I love autumn/winter fashion – the opportunity to wrap yourself in luxurious fabrics, add layers and accessorise with hats and scarfs. This season we are seeing an array of scrumptious deep colours, including burgundy, mustard and navy, as well as texture with furs and embroidered prints. In this issue you will find our runway report that takes a look at all the international fashion weeks; New York, London, Milan and Paris, and highlights our top trends from the four great cities. I was lucky enough a have one-on-one interview with Emilia Wickstead during iD Dunedin Fashion Week. The Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite designer gives us her advice on how to dress in a chic, effortless way. We also step back into the past to look at some of the world’s most renowned fashion icons and which contemporary celebrities can match their style and glamour. This issue of Fashion brings both a local and international view on trends and styles for the new season. Enjoy your fashion fix,

Leather is the perfect transition fabric. It’s easy to wear and works with almost anything. We love this leather trench by Chole. A must-have for autumn.
Polished British Style
Kaleidoscope Prints The seventies are alive again – or at least they were at Paris Fashion Week, with designers choosing a mixture of swirling prints, florals, metallics and paisleys. Combined with a variety of colourways, these garments created a kaleidoscope of colours and patterns. Givenchy stood out the most with its psychedelic collection. When it comes to mixing colours and prints this autumn, it would appear the advice from the fashion greats is: ‘forget the rules’. Embrace your psychedelic side and have fun this season.
Ruffles Ruffles have been reinvented this season. Gone are the girly frills and in their place are more structured, larger ruffles that create a powerful hemline. Think tiers of chiffon floating down.
Looking for fashion inspiration? British model David Gandy is the man to watch. His style is polished, preppy, effortlessly masculine and very British, gaining the attention of international media that now watch his every move. Embracing tailored fashions, David shows us how to perfect the smart wardrobe by mixing and matching essential pieces with a twist, such as tucking a waistcoat into pants.

This is a trend that we see each winter season, however, this year the style has slightly changed. During Milan Fashion Week we saw 18th century, British-soldier inspired jackets from Dolce & Gabbana and in New York Fashion Week big shoulders at Camilla & Marc. To be on trend this season look for the following; bold piping, rounded buttons, exaggerated shoulders.

The marathon is over, four cities in one month New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week autumn/winter fashion weeks have enthralled us with an array of style and glamour. We take a look at the top trends from the runway.
Amanda Wakeley, London
London was preparing for a cold winter with lots of lush furs, knits and beautiful wintry colours. Amanda Wakeley’s soft caramel furs received rave reviews, as did Burberry’s military jackets. Kiwi-born Emilia Wickstead’s collection had anklelength dresses named the new sexy length.
FENTY PUMA by Rihanna AW16 Collection, New York
Burberry, London Rachel Zoe
New York The Big Apple was abuzz with every fashionista in town. Some of the top trends included romantic plaits with lush furs à la Rachel Zoe. Puma’s black lips were the talk of the town and Marc Jacobs’ almost Elizabethan use of furs, leather and deep forest colours made for a must-see show.

As the trend toward casual and comfort continues, knitwear dominates the winter runways. increasingly, people are looking for a wardrobe that’s comfortable, easy care and will multi-task for work and play. LOcaL lifestyle brand Untouched World has watched consumer needs change over time. “As our lives get busier, there’s a move towards slow, sustainable fashion that can be dressed up or down, and won’t be in one season and out the next,” says Untouched World cEO Peri Drysdale. “It’s not just about looks and comfort either, our clients also want to know the origins of what they’re wearing – what it’s made from and who made it.” The new Untouched World™ Winter ’16 Collection embraces this philosophy delivering an exciting combination of paredback silhouettes with enduring style, and clever multi-tasking styles you can wear a bunch of ways (and they’re made locally from sustainable fabrics, of course!). Chunky knits make a comeback for both men and women, with mixed-gauge pieces and innovative knit structures creating interesting textural effects. Fine Merino layering comes in rich marled hues of ruby and blue, complemented with a refreshing splash of sunstone peach. The popular Energy Pants and Slouchy Pants for women are introduced in luxurious new fabrics, and the new Bliss Pant offers the guise of a dress pant with all the comfort of a pair of Merino trackies.

