Kiwis Take the Runway at New York Fashion Week
Karen Walker took to the runway at the Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week, with a collection Style.com described as ‘easygoing’. According to The Department of News, the collection, titled Utopia, looked to the contrasting nature of Krishna-style, “the mix of traditional Eastern utility with modern urban practicality”.
The runway show also saw the debut of Walker’s collaborations with BePositive shoes, and New Zealand accessory designer, Benah.
Another New Zealand-native, Rebecca Taylor, took to the runway earlier in the week. Inspired by Pierre-Auguste Renoir when he said, “There are enough ugly things in life for us not to add to them”, Taylor aimed to create a collection that was “modern, fresh, and beautiful”.
According to Style.com Taylor achieved this, while not forfeiting her signature ultra-feminine style, in collection described as “youthful, light, and [embracing] the ‘fresh beauty’ she aimed to create”.
