With the unfortunate cancellation of NZFW due to COVID-19, the New Zealand fashion and beauty industry has been left to scramble. For designers, sponsors, buyers, media, makeup artists and more, Fashion Week was set to be a milestone event and include a retrospective show looking at the past 20 years of design in New Zealand.
However, local designer Jakob Carter hastaken this as an opportunity to pivot his strategy and showcase an in-season collection – Season 2 by Jakob Carter.
Available exclusively online, Season 2 by Jakob Carter is unique and sleek, edgy but fashionable.
“I’ve been working on this collection for over a year now and it is inspired by all the strong and empowering women in my life. I can’t wait to share my vision with the world,” Carter noted.
Each piece in the collection is edgy with bold fabrics and designed to make a statement.
There’s always a sense of celebration whenever Carter sees someone wearing his clothing, and customers can be rest assured knowing that he only makes limited runs of each item.
Carter is thrilled that he can finally share his collection with everyone but remains thankful to the team NZFW for all their ongoing support.
“I am so excited to be launching our long-awaited Season 2 high fashion collection and want to express a huge thank you to Pieter and the NZFW team for their hard work and dedication towards trying to make this year’s show happen.”
When asked about the future, Carter notes that he is currently working on one of his biggest projects yet, with one of New Zealand and Australia’s biggest icons, a launch set for January 2022. Carter also looks forward to NZFW 2022, where he will be showcasing Season 3.