Navy is one of the most popular colours this season. Best of all, because it’s a darker shade of blue, it is both flattering and slimming, too. It’s also a better alternative to black, as it’s less harsh and carries an air of sophistication. Navy is most certainly the new black.

Five Minutes with eMilia wickstead
Photo of Emilia Wickstead - Robyn Wilson
New Zealand designer Emilia Wickstead – famous for dressing the Duchess of Cambridge – socialises in high society London circles, is a friend to the stars, and exhibits a style that is effortlessly chic, but with a twist. Editor Victoria Tait catches up with the fashionista while she is in her home country, to discuss her new collection, and the secret to looking sexy whilst still covering up.
Can you tell me a little bit about what you are wearing?
I love to collect pieces from every collection that I’m crazy about – this is a piece from my autumn/winter collection, two seasons ago. It’s our own geometric print made of wool – almost feels like a blanket, which is perfect for a cold day.
What is your inspiration behind your own personal style?
I find my own style is very organic and natural. I love the idea of being effortlessly chic, and the feeling of throwing on a red lippy and minimal makeup. I wear cuts that work for a woman’s body, so they don’t need to be tight fitting. I also love longer-length dresses and a sleeve.
Do you use yourself as a muse when designing?
I am always designing with myself in mind, that comes very naturally, but I am also designing for all women. I like to think there is a little bit of everything for everyone. I feel very comfortable in my clothes.
Can you give us some tips on how to achieve a sexy, yet elegant, look?
Sexy can be thinking outside the box, it doesn’t have to be a low V-neck or be short. What I love is that unique sophistication and creating a twist to
a garment. A high front with an open back and sleeve, yet showing off the right curves, is sexy. I used to do every fitting in my business for a very long time, and this gave me the understanding of what women feel comfortable in. If you are in your own skin then that is sexy. My spring/summer 2016 range has dresses with balloon sleeves and small cut-outs on the stomach, which adds a little bit of twist. It’s about showing a little and not too much.
In February you showed your new autumn/winter collection at London Fashion Week, what can we expect?
It is a little darker and more moody than my spring/summer collection. The colour palette was inspired by Erwin Blumenfeld – he was an incredibly influential photographer. It was his series called ‘Fantasies’ where he photographed the aristocracy during the sixties in London. I’ve picked up colours and tones from this and used them in the collection. I played a lot with jersey; there is nothing easier or more comfortable than a jersey dress. I also have used a lot of denim, which was a harsh streetstyle way to show Emilia Wickstead silhouettes. I’ve already been wearing one of the dresses in denim – it feels very cool. Each season I try to introduce something new and fresh, it’s the biggest challenge as a designer.

How To CHeCk If Your SuIT fITS n
It’s hard to make a great suit look good if it doesn’t fit properly. Follow our top tips to ensure you get the right fit and look polished this autumn. •
Ensure the shoulder pads end with your shoulders.
The chest and lapels of the suit should contour the shape of your chest, but should not be too tight or too loose. The lapels should not bulge, they should lie flat on the chest.
A jacket is too tight if an “X” is created around a fastened top button.
Check where your buttons are sitting. The top button of a two-button suit should not fall below your navel – note that this is the middle button of a three-button suit.
The sleeves should hang straight from the shoulder to the wrist. To test this, see if it falls where the base of your thumb meets your wrist.
Between a quarter and a half inch of shirt cuff should be visible.
The overall look of your trousers should be trim but not tight. Keep in mind that the pockets and the front of the pants should lay flat.

