The most relaxed vibe of Urbis Designday was to be found at BoConcept, the Danish furniture showroom. It was the headquarters of George FM and where the radio station’s DJs were based and playing live for the day. There were amazing Scandinavian hot dogs on offer and cold drinks. And it was where Styled By You was putting together, with the help of the punters, a series of fashion shoots.
Styled By You was masterminded by Murray Bevan of Showroom 22 who engaged his fiancé and experienced stylist Imogene Pyne and stylist Duncan Lamont-Brown (AKA Thistle Brown) to put together outfits from the latest collections by Karen Walker, Kate Sylvester, Deadly Ponies and other New Zealand designers. Frances Carter was there to take the photos and hair and makeup artists helped complete the looks. Visitors to the showroom also got involved by helping to select the clothes for the models to wear. Other ticket holders took the opportunity to browse the homewares on display before kicking back on the BoConcept couches with a glass of fizz.
