RUBY TAKAPUNA OPENS

RUBY held an opening party to celebrate opening the doors of their tenth store on Friday 15th July, at 8 Hurstmere Road in Takapuna. They’ve left the bare brick walls and original flooring, and softened them with feminine blush pink floor-length velvet curtains and a round ottoman seat, and fitted custom brass racks showcasing their stylish accessories. The Takapuna store opens with their Spring 2016 collection, ‘No Drama’. Managing Director, Christine Sharma said, “We are thrilled to be a part of the refreshed Takapuna community and look forward to seeing the area thrive”.

WE’AR CLOTHING

On Wednesday I headed into Ponsonby Road to the We’Ar Clothing store to view their Spring 2016 collection. If you’re interested in fashion that’s ethically-made using sustainable fabrics, you’ll love We’ar Clothing, which uses mostly organic fabrics, and supports small producers with fair practices. Nice work, @wearyoga.

MISTER MAKER 

So excited to be at the fantastic BBC TV kids show, Mister Maker & The Shapes, touring New Zealand, at Bruce Mason Theatre. Very interactive with song and dance compared to the craft TV show, in addition to some crafts. Lots of music and cheering. Have had to come home to go on their Facebook page and make crafts.

The Make It Happen initiative will help 6 young New Zealanders follow their career paths with help and mentoring and support and they can apply now.