EMMA’S AT OXFORD
QUALITY MERINO FASHION AND BOOKS n
WHILE Emma’s at Oxford is predominantly a bookstore, it’s also your destination for an ever-growing and changing range of merino garments under the Merinomink and Untouched World labels. Owner Emma Gillard left the ‘big smoke’ of Auckland to open her store in June 2007. What started with books and gifts has continued to evolve, with Merinomink accessories quickly becoming one of the star attractions. About six year ago, merino gloves, scarves and wraps were added to shelves and their popularity has led to the extensive collection on offer today. “The products are simply the best quality. The styles don’t date, the garments don’t pill; they are investment pieces you will wear for years,” says Emma. “We all own, wear and just love them.” And so does everyone else: “Customers are coming back each season to see what’s new and indulge in a new piece – or three – or buy as gifts.”
Booklovers will love the large, diverse and highly recommended range of literature available in this picturesque country setting. “People regularly say they haven’t seen an offering such as ours in a long time,” says Emma proudly. Emma’s at Oxford is currently located in a beautiful art-deco building in Oxford’s Main Street, however, come the end of May, you’ll find them but a few doors down while the building undergoes earthquake strengthening and expansion. “I’m really looking forward to the end of the year and being back in a bigger and better building and really being able to showcase what we have on offer,” says Emma. A place to find warm, stylish accessories and something satisfying to read sounds simply idyllic.
Ponchos are another fashion accessory for which Emma’s has become known. “We’re known as the Poncho Queens by the sales team at Merinomink!” Emma says with a laugh. “In fact, our best-selling colour is a rich navy blue called Zephyr and we were told we were the third biggest seller in Australasia of that particular line last year.” Not bad going for an independent bookstore in a country town.

Meanwhile, rusty reds, smokey greys and a hint of mustard make up just one colour palette in a shop full of rich colour.

Past and Present Fashion icons n
We are so familiar with the fashion icons of the past, such as Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Bridget Bardot. Their style and glamour instantly reminds us of a time where elegance and sensuality was key. We take a look back at their signature styles and what current celebrities will follow in their fashion footsteps.
Katharine Hepburn Known for her tomboy style, Katharine Hepburn made trousers a fashion statement for women. She was a natural beauty who didnâ€™t fuss over her hair and makeup, keeping her look minimal. Hepburnâ€™s classic look included simple, button-down blouses, sharply tailored blazers and polished loafers. She was full of attitude, confidence and sex appeal. Signature look Wide-legged pants, loafers, button-downs, sharp blazers. Modern MuSe Cate Blanchett. They are so similar that Blanchett even played Hepburn in the film Aviator. Both women have an air of confidence about them that shows though their style.

Marilyn Monroe The true Hollywood glamour star, with an ability to own a sexy, sultry and yet irresistibly vulnerable vibe. Monroe wore what are now considered some of the most iconic outfits of all time, including the billowing white halter-neck dress and her pink satin strapless dress with operalength gloves. Her clothes were fitted and tight to show off her beautiful curves, always a high heel, but surprising very minimal jewels. Signature look Skin-tight wiggle dresses, high-waisted jeans, capri pants, oversized sweaters, halter-neck dresses, high heels. Modern MuSe Scarlett Johansson. She is most definitely our modern-day Monroe, with her blonde hair, curvy figure and ability to make everything she wears look sexy.

Brigitte Bardot This French icon was known as a model, actress and muse to Andy Warhol. She was the woman who made the bikini famous, through her film Manina, la fille sans voiles (The Girl in the Bikini), 1952. She also started a trend of knitwear with a wide neck, which exposes both shoulders, later termed the ‘Bardot neckline’. She was also known for her flat shoes and is said to have asked designer Rose Repetto to make shoes as light as ballet shoes – this was the beginning of the ballerina flats. Signature look Bardot neckline sweaters, white scoop-neck T-shirts, cropped jeans, ballet flats, wide black headbands, bikinis, short shorts. Modern MuSe Elle MacPherson. Brigitte Bardot might have made the bikini famous, but Elle MacPherson showed us how it should look.

Diana Ross Diana Ross symbolises the 1970s, disco-era fashion. With her slinky, draped gowns, fur stoles, widebrimmed hats, angel sleeves and sequins galore. Ross always looked like the disco diva. Signature look Slinky dresses, fur accessories, a turban, long and loose dresses, fringed accessories.

Jackie Kennedy Growing up between New York and an East Hampton estate, Jackie was well educated in fashion, poise and etiquette. On her arrival to the White House, Jackie hired Hollywood designer Oleg Cassini to create her wardrobe, she pulled pieces from Dior, Givenchy and Chanel. During her time as The First Lady, Jackie’s style was sensible heels, gloves and empire-waist gowns. Later in life, when she moved to New York, her style changed quite drastically, but still retained the polished glamour. Signature look Sleeveless A-line dresses, low heels, cleanly tailored suits, oversized sunglasses, wide-leg jeans, pearls.

