Popular Auckland-based label Stolen Girlfriends Club will debut a new high winter collection as this year’s national guest designer at iD Dunedin Fashion Week.
The “actual winter” collection, titled ‘The Curse That Flew Right Past You’ will be launched at the iD Fashion Show at the Dunedin Railway Station on Friday March 24 and Saturday March 25, featuring a ‘luxurious mix of grunge-inspired classics with a utility feel’.
Creative Director Marc Moore will join this year’s judging panel for the iD International Emerging Designer Awards and will give a public talk at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery during the week. The addition of Stolen Girlfriends Club follows a proud tradition of showcasing high profile local labels on the iD runway, which in the past has included Zambesi, Liz Mitchell, WORLD, Hailwood, Cybèle, Yvonne Bennetti, Doris de Pont, and last year’s Kate Sylvester.
“I’m really excited about being part of the judging panel and can’t wait to see what the new designers are doing,” says Moore.
“This is the first year we’ve been involved in iD Fashion Week and I’m really looking forward to it. We really love Dunedin. Every time we come down we meet so many great people and always have an awesome time!”
iD Dunedin Fashion Week committee chair Cherry Lucas says iD audiences will be thrilled to see Stolen Girlfriends Club on the iD catwalk for the first time.
“Stolen Girlfriends Club is fresh, gritty, fun and rock ‘n’ roll and will make a great addition to iD this year. The label has long been a favourite in Dunedin and, as out national guest, we’ll be excited to see what the brand will be bringing to iD that is new and different and distinctly Stolen Girlfriends Club.”
