There was definitely an exciting buzz in the air before and long after Hailwood's highly anticipated AW 11/12 show. Everyone I spoke to on the first day of NZFW told me is was a must see event so I was eager to see what all the hype was about. Named after Adrian Hailwood's mother, "Catherine" was a collection as beautiful as it was unique, which didn't disappoint in the slightest. Focusing on simplicity and a sleek "grown up glamor", models were given natural looking hair and clean minimal make up with a striking bold red lip (A look I personally love). Black, white and cream dominated most of the collection with subtle hints of navy and blue floral prints occasionally making appearances in kimono like jackets and tops. Wide brimmed hats, large side splits and black fringing reinforced the Spanish meets Country Western vibe with one dress made completely out of two toned fringing that took over 55 hours to construct by hand. Personal favourites was the "Zora" blue lady print dress which was named after Adrian's friend and long time muse Zara Boyd, and the pom pom poncho seen above. Hailwood will be taking his show to LA on October 18th and If NZFW was anything to go by I'm sure he'll find global success far beyond our sunny shores.
