FrontRowDiary + RUMI NEELY for NZ Fashion Week!!!! And me too!!

MAJOR news you guys. So we all know and love (and idolise) the divine Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast...

Well she's coming to New Zealand! Yes! She'll be working with the Front Row Diary Team - editor (and all round awesome) Anna Fitzpatrick and me (!). I'm pretty much hyperventilating right now, I've been inspired by Neely for so long - can't actually believe I'll be meeting (and working with!) her.

“The one thing I love about my job is being able to share my passions with such a global audience, and recently that has included some brilliant New Zealand designers. I can’t wait to come to New Zealand as part of the FrontRowDiary team and see what the week produces.”

I literally NEED the left hand jumper.
So you know where I could order one online?

Emma said...

so excited. couldnt have dreamed a better fashion week experience.

Re: Danny Roberts - you've met her right? she sounds super nice/cool. ps i love the illustration you did of 4th&Bleeker

re: Anonymous - dude you read my mind. will have paid off all my current laybys by then (Claude Maus leather skinnies, Juliette Hogan floor length skirt, Karen Walker pleat pants, wedge ankle boots) so will def be working those! can't wait for outfit planning. although aucklands weather is frustratingly inconsistent.

re: Behind the box - the jumper is Alexander Wang's "Oversized metallic sweater dress" from spring 09, it was on net-a-porter but is sold out now - but if I was you i'd check ebay religiously. I adore that jumper - my favorite of all time :(

thanks for the lovely comments everyone!
will keep you posted

Marcella said...

Oh my goodness, how ridicuously exciting!! That is such wonderful news and I am insanely envious :)

It would have been neat to meet and talk to you at the retail awards! I was wondering if you were there but wasn't sure what you looked like, and my vision is rather atrotious as well. Did you have a fun night? I had to leave relativly early to do work but heard that things got somewhat more... entertaining as the night wore on?
