Fashion Forward Wedding Attire

A “delicate crochet trouser suit with chiffon ruffled sleeves” created by 50-year-old New Zealand label Vinka Design “stole the show among an assortment of flowing gowns”, Irish Independent writer Aishling Phelan reported from the Weddings Magazine Bridal Collection Show, part of this year’s New Zealand Fashion Week, which ran 2-8 September in Auckland.

“[Canterbury designer] Robyn Cliffe’s piece echoed [Sex and the City’s] Carrie Bradshaw’s famous wedding look with a stunning rusty-pink headpiece. Her wedding gown floated down the catwalk with a detailed beaded waist and chandelier earrings.

“John Zimmerman’s wedding look consisted of an off-white satin gown with belt that cinched in the waist. The look was completed with sprinkles of diamantes scattered across the dress.

“The fresh new designer has been called New Zealand’s answer to Valentino and is praised for his attention to detail in all his designs.”
