Iconic New Zealand footwear designer Kathryn Wilson showcased her Spring/Summer ’18 collection to a sold-out audience at the annual Clicquot in the Snow event in Queenstown.
Opening the runway show with a bang, singer and jewellery designer Boh Runga belted out a solo on a snare drum before the models (or should we say, marching band?) strutted down the catwalk showcasing Kathryn Wilson’s vibrant Spring/Summer ’18 collection.
Celebrating the brand’s 15 year anniversary, this is the seventh year Kathryn Wilson has launched her new season designs at the annual winter champagne festival, continuing her long-standing affiliation with Veuve Clicquot. But that’s not the only thing worth celebrating: The 2018 showcase also coincided with the 200th year since Madame Clicquot blended the world’s first rosé champagne. To celebrate, Kathryn has designed a special edition rosé pink belt and thus reintroduced her much loved belts to her coveted designs.

About the collection:
Kathryn’s SS18 designs have an especially international flavour this year: Mustard and fuchsia evoke a sense of the Forbidden City; pink velour and metallics speak to lush pool-side afternoons in Beverly Hills and festive florals and rhinestones have us bound for Cuba for Havana Carnival.
“Veuve Clicquot is all about innovation and creativity and celebrating women in business, so we are lucky to once again align the launch of our new collection with this renowned Veuve Clicquot event that is globally recognised. I am very proud of the association and hope to encourage more women as entrepreneurs to raise the bar and keep thinking BIG,” says Kathryn, who is in her eighth year as an ambassador for Veuve Clicquot.
