Newmarket, the fashion capital of New Zealand, has extensive appeal and is home to Karen Walker, Zambesi and Kate Sylvester. Ponsonby is the hippest road in town and is bursting with designer fashion, while Parnell with its upmarket boutiques and galleries draws in those after high-end retail therapy. Suburban malls offer fashion and food for the avid shopper. It’s hard to go past the Sylvia Park complex in Mt Wellington, the country’s largest shopping centre, or NorthWest Shopping Centre at Westgate, Auckland’s newest shopping destination. Dress-Smart in Onehunga is also an extensive factory outlet centre. PAGE 10 - NORTH ISLAND MAP
