New Zealand Fashion Weekend: The Ponsonby Show

"Sara Tetro is eating muesli front row"
- @PattyHuntington ( )

Last Friday I arrived home after a five day hockey tournament, then it was off to fashion weekend, followed by a
 modelling job on Monday and a blogger meet up/event on Tuesday  Phew! Its been a busy week, and today it was
 back to the boring daily school routine. So I may have piles of homework and exams next week, but there is always
 time for a blog post and more NZFW talk ;)

When I bought my fashion weekend tickets a month ago, I spent hours analysing each show and which showed the 
most potential. I was attracted to the Ponsonby show because of it's exciting range of NZ 
designers including Taylor,
Andrea Moore,Kingan Jones and Storm. So that's where I found myself last Saturday (front row woop woop!) and two 
collections particularly stood out to me. Andrea Moore was full of bright colours and prints, causing an agonising pull 
for my wallet, especially when I saw the daisy lace coat and printed suit (both pictured below). Taylor was my other 
favourite, and on the opposite end of the scale to Andrea Moore, featuring an entire black and white collection in the 
show. I actually loved the basic colour palette, as to me, it allowed you to see the true beauty of the garments. The
 intricate design and high quality fabric really drew my eye in. They used unique textures and cut outs to create 
something really edgy and cool, definitely worth a look on-line.
