Island Styles 2014

Added on by Vibeke.

Last Saturday we wrapped Island Styles 2014, a local Waiheke fashion and shopping event, held at Batch Winery, which has simply breathtaking views all the way back to Auckland. The event featured local designers, makers and creatives, and had an all local cast of models who did an amazing job.

I helped Louise and her team with their website, design work and social media. The original look and feel and art direction came from Amanda Wright (studioamandawright@gmail.com).

Louise always puts some inspired ideas in place, like asking our local members of parliament to model, last year we had Labours' Jacinda Ardern rocking the catwalk, so when Lou asked Nikki Kaye from National this year I suppose Nikki couldn't be chicken. Both are pretty glamorous as far as politicians go, but it takes a special kind of confidence to walk the runway. Wondering if Waiheke's own Denise Roche from the Greens is game for next Island Styles?
