Taking you back to this past New Zealand Fashion Week in Auckland for a hot second this Sunday. I woke up this morning dreaming the countryside. This photoshoot from August immediately came to mind. Team Suarez stopped at Cornwall Park to shoot a few campaigns while we were in town, and we were absolutely blown away with the green pastures and adorable groups of sheep. It’s really just a calming place. Seeing something like this in the middle of a city is the magic of New Zealand. I wore this stunning Rejina Pyo dress, plucked out of my wardrobe from my Net-a-Porter project. It’s a piece that immediately makes you feel royal, or like Belle in Beauty and the Beast. I love something so glamorous paired with something so simple and down-to-earth, like my favorite Frye cowboy boots. New Zealand was the perfect backdrop for a fashion week focused purely on sustainability. Because why not celebrate sustainable practices by being surrounded by nature and the beautiful world we love and cherish? For now, I’m trying to figure out how to make this my backyard.

New Zealand Fashion Week, that is a wrap! When I think of New Zealand fashion designers, first that pops to mind is Karen Walker. Quirky. Colorful. Elegant. There’s something fascinating about visiting a new country and discovering new designer labels to love. And I travel far and wide to do so: Tel Aviv, Casablanca, and even Seoul! I’m proud to add New Zealand to my list of expanding fashion weeks around the globe. It really is discovering culture and ethics through clothes. This year’s New Zealand fashion week had a focus on sustainability. Every designer showcased designs sourced completely sustainably from fabrics, to factories, and final production. I find it important to support the designers with an ethical supply chain. Every piece tells a story. Every piece is slow fashion. And that just makes me really happy to know that the industry I love is working towards giving back to the earth we all cherish. Quality over quantity. That’s how it always should be. Below you’ll find looks from my viewpoint in the front row at Maggie Marilyn, YuMei, Paris Georgia, and Olli. With it’s luxurious fabrics and details with a whimsical flair, it felt like earth meets city. New Zealand may be a small country, but it’s doing big things.
