Models backstage/before the show
The Service Depot
Let me just preface this with the fact that I am a terrible shopper. And by this I mean, I tend to spend so much time browsing online, that to distance myself from further temptation, I avoid browsing brick & mortar stores, even though the overall experience surpasses any online bargain you could find. The Boutique Collections Showcase brought together Goodness, Hurricane Jeans, The Mews, Coco Wellington, The Service Depot, Design Cartel, and The Design Loft, and gave attendees a taste of what is already in store, for the upcoming summer.
By the time the second boutique had shown, I was beginning to get that urge to go shopping, which really shows how well it managed to hit the mark. It definitely dispelled the perception that Wellingtonians only wear black, with a huge proportion of looks surmised of punchy bright summer colours or neutral tones.
