A love letter to New Zealand fashion. As the past few months have been a challenging time for all in many ways, this is especially prevalent for business owners along with the fashion and creative industries alike. As Australia and New Zealand begin to ease restrictions, this means many are now able to get back to creating and collaborating. To celebrate this positive step forward, we wanted to shine a light on our friends and neighbours in New Zealand fashion as part of an ongoing series shot by Auckland based photographer and creative Robert Tennent.
Last but certainly not least in our incredible series is Georgia Currie from Georgia Alice. Another RUSSH fan favourite over the years, a Georgia Alice piece is a timeless one. Simple, luxurious ready-to-wear staples from cult worthy blazers, form fitting slip dresses, classic trousers, 90s inspired bodices, mini party dresses and more. Pared back, stripped down designs for a considered edit for every woman’s wardrobe. See our full shoot and interview with Georgia Currie below.
