My name is… Leilani, or Lani for short, and I’m currently based in South Auckland.
I run a blog called Lani Says (www.lanisays.com) which I began in January last year after I learnt that my partner and I would be living on and off in New York for 2011. I love being able to write about the things I’m interested in and passionate about, as well as document my travels so the blog has become a mash up of fashion/music/food/online-journal type posts.
What stood out for me in NZ Fashion during 2011 was the makeup at the Ruby Fashion Week show, I loved the pale violet lips and it’s something that I’ve seen a lot of women wearing lately, including myself. The Twenty Seven Names presentation was pretty incredible and I loved the neon yellow and blue at the Zambesi show (I was also lucky enough to wear one of the dresses from their fashion week show at the music awards last year! )
For 2012 fashion, I’m looking forward to seeing new Salasai collections, and how Dan Ahwa styles them, and I think it might also be the year I invest in some Lonely Hearts lingerie. I haven’t been to previous Fashion Festivals but this year I’m excited to experience as many shows and seminars as possible, I think I definitely need some help with my hair and makeup skills haha. I’ll hopefully be getting to hang with Katherine of Katherine is Awesome fame in my spare time too.
While I haven’t been before, the thing I’m consistently hearing from others as amazing and not to miss out on are the M.A.C seminars.
To me, NZ Fashion Festival is a great chance to see and experience what our talented designers have on offer, and to learn from experts in the industry in a personal and fun environment. Also, I’m secretly counting down the days to those designer garage sales!!
