Overnight my fondness of the New Zealand fashion scene may have bloomed from a little crush into a full-fledged romance thanks to Emma over at
. While she picks and chooses heaps of international trends to showcase on her blog, she's also got a stash of New Zealand designers up her sleeve that she sprinkles in throughout the week. Of course a girls got to represent, right?
Now quickly, a bit about my lusting. You see it all started last Winter with my admiration of the long regal gowns by
, and the fact she caters to both hemispheres each season. How considerate! Now just a few months later, Winter has passed and I'm fawning over the Spring 10/11 collection, Twelve, from
. Have a look yourself, and I'm sure you'll agree...
From pin tucks to pleats, each piece seems so delicate and touched with the detailed beauty I find in so many vintage pieces.
on top of that, each piece seems made for my closet!
I'm also loving the concept of the class portrait they did at Emma's suggestion. Isn't it perfectly fitting? If you take a look at Guy Coombes'

he took for the project, equally stunning I might add.
Now if you're in the mood for a little more New Zealand eye candy, be sure to check out
latest collection, along with
collection of shapely sunnies. And in case you haven't seen enough,
has a beautifully shot video on their site that is completely worth the watch.
