Photo Diary: Fire Looks on & off the Runway at NZFW’s Fashion Night

Tāmaki Makaurau

— September 8, 2023 —

Our final dispatch from New Zealand Fashion Week: Kahuria comes fresh from the lens of photographer Suchita Jain, who was on the ground at Fashion Night to snap all the action on and off the runway. Meet her below and see her round-up of the massive night above.

Name: Suchita Jain
Star sign: Libra

Favourite look/collection you saw in the Fashion Night show?
Nineteen99! The screenprints and the live music at the runway were an absolute treat! I was so intrigued that I looked them up later to better understand their story and designs. I think, as a designer, you've really hit the mark if people remember you and want to know more about your garments.

And the best look/s on the show attendees?
My love Jess Molina! The sheer black dress was absolutely stunning and she is just such a gorgeous human!

Best thing about being a creative in Aotearoa?
Community vibes! Everyone is really welcoming and encouraging and will absolutely cheer you on! 

And the worst?
Not enough opportunities especially when it comes to fashion. We're a pretty young country so hopefully, with time, we establish our own identity and role in the industry on a global scale.

If Fashion Night were an emoji what would it be?

If the mood at Fashion Night were a song, what would it be?
'Don Dada' - Cakes da Killa x Proper Villains.
