sweeney was trying to tell us last winter, and Juliet Hogan has just reiterated it -capes are back. And boy am I pleased. Dramatic, flowing, sweeping capes that hide all flaws and give the wearer a mysterious air. Fabulous. Juliet gives us two options for cape wearing this winter - light peachy and more like a dress, perfect with woollen tights and sky high booties to keep out of the puddles; or the good old enveloping heavy grey version. Take your pick, I want both. Deborah Sweeney

Lonely Hearts Club Lookbook

Lonely Hearts club have done it better, bolder, sexier and cleverer than ever before. Proving that they are key players in the NZ fashion industry, they came out with beautiful layering, sheers and knits for winter next year. I'm proud to see it features our favourite model Nicole Clulee of Red Eleven! A (faux) fur coat is going to be the trend staple of winter as seen on the runway at Sera Lilly, Stitch ministry, Barbara Lee, and here at Lonely Hearts. Get buying!

Spotted at NZFW

Thanks to the the girls' super crush on cute boy in hat, we managed to get these four stunners together for a photo op. Have you ever seen such a beautiful gang? I don't think it's coincidence that they are all part Maori. Fourteen year old Laken (far right) is set to make waves overseas very soon - let's just let her enjoy some teen life first.

I can see why the girls were overcome, us nanas were quite taken as well!

And how can we forget meeting Rhys Darby at Federation? Pity he refused to give us a roll call - he's not a dancing monkey. Both us and he agreed that his wife was funnier than him!

Final Day - NZFW

Slightly more low key day today, with Stitch Ministry, Federation, A*Muse, and Huffer; and followed by the long awaited Designer Garage Sale. Wow - a bargain hunters' dream, I picked up some mad and vibrant pieces to costume up my wardrobe.

The gorgeous girls from Oyl gifted me these fabulous mesh charcoal leggings from their yet to be released winter range. Find them in stores early next year.

Everyone loved Sams' sequin pants, including the greasy businessmen slurping Moet outside the cutting room.

Models do read - and in cute World velvet pants too

Passion for Fashion - Day 3 NZFW

A mad busy day - MiroModa, Starfish, Emma Ford, Trix and Dandy, Chapel, Hailwood... but the highlight of the day and week was Stolen Girlfriends Club. Held in a masonic lodge in Newton, the show was so popular that we were jammed in like cattle. There was no room for divas in this show.

What we wore:

The highlight for some was Pammy and her gender confuddled sidekick in their press conference in the Moet lounge. What a giggly and amusing pair. Pity the New Zealand media were too star struck and offended by the celebrity couple to ask any interesting questions. I understand that Richie was very disappointeed. I don't blame him, it was quite embarrasing how closed minded the media were. Lighten up guys. As Richie and Pammy would say, "We just want to have fun and be happy". And yes, Pamela was naked but for a scarf.

Outfit Day 2

We took over Robert from Remixs studio spot in the GHD room and had a bit of fun. Thanks Robert!

Playing dress-ups at Sera Lily - the jacket is made all of moss green sequins. Beautiful.
