MAFW Day 3

Billich Gallery, 10.00am
Ever since that day in 1990 when Francis Hooper and Denise L'Estrange-Corbet were stood waiting for a bus in Auckland, life just hasn't been the same. The move into the fashion business has been a decision none of them have regretted. WORLD has been shown at official fashion weeks in London, Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore etc. Their collection today included very strong colours, as often as safe ones such as sand, granite and black. Different patterns were often mixed or worn as separates with plain black, but the focus in each number was clearly the vibrant colours. More spectacular than the clothes were the hair creations by Kieren Street and co. from Valonz. Having a second look at this show might have helped us to a more positive attitude, but the invite "The Kung Fu kids at WORLD wanna stick a dagger in your ass!" doesn't particularly appeal to us.
