iD 2017 – maaike

I had a quick catch up with Emilie Pullar and Abby van Schreven from MAAIKE before they head down to Dunedin for iD Fashion Week 2017…

What collection are you showing at iD Dunedin Fashion Week 2017?

KAME-ZA Winter 17 – the models will be thankful for our cosy knits on that open air catwalk!

You separately and together have quite a history with iD…

Abby studied in Dunedin and her final collection was in the ID emerging Designers. We showed our first ever collection at ID in 2011 so going back 13 collections later is going to be a very special moment for us.

What are your favourite things about showing at iD?

We love that it is in season so people can mostly go and buy what they see the next day – or it will be a short wait at least! The setting on the railway is so magic there is nothing else like it! Our least favourite thing is having to walk down the runway ourselves – it is so long!! But at least we have each other to chat to!

I know you love visiting Dunedin, what are your must see/must do’s when you are there?

Wherever we are in the country it’s all about food and Dunedin does a mean breakfast – the Good Oil and the Perc Cafe are our faves.
