A few weeks ago it was New Zealand Fashion Week and although I didn't go (read my whinge in a previous post) I was involved in helping get someone else there which was pretty cool!

Merdian Mall held a street style competition called, The Dunedin Look in which I photographed 50 stylish looking locals in and around the mall for a week. The public got to vote for the winner, who recieved a trip for two to New Zealand Fashion Weekend, $1000 mall voucher and a bunch of other awesome prizes.

When the entries were whittled down to the top three, the mall's marketing manager and I choose our fave, before some fashion week officials selected their's and in the end we all agreed that Lana Gutry in her gorgeous Trelise Cooper coat should win! I caught up with Lana and we went shopping with her voucher.

Well 'we' didn't go shopping, she did and I shopped vicariously through her. I have to say it was almost as enjoyable as window shopping for myself, which is really the only shopping I get to do these days.
