During the week i was invited to dress three backupsingers for Turanga Merito, who was performing for Prince Harry & Meghan. I chose the formal look of my Poutama long skirt and matched it with two other garments each chosen to suit the wearer.Posted: Wednesday 31 October 2018
Donald, from Vivo Rotorua gave me a huge challenge, not just the garment but the timeline. I hand stitched the border top of the dress and hem of the dress and fused some sequin fabric for a shoulder bow. I was def happy with the results which were enhanced with bleached blonde hair and extensions and blinged out nails and shoes.

An evening of Fashion, Art, Dance and Music was enjoyed by those who attended Whangarei's inaugural event. I loved it. I mixed my old kakahu with the latest pieces to create looks for 10 gorgus Whangarei wahine. The collection was profiled as "From Blanket to Boardroom, to Ballroom"Posted: Wednesday 24 October 2018
