Exquisite garments from decades of vintage couture have
attracted another sell-out crowd to an iD Dunedin Fashion
Week event tonight.
Australian Charlotte Smith has returned to Dunedin with 22
outfits from The Darnell Collection, modelled to 240 people
inside the Golden Centre Mall.
Her selection of luxury pieces fit within the theme Bold,
They originate from the United States, Hong Kong, France,
Australia, Hawaii and the United Kingdom.
The Darnell Collection, passed on to Charlotte from her
godmother Doris Darnell, now comprises more than 10,000
pieces and continues to grow.
Charlotte first came to iD in 2011 as the international guest
of the iD Dunedin Fashion Show and has since returned
annually to showcase parts of the collection.
The runway set-up in the Golden Centre Mall enables each
spectator a front row seat.
For the first time as part of the Darnell showcase Dunedin
singer/songwriter Kylie Price entertained the audience with
three songs at half-time.
