Sunglass Hut previews Georgia May Jagger; Design Cartel opens in Wellington; Stella Enting exhibits again

Sunglass Hut has sent through some behind-the-scenes photographs of Georgia May Jagger modelling for the retailer’s latest campaign. The daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, 20-year-old Jagger was announced as the ambassador for the brand in September.
Wellingtonians, meanwhile, need to head to the Dukes’ Arcade on the corner of Willis and Dixon Streets (across from Perrett’s Corner), where the very entrepreneurial Abigail Moir of Miss Abigail has opened up a new store, Design Cartel. It retails not only Miss Abigail but other local New Zealand designers: Love Hotel, Lisa Doherty, Artery, Desiree Clothing, Millicent, Miss Philly, White Rabbit, Danielle Designs, Black Agnes, Jinx in the Sky, Twelve Jewellery, Firecracker Studio, A Cake of Soap, Steph O’Shea, Becca O’Shea, and others.
We’ve taken a quick look today on Moir’s first day in store and we’re impressed by what she has to offer. The store is neatly decorated, everything is easy to find, and the 16-plus labels work together very well. If you’re looking for the up-and-coming labels for an individual style, Design Cartel is one of the places to go.
Local artist Stella Enting, whom we covered at her first exhibition, is back at Farsite Gallery at 183 Jackson Street (down the alley near the clock tower). Naturally Expressed sees the artist explore more media, using different textures in her canvases, and developing her style further. For those who loved Enting’s use of colour (as we do), she continues the theme, but she also explores more plant life, fire and natural scenes.
The Jackson Street Programmeâ€™s Robert Hutton introduced Enting at the launch of her exhibition on Friday, as part of Hutt Valley Community Art.

Finally, William Shatner has launched his new Iphone app, containing sayings from the Canadian actor. ‘You can have the fun of communicating your words with my voice,’ says the actor, who has made a name lampooning himself in his post-Star Trek years.
