With New Zealand Fashion Week kicking off in two weeks, the industry is buzzing with events and parties right now. Returning to the runways for another exciting year is The Marr Factory – this year presented by the soon-to-launch ShopViva – in association with Bombay Sapphire. The event runs from the 17th to 23rd August.
The event kicks off on Sunday 17th with the Karen Walker show, followed by NOM*D on Monday 18th, Zambesi on Tuesday 19th, Workshop & Helen Cherry on Wednesday 20th, and Kate Sylvester on Thursday 21st. The ‘MF Gatecrashers’ show featuring up-and-coming Kiwi designers Eugénie, Georgia Alice, Harman Grubisa, Penny Sage, and Glen Prentice will be held on Saturday 23rd.
To celebrate, Bombay Sapphire’s New Zealand Brand Ambassador Dickie Cullimore has created a bespoke cocktail list inspired by the designers’ collections. The exclusive collection will be served in the Bombay Sapphire Cocktail Lounge at Golden Dawn (where the shows are being held). Sounds tempting, doesn’t it?
Well, for one lucky reader, I’ve got a double pass Bombay Sapphire Experience at The Marr Factory to giveaway this week. Excited much?
Valued at over $350, the prize includes a double pass to the Workshop & Helen Cherry show on Wednesday 20th August including UBER to and from the event, a Bombay Sapphire goodie bag, access to the Bombay Sapphire VIP lounge, and complimentary Bombay Sapphire Cocktails. Um, yes please!
Note: Must be 18 years and over to enter.
Still keen to go along anyway? There are some limited tickets available to the shows – you can purchase them here. The ‘MF Gatecrashes’ show is unticketed but will be subject to a first-come, first-served basis so arrive early!
