Aside from finding myself distracted in the Karen Walker store, I also had the pleasure of meeting with the girls at Saben a well known NZ bag and accessories brand who wanted to chat to me about my work and thoughts on fashion. I happily had a flick through the next season lookbook and am excited about a few pieces coming out soon! Before I left they very kindly gifted me with these two colourful braided chain necklaces, I love how bright they are and have had much fun layering them up over chunky winter knits.

Wednesday was also a day of promotion for Darkness of Noon as it was launching at The Department Store the following night. I was excited to head down to Kiwi FM for a chat with the lovely Charlotte Ryan who has interviewed me before and is always the sunniest person to be interviewed by. Whenever in a studio doing radio recordings I always feel very aware of the fact that thousands of people are going to be listening and I feel a little nervous about what to talk about, but hanging out with Charlotte is like chatting with a pal, so luckily for me all went well that morning.
The afternoon involved further press meetings about the book launch, after which I welcomed a beer and a seat at the Stolen Girlfriends Club Spring 2013 collection and Mini Paceman launch. Here are some of my favourite pieces from the collection, I'm looking forward to wearing their florals and bright leopard prints in Spring and as an illustrator I am particularly jealous of their new mini complete with personalised print paint job!
