Incase you haven’t heard, it’s iD Dunedin fashion Week, and I’m capturing event and street style as part of iD Media! I’m also sharing as many of my my own looks this week with the aim to shine a spotlight on vintage and inject more colour into the crowds.
I’ve never been to the International Emerging Designer Awards, so am pretty pumped to see some design risks that are really over the top! Tanya Carlson, one of the judges says “Wearability does come into it, but it is not the overriding factor”. So I am hoping to see some really quirky, unique ideas! My outfit for tonight has a dodgy wearability factor as I also have to carry my big camera bag to snap some street style before the show, which will be tricky (and not so glamorous). But I just can’t resist showcasing this amazing violet crochet cape! It doesn’t deserve to stay home because I want to take photos. Fingers crossed it works out!
