Ready, Set, Runway: With Working Style

With only days to go until New Zealand Fashion Week, we stopped by some of the Bridal Industry's elite to get word on what we'll see next.

    Working Style are wedding suit specialists who we have the know-how and the expertise to take the stress away entirely.

    Founder of Working Style, Chris Dobbs, says that suiting attire should reflect the wedding venue (see below). We stopped by to get some insight to what we'll see on the runway at this year's New Zealand Weddings Show at Fashion Week, and beyond...

    New Zealand Weddings: Can you give is a sentence about what we’ll see on the runway this year from Working Style?
    Chris: Softly tailored pieces used in unexpectedly ideal ways for the modern antipodean wedding, including unique combinations of black tie day wear, formal cottons or linens and casual woolen suits.

    What details do you think will be big in grooms' attire in 2018, and beyond?
    Personalisation continues to be a key area for men wanting to look their best on their wedding day. Tailor-made garments with unique cloths chosen by you complete with details such as personal embroidery will continue to set the benchmark for men’s wedding attire.

    What detail would you love to see make a comeback?
    We’re loving making suits for a few of our customers with large lapels, higher waist trousers, pleats and overall relaxed silhouettes...

    What kind of feeling do you want to evoke on the runway this year?

    What is one tip you can share about making decisions on suiting?
    Select your outfit based off what looks right for the venue (or vice versa). An evening ceremony carries a different level of formality to a day wedding at the beach. Everything will appear more appropriately styled and make sense.
