Marr Factory 2014 - Karen Walker's Grrrl Power Revolution

Viva La Revolution!
1

Karen Walker kicked off the Marr Factory at Auckland's Golden Dawn last night, by presenting her summer 2014-15 collection, 'The League'.

'The League' was inspired by the women's suffragette movement, particularly in New Zealand (did you know it was the first country to give women the vote?), and the collection is a mash-up of Victorian garb and flourishes from that other major period of liberal change; the '60s and '70s. The girls stomped down the runway - and when we say runway we mean an adorable pink chalk-drawn line on the Golden Dawn's (a bar in central Auckland) ground -  in Karen Walker sunglasses with orange lenses, feline eyeliner and bags declaring (in a BOLD UPPER CASE TYPEFACE because SASS) "Liberal, Miserable and Cynical". 

The Marr Factory is a week of in-season shows, hosted by Stephen Marr and the Golden Dawn Tavern of Power that has taken place in Auckland the week before New Zealand Fashion Week for the past three years. It's Fashion Week for the general public, with a loose atmosphere and even looser morals, basically. Which is to say that we'll be here all week; tonight, NOM*d!
