Y’all should already know that I’m OBSESSED with New Zealand/New Zealand Fashion Week. In summary, the week before the perpetual shitshow that was NYFW, I was flown out to the gorgeousest city in the world aka Auckland to attend and cover the criminally underrated NZFW. (#SOBLESSED) I went to four shows at NYFW — and, if my math serves me right, 23 shows (not including group shows/presentations) in NZ. That must mean something, right? Below 14th Street friendly designers include Stolen Girlfriends Club, Zambesi, Salasai, NYNE, Coop by Trelise Cooper, Jimmy D, Twenty-Seven Names, etc. So open another credit card/check all of those out, right now. Shout out to the 31507935-star hotel, Sofitel, where I was treated like a queen. I actually ate complimentary desserts and washed down the tiramisu with champagne while taking a bubble bath, but I unfortunately did not have a cute kiwi boy to take a picture of that magical moment. I also unfortunately did not get a tour of Xena: Warrior Princess filming locations, but I was too busy being a bonafide fashionista. *Flips hair* Anyway, a picture says a thousand words or something, so here is my lil’ cute photo diary for y’all, brought to you by very glamorous disposable cameras. I’m so ‘96. <3 Til next time, New Zealand. — ALEX CATARINELLA