A swipe of dark lipstick and a low sleek ponytail is the big trend for this season. The look is about strength, elegance and sophistication. Follow our tips on how to achieve the look.
MAC Diva lipstick
The first step is deciding where to put your part. Centre or side-parted, each creates an elegant and polished look. Once you’ve decided on a part, smooth out your hair with straighteners.
Lips Line the lips prior to applying lipstick to prevent bleeding or feathering.
Add some shine serum. Be careful to focus the serum from the mid-lengths to the ends, as you don’t want greasy roots.
Fill in lips with your oxblood lip colour (we love MAC lipstick in Diva). Use a lip brush to clean up the area around the lips with a concealer.
Use a clear elastic or hairband that matches the colour of your hair. Carefully gather hair into a low ponytail. Place the pony at the nape of your neck and secure it with the elastic. Finish by spraying some hairspray onto the bristles of your brush to smooth out any remaining frizz. Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide

the 3-Step plan to Make healthy habitS Stick n
Health and Wellness Coach Annabelle Matson gives us the means to lead a healthier life. Add, modify and delete – it’s as easy as ABC.
When it comes to eating habits and making improvements to our health in general, trying to change absolutely everything about our lifestyle overnight very rarely works. We often think: “If I can’t eat/do things perfectly, I shouldn’t bother at all.” As a recovering perfectionist, I totally get that. However, this clearly doesn’t support success. It just keeps us stuck right where we are, on the dieting rollercoaster, never seeing results for the long term. I always say to my clients, “over time not overnight”. We want to do things gradually, because that’s what results in permanent change. Why weight loss and many health programmes often don’t work is because we go from eating whatever we want, to restricting everything. So, instead of drastically restricting everything, use my three-step tool – add, modify and delete. Pick one thing you want to add Pick one thing you want to modify Pick one thing you want to delete
FOR ExAMPLE Add: A morning meditation to centre you for the day. Modify: Refined sugar intake. Alcohol is a huge source of sugar – so instead of drinking during the week, stick to a few just on the weekends. Delete: Eating after 8pm. Commit to the add, modify, delete plan for 30 days. Once that all becomes a habit – start a new add, modify, delete plan. When you do steps incrementally like that, it creates new habits. You won’t feel overwhelmed and it feels really manageable. Like magic, it all starts to become a lifestyle that you LOVE and that are you motivated to sustain.

Let’s talk lips with Koru Clinic The features on a person’s face can change or determine how they are perceived, and we are all subconsciously affected by these cues. Every time we see a face, we make judgments on that person’s character and personality, and all this happens instantly and automatically in our brains.
“Your face is unique. Trust your injectable wrinkle treatments to an experienced Cosmetic Physician”
Years spent talking, chewing, pouting, smoking or smiling can lead to lines and wrinkles around the lips. Lip fullness can also be an indicator of aging, as time spent biting or pursing the lips can lead to deflated, thin lips over time. Lips are also especially vulnerable to environmental effects, as the skin on the lips is less than a third of the thickness of the skin on the rest of your face.

Many women really want to improve the appearance of their lips but are understandably very scared about looking like a duck, especially after the all too common publicised disasters affecting some unfortunate celebrities. These days we all recognise women are looking for a natural appearance rather than looking like a “Kardashian”. Dermal fillers for the lips are one of the most popular cosmetic medicine treatments available, and are a very quick and easy way to dramatically improve your look. They typically last between 12 – 14 months, and are hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin, meaning the risk of adverse reactions to the procedure is very, very small. Recovery time is usually around 1 day.
“Your face is unique. Trust your most valuable asset to us.”
There are generally 3 types of requests for lip fillers at Koru Clinic, clients who want to: 1. Boost Lip Volume 2. Minimise smokers lines 3. Define the lip border & reduce lipstick bleed Younger patients tend to go for larger lip volumes, whilst more mature women
want a more natural lip augmentation. At Koru Clinic we only recommend using hyaluronic acid based fillers with high safety profiles, and after assessing each persons lips will decide on the most appropriate filler for the augmentation. Dr Jefferies is a cosmetic Physician working at Koru Clinic. Call 372 3589 for an appointment to chat about a lip augmentation.
