“Maverick NZ designer” Karen Walker is to return to Australian catwalks, showing a variation on her Runaway collection (recently acclaimed at London Fashion Week). Walker plans to modify the Runaway range for her southern hemisphere sisters: “It will be a kind of wintery version of the collection, more coats and less bikinis.” Also making international impressions is NZ-born designer, Nicole Garrett. The former Harpers Bazaar fashion editor has “become the toast of New York” with her high-end range of denim, Habitual. The “hand-finished and incredibly detailed” pieces have, according to a SMH insider, “created a huge buzz in the States.”
