It’s a long journey on a jet to the top fashion capitals of the world. Whether its Milan, Paris or even New York, these cities are famous for their extravagant displays of en vogue designers. But what’s the need why travel so far when we have our own world of fashion right at our doorstep?
Auckland is celebrating its annual 4 Days of Fashion in the City from the 21st-24th March…and we cannot wait! Taking place in the bustling CBD, local stores are embracing the opportunity to make Auckland central a bonafide fashion destination. Along with a captivating choice of events, you can enjoy a blend of music, food and spectacular entertainment.
This unique experience is your chance to brush shoulders with some the industry’s most knowledgeable influencers. Over the four days, there is plenty of time to check out the in-store events ran by Auckland's fashion elite. We’re talking Moochi, Ruby, Mi Piaci and Storm, just to name a few. Our male counterparts haven't been forgotten either, with the likes of Barkers, Crane Brothers and Merchant being on the list.
Such an enticing roster of events is enough to make any regular fashion lover, into an expert. At each location, there will be a chance to expand your local and global brand knowledge. Spanning the four days are lessons on fashion history, meet and greets with famous designers and even an open-air fashion runway. If that’s not enough to coax you, the Designer Garage Sale taking place over two days surely will. Who can say no to that?
