22 Tuesday November 1 2016 Fashion SELWYN TIMES Kaftan returns for summer • By Dan Ahwa FOR THOSE sitting on the fence over the kaftan, several designers have picked it up and run with it for summer, delivering versatile styles. Beautiful linens and crisp cotton kaftans provide a fresh take on volume for summer, appropriate for not only the beach but, when thrown over a pair of jeans and sandals, the perfect blueprint for easy, laissez-faire dressing. The play on proportion extends to the multitude of oversized shirt dresses, slouchy trans-seasonal knitwear and billowing palazzostyle pants. An oversized light knit dress, for example, is transformed from cosy to terrific with the addition of slingback heels and a pair of statement earrings for formal occasions. Other accessories that enhance voluminous separates include Miss Crabb’s irreverent shoe collaboration with Mi Piaci, arriving in stores in the next few weeks, including a pink patent leather peep-toe mule (also available in red) – an easy way to balance out the bulk and add a sense of occasion to otherwise casual pieces. SUMMER CHIC: Sit pretty in this Knuefermann dress, Royal Republiq loafers and Juliette Hogan sunglasses. Lincoln model off • By Annabelle Dick NEW YORK Fashion Week is one of the most prestigious fashion events in the world, showcasing high-profile designers and exclusive models – and now Lincoln’s Jaime Spencer will get to walk amongst them. Miss Spencer, 19, is one of six New Zealand and Australian models who have been hand-picked through the Ozlink fashion programme to walk in several NYFW shows in February. “We’re walking for international designers with international models and it’s such a massive opportunity,” she said. “I don’t even know how to describe it – it’s still sinking in a wee bit. I still cry every time I speak about it.” Miss Spencer will spend 10 days in New York taking part in the major international Amit Singh Chauhan show, two boutique shows and two realway shows. She will also partake in a city and studio photo shoot with a professional fashion photographer. “Having this work in my portfolio will look really good. This could literally kick start a whole career and that’s the best part about it,” she said. Miss Spencer has been modelling for three years after trying a modelling course with Portfolio. Now with NZ Models & Talent, she credits owner Kelly Morrison with helping her get the NYFW opportunity. Standing at the shorter end of the modelling spectrum at 1.73m, she said her height has been an issue. “I’m classed as a petite model, but I’ll still get the chance to strut my stuff and show them what I’m worth and that I can do this,” she said. Miss Spencer is studying towards a Bachelor of Criminal Justice at Canterbury University. The Lincoln local is a sporty, rural girl who admits she didn’t see herself getting this far. “It’s quite funny – a small country girl getting such a big opportunity,” she said. She hopes to get scouted while overseas and combine her love of modelling with a career in criminal justice. “Modelling has always been that dream that every girl has had but never really follows through on. I wouldn’t mind being the next Gigi Hadid with a criminal law degree,” she said. There’s still some work to do to get to the United States as she needs sponsorship for the expensive trip.
