Squealing Pig On... Next To The Catwalk

At Stolen Girlfriends Club AW17 NZFW16 Fashion Show

On Wednesday night, these cool cats Stolen Girlfriends Club presented their rock'n'roll swagger Spring Collection VIOLENCE TERROR CHAOS at a ruin, probably haunted the old First Scene building in Kingsland, Auckland.

As the official wine of the show and sponsor of Stolen Girlfriends Club, we were super proud to be a part of the night - serving our best yet new vintage Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir Rosé and Pinot Noir to some pretty awesome people the VIPs around the main catwalk.


The collection is inspired by memories of our misspent youth the grunge of an adolescent in the 90's - and came to life with an industrial soundtrack with a German feel, peppered with 80's electronic punk.

Hair was by Richard Kavanagh "inspired by underground youth culture and emerging desire". The hair for the girls had a lived in texture exactly almost as if she's slept in it, flipped it off her face and tucked it behind her ears.

Makeup was by Kiekie Stanners at M.A.C., and featured "next day beauty with slept in eyes and sweaty skin."

Yep, that's just how we roll.

The Collection

1,000 guests watched as the Stolen models slayed the catwalk walked through two levels of the old First Scene building, lit by sound activated lighting by Angus Muir Design.

Luxurious fabrics you could roll around on with clean, wearable silhouettes were amped up with hand drawn doodles clever detailing. The highlight print this season is a daffodil print worn with wardrobe essentials - leather and denim.

Leather jackets and chaps were transformed with artwork by artist Micheala Van Der Laan. These were complimented by the additions of an oversized western shirt in lambskin, the wing dress, a pencil skirt, and the patent leather 501-style jeans.

We Rock Belong Together

Just like us, Stolen Girlfriends Club have a great sense of humour - they're super weird a bit different, have a rebellious side and are inspired by everything from punk romanticism, party crashers to post-apocalyptic surfers. It's pretty much like looking in a mirror.

They like our wine too, which is a prerequisite always nice.
