If there is one style this season that has me all befuddled, it's mum jeans. I mean, seriously, does anyone really look good in this high-waisted, acid-washed, straight-leg style that is not dissimilar to the actual jeans your mother wore in the 1980s and 1990s?
New Zealander photographer Derek Henderson rates his career shooting fashion, travel and art photography as mediocre, but a quick look at his credentials and it's plain to see he's being coy. He's carved out a name for himself shooting fashion campaigns and is in high demand around the globe. You may not recognise his face, but most Kiwis would have seen his recent work photographing Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for the March issue of US Vogue.

Seven years ago, when we featured Mickey Lin and Ra Thomson and their Christchurch-based eco-warrior label, MisteR, they were still glowing from the accolades received after showing at New Zealand Fashion Week 2011.

The dress! We're all still talking about the dress! How many thousands of pounds it cost, how it was kept secret (Kate Middleton's designer burnt all her drawings, and lied to her lace-makers), how it compared to other royal brides and above all, what it told us.
This week, Adele celebrates the royal newlyweds, Oprah makes a last-minute switch and Mindy Kaling works out her way.
New Zealand has a warm nostalgia for wool that gives us so many reasons to celebrate winter. Whether it's stocking up our winter wardrobe with the latest knitwear, or playing board games on a sheepskin rug with friends or family, wool connects us to a universally Kiwi story. This winter Westfield is celebrating nature's 'golden fleece' with Wool Week at Westfield St Lukes and Westfield Albany.
After surprising fashion followers around with world with a Givenchy bridal gown, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, stepped out in a stunning Stella McCartney dress for her wedding reception.
