|Inside the Viaduct Events Centre, getting dressed up for New Zealand Fashion Week. One of the many bar areas (there's quite a few...)|
What will I be doing there? I'm taking part in the photography competition run by Samsung. This means I get access to the more non-public shows and so forth which will really be a new experience for me! Yesterday we were given a briefing at the venue, the Viaduct Events Centre by Moller Architects, and shown the photographer's pit. I've heard some, if not nasty, uncomfortable things about that spot in the catwalk (imagine a pack of photographers with all their bulky equipment jamming onto the small stand). You also have to be careful about getting in someone's shot as you'd become much less popular.
I'm sure the event will give me a new perspective on design (fashion, performance, events) as well as the waterfront itself. I'm very excited to be a part of it all! I'll try to blog throughout the week and hopefully I'll have some good pics.
