There was a lot of Antipodean pride going on during NYFW. Zimmermann and Dion Lee both showed for the first time, TOME delivered an incredible presentation, Benah collaborated with Karen Walker, and somehow I ended up wearing Australian labels almost every day of the week.
Even though I’m from New Zealand and now live in London, I still think of Sydney as my spirtual homeland (it’s true). So it felt highly appropriate that the Zimmermann SS14 was my first show of the week. The collection was clean, modern and sculptural with a fresh Australian edge. And that pleating? So good.
