Style on the Street

Style on the Street.

Editor’s note: A big welcome to our guest blogger, Amanda. When she’s not selling vintage clothing at the Fringe Market or designing something fabulous, she’s out taking snaps of Wellington’s street style. Take it away, Amanda…

Anniversary weekend came and went and with sun out, camera in hand, I took my people watching eyes to the streets of Wellington to see what I could find.

Cuba Street, the capital of fashion mishmash, reveals an up-to-the-minute demonstration of all things cool. Outfits are structured and accessorized on the fly, revealing designer garments and an appreciation for the gift of thrift - homage to the growing number of vintage stores that can be found in downtown Wellington.
