Marr Factory 2014 - Gatecrashing With Georgia Alice, Eugenie and More

The new fashion kids on the block.

After seven nights of drinking free alcohol and watching beautiful people make their way down a tiny chalk-drawn runway (because my job is so hard) Stephen Marr's 'The Marr Factory' came to a close on Saturday night with the inaugural 'Gatecrashers' show.

The 'Gatecrashers' show is basically a new generation show; five relatively new Auckland-based designers 'gratecrashed' the event that usually only includes established names like Karen Walker and Kate Sylvester, to present a few looks from each of their summer 2014-15 collections. The show opened with a monochromatic set of pieces from Georgia Alice's Source family-inspired summer 2014-15 collection 'Waves', followed by Penny Sage's effortlessly minimal collection (striped jumpsuits!), to very new kids on the block (summer 2014-15 is their first season!), Harman Grubisa's disco era-inspired, ladylike separates, and then on to Liz Wilson A.K.A Eugenie's luxuriously-detailed workwear. The show closed with Glen Prentice's collection - a tutorial in effortless, nineties-inspired dressing -  and the show as a whole suggested that there is an impressive, new breed of designers in New Zealand, who are changing, or at least will change, the notion that New Zealand's fashion aesthetic is gothic and intellectual. Not that these guys aren't smart, of course, they're just having fun with it too, and we can't wait to see what they do next.
