Wendy Hill at Fashion Week

Wendy Hill Cosmetics was proud to be involved with one of the up and coming New Zealand designers taking part in this year’s NZ Fashion Week.

We were happy to sponsor MALLO Couture, a brand created by Philippines-born New Zealander, Dwayne Mallo.

Mallo Couture's collection celebrated the label's New Zealand Fashion Week debut, and was well received by the audience, with some commentators picking it as one of the highlights of Fashion Week 2019.

Mallo says the collection was inspired and influenced by the spring season of New Zealand and by his being born in the Philippines.

"I incorporate some of my Filipino culture into my designs, so the collection was a fusion of two cultures," he said. “I create clothes that focus on classical elegance, that are comfortable to wear, and flattering to the body.”

Fashion Week commentators praised the collection for its bright and opulent colour palette combined with its hint of traditional Filipino dress, which not only added an exotic touch to the look but was also an excellent showcase of the skilful craftsmanship evident across the collection
