The beginner's guide to Auckland fashion

The Wireless logo The Wireless 29/03/2017

It's easier than you think!


What do you think of when you think of Auckland? Is it the premium real estate? The spacious sprawl? The fabulous drainage?

No, it’s the fashion daahling.

As stylish a city as Paris or Milan, without the hideous inconvenience of being in Europe, Auckland is widely known to be New Zealand’s sartorial sanctuary. One can barely walk down the street for the swarms of trendsetters and tastemakers.

Now, of course, some of you may not live in Auckland and I can barely conceal my pity. Thankfully, however, that does not mean that you can’t get the look. In fact it is simple! As complex and captivating as the fashionable Aucklander may be, the building blocks are well within your grasp.

With Auckland’s Four Days of Fashion in the City festival underway as we speak, we’ve decided to make things a little bit easier to help you (yes, you!) become the Auckland fashonista of your dreams.
