Junior designer selected for fashion week “Resene described Suzie Q as having “a sweetly pretty camellia petal elegance, full of pink perfection.” “Flowers always make a great motif so I looked into pink camellia’s and found they symbolise loss or given to someone who is missed, in Suzie Q’s case I decided she is missing a part of herself. “Combining that, Suzie Q wears her memories embossed into her coat as armour to protect her while her heart is left open with the plunging neckline and all the lacing is there to hold her together. “I always aim to create something fashion forward unique and to be true to who I want to be as a designer,” Susan explained. Susan said following her debut with her fellow students at fashion week she would be headed home to work on a mini collection for her diploma show. She said she hoped to travel in the future before returning to work on her own fashion label.

Continued from page 1. Susan was one of the seven lucky enough to be selected for both India and New Zealand Fashion Week and was excited about her selection. “I was so incredibly nervous,” she said. “With all the anticipation it was a very surreal moment when I heard my name called out. “It’s a dream come true, I’m beyond excited.” Susan was currently in India and said the opportunity led her to embrace colour more. “The colour and culture is so amazing and inspiring,” Susan explained. “I’ve learnt so much about the inner workings of the machinery and processes that go into producing fabric and mass production of clothing.” Susan said her design chosen for fashion week reflected the ideas of missing something. “My Resene colour was called Suzie Q and my name being Susan gave me the idea to give [my outfit] a life-like persona.

Consultation on Wellington City Council’s land contribution to a planned development at Shelly Bay has now started. Council has invited public submissions on a proposal to sell and lease some of its land to Shelly Bay Limited, so a planned development of housing and public space could go ahead. Shelly Bay Limited was a joint venture between Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust and developers The Wellington Company. Shelly Bay Limited’s development included plans for a new neighbourhood, with 350 homes, green space, cafes, bars, shops and a 50-bed boutique hotel.

They received resource consent for the development in April. The proposal involved council selling a plot of land to Shelly Bay Limited for housing, and leasing a plot of land and two buildings on the waterfront for the development of housing and commercial/retail space. It is also proposed that council and Shelly Bay Limited shared the cost of the infrastructure improvements (including upgrading the council’s seawall and road) and the development of public space. A councillor working party has overseen the development of the consultation process and material. Working Party Chair Coun-
