Shop with The Register: Dress up for New Zealand Fashion Week

Retailers are busy, and busy people don’t have time to be constantly catwalk-ready. But if you’d like to shine a little brighter while checking out the new season apparel at New Zealand Fashion Week, here’s some great ideas for professional women.

Onceitis a New Zealand ecommerce retailer which sells premium outlet stock at discount prices. Founder Jay Goodeywas just 22 when he launched the platform in 2010, and it’s snowballed from that point.

Our picks from Onceit’s current range include:

Salasai’s Domestic Dress in Chain N Hound Print White.This print from Salasai’s ‘Syndicate’ collection is a little bit cute, a little bit tough and hangs just right. It would work well layered.

Kowtow’s Legacy Jumpsuit in Grey Melange. We’re told that New Zealand label Kowtow is known as the unofficial uniform for gallerists and other members of the art industry, and we can see why – its ethically-made organic cotton garments are as comfortable as they are chic. Look effortlessly cool in this jumpsuit.

Harman Grubisa’s Madeleine Single in Black. Sometimes you just want to throw on something black and classic and not give the matter any more thought. This beautiful silk twill organza singlet by Auckland up-and-coming label Harman Grubisa should do the trick.

Unreal Fur’s Liquid Fudge Jacket in Ombre Olive to Plum. If this doesn’t catch a street photographer’s eye, we don’t know what will! Plus, it’ll keep you cosy on these still-chilly late winter nights.

The Dressing Room’s Flounce About Town Coat in Pink/Plum. Not only is it available from sizes 12-24, this colour-blocked coat from New Plymouth label The Dressing Room is structured enough to scream quality, and its fluted sleeve is bang on trend. 

Puma Womens’ Basket Platform Trade in Black and White. Attending New Zealand Fashion Week in your most impressive heels is tempting, but unless you’re a veteran who’s used to being on your feet in stilettos all day long, you’ll have deep regrets before the week is out. Be kind to yourself and try these edgy yet classic throwback Puma sneakers instead.

Beau Coops’ Empson shoe in Black. If you’re going to wear a heel, wear New Zealand label Beau Coops’ wonderfully architectural Italian-made numbers. The block heel will treat you well and its shock of Klein blue stands out in a crowd.

Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noir. What else?
