I have always avoided wireless underwear. Being a 10D I have always felt that it is something that I could never pull off. And then HER Apparel came along and opened up a world of wireless opportunity for woman of all sizes (if you don't believe me check out #HERGIRLCLUB on instagram and see for yourself). So much excitement. The fact that each intimate is made to order just blows my mind. So, on Day 2 of NZFW, when the lovely ladies behind HER Apparel sent their AW '16 collection down the runway in a flurry of corals, yellows and sass, my only thoughts were: Can I become a HER Girl? Where do I sign up? The day after the show, I sat down with the babes behind the brand, Rebecca Rasool and Bethany Payne, to hear every single detail about their fashion week debut.
(Oh and a huge thanks to Rebecca and Bethany for all of the images - Care of their photographers Clara Pafundi, Sophia Stace and Evangeline Davis)
R - We woke up at around 7am and got our hair and make-up done by my brother-in-law’s girlfriend Tallulah. We didn’t really feel nervous. It felt like we were waking up for a normal day!
B - I could hardly sleep the night before, not because I was nervous but because there was more to think about than just the show. It was really important to ensure that we connected through social media throughout the day and use the show to an advantage in that way. That’s one of the hardest parts - Making sure that we network with everyone!
R - So one of the very first things that we did was update all of our social media channels.
