NZFW17 | Katherine Victoria AW18

TEXTURE!!! I had to write that in caps because that is what Katherine Victoria’s debut collection at NZFW on day 2 screamed at me. That should not be taken the wrong way either, the ensembles that paraded down the runway longed to be touched.

We had velvet, paillette sequins, faux fur, shearling and frayed applique.

It was feminine, fun, tactile, colorful and completely wearable with the silhouette focusing more on a cinched waist. The pieces that I loved were perhaps the more understated ones with the embossed knit dress and the emerald green pussy bow dress that looked absolutely stunning on Mary Maguet.

I should mention that this was perhaps one of the few diverse shows at NZFW so far.

The beauty look for the show was a favorite with a bold liquid line bordering the eyes that gave it an edge. I felt perhaps the tassel earrings were an after-thought and weren’t really needed.
