Fashion Thursday 6-9PM 10 Sept 2015
Fashion Thursday on K’ Road
26 events on one night - Thursday 10 Sept 6-9pm

Following on from the precinct’s showing at NZ Fashion Weekend, K’ Road designers will be throwing open the doors of their stores and studios on Thursday 10 September from 6-9pm at an event entitled Fashion Thursday All On K’ Road. The event, now into its third year, will be a celebration of the famed strip’s combined fashion flair complemented by events such as an emerging NZ designers market, fashion illustration, two on-street fashion parades and experimental collectives’ designs on show.

At the west end of K Road established label Lela Jacobs will be making her spring/summer statement in store, while newer names to the street, such as Jason Lingard, jeweller Thyen and weaver Christopher Duncan will be introducing their creative talents to the public for the second year. 10 year veteran Jimmy D will join the westenders with a pop-up store. His designs, described variously as dark, deconstructed and characterized by over-sized silhouettes, have achieved recognition in Vogue Japan and Taiwan and been selected for permanent installation at the country’s national museum Te Papa.

Nick von K, the avant-garde jeweller who takes inspiration from ‘a collection of strange and wonderful things’ including animal skulls, mammoth ivory and exotic butterflies will be studio-side at La Gonda Arcade. At 7 and 8pm his new jewellery range will parade the streets on exotically dressed models.

Red Bar hosts an ‘unusual’ fashion show at 8 pm with installation by Si Omer paired with food, cocktails and tunes to match. Leo O’Malley’s windows will come alive with a performance art gentleman’s club as a celebration of their eightieth year in men’s fashion. A pop-up shop and peep preview of the London Pacific Fashion Collective show at Waikare on Q in Queen St is a rare opportunity to see garments ahead of the London set. Featured designers include Shona Tawhiao, Louina Fifita and Jeanine Clarkin.

There's a secret makers guild under K Rd: The Underground Paper Doll Society. To become inducted, join Linda Lew in the Bread and Butter Basement to create paper dolls, dress them in fashionable finery and adorn them with trinkets and treasures. Bring kids along to this fun creative workshop!

From mainstreet store to hidden studio, the spectrum of K’ Road’s couture offering will be on show.
