David Trubridge shows off artwork at World of Wearable Art celebrating Brancott Estate’s firsts

Visitors to the Brancott Estate World of Wearable Art award show on Sunday night got an extra treat, as furniture and lighting designer David Trubridge showed off a crowdsourced artwork constructed from bamboo plywood to commemorate the concept of “memorable firsts”.
   The theme ties in not only to the World of Wearable Art, but from Brancott Estate’s pioneering heritage as the first to establish a vineyard in New Zealand’s South Island in the 1970s.
   Trubridge and Brancott Estate asked the New Zealand public to submit photographs representing a memorable first. The 500-plus submissions—which the company says ranged from weddings and a first trip abroad to the first blossom of spring—were printed using a red-and-white duotone effect on to lightweight bamboo plywood sheets, which formed the “feathers” in Trubridge’s giant winged creation.
   The artwork was revealed in a performance that resembled a bird taking off on its maiden flight, one of the inspirations Trubridge had. ‘The first thing that jumped into my mind was the image of a young gannet sitting on the edge of the cliff. The first time it flies is the start of its journey all the way to Australia. It takes off and it doesn’t stop,’ he says. The wearer gradually flexed before revealing the full form and all the images with arms outstretched.
   Trubridge had the help of his family in creating the performance, including his wife, Linda, who is an artist, and his son, Sam, who is a member of the performing arts’ faculty at Massey University.
   The wings were held together with twine, and move with the wearer. It presented a new challenge to Trubridge, as he was not accustomed to creating something that would be worn.
   â€˜The process of creating this artwork has taken my team and I on an amazing creative journey and exploration that has led us to many creative firsts. It’s a project I’m very proud to have taken part in,’ says Trubridge.
   â€˜It’s not a single pendant, fixed light or object, it requires a degree of flexibility. Creating something that can transform from a cloak to a wing was a challenge as my work is usually a closed form. We had to have the ability for it to go from one shape to another and flex and move with the figure and that’s a whole new, exciting, pioneering first for us.’
   â€˜David has combined memorable firsts from the New Zealand public into a poetic, moving, kinetic piece of wearable art. The final creation truly embodies the pioneering spirit of Brancott Estate and WOW,’ says Brancott Estate’s chief winemaker, Patrick Materman.
   The artwork was shown at the Brancott Estate bar at the TSB Arena, and a filmed performance can be seen on the website at www.brancottestatewow.co.nz.

The Healthy Harlequin, masked culinary superheroine, débuts at Comic-Con

Lucire staff/11.02

Cosplay is very much part of the 2010s lexicon and culture, and what better way to get reminders about staying fit and healthy than to bring the message right to the media people use today?
   The Healthy Harlequin, who officially launched at Comic-Con at New York this week, will present short videos and images via Instagram and other media with recipes, tips and techniques about healthy eating.
   And she hasn’t just emerged on the scene. We’ve been following Healthy Harlequin, the new masked superheroine, over the many months leading up to this launch, and there’s an entire a comic book origin story to how she came into being.
   The Healthy Harlequin told Lucire that ‘putting on a mask can make you more bold, more outgoing,’ and her aim is ‘empowering people (mainly women) to get back in the kitchen … but to take health in their own hands.’
   She added in a release, ‘I’m fighting bad health’s lies with truth, body positivity, and tasty treats.’
   â€˜She’s like your smart, sassy older sister teaching you what’s up in the kitchen—she just happens to be a superhero,’ according to Faith Kates, owner of Next Models, which represents Healthy Harlequin.
   â€˜She’s not afraid to make a mess in the kitchen, and that’s fun to watch,’ says Scott Feldman, founder of chefs’ agency Two-Twelve Management, which represents Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio and The Kitchen’s Geoffrey Zakarian.
   What we love: she’s body-positive and unapologetically flawed so we can relate to her—and her advice is good for our health.
   Her lessons include how to remove the beans from a vanilla pod to making creamy nut milks, and each episode builds on the last.
   Follow HealthyHarlequin on Instagram, HarlequinHealth on Twitter, her Tumblr site (where you can watch her first episode), or visit the website at www.healthyharlequin.com.

Stradivarius, the fashion label rather than the violin brand, threw a party in Barcelona to launch its customer magazine, with Poppy Delevingne, Atlanta de Cadenet, Harley Viera-Newton and Úrsula Corberó playing host.
   The party, dubbed The Event Paper, was held in a modernist building near Gaudi’s Pavellons Güell (Güell Pavilions), with over 200 guests and Pepino Marino and Crawford DJing. De Cadenet and Viera-Newton took over from the DJs to get guests continuing on the dance floor.
   Photographer Bela Adler held a live shoot at the event, complementing guests using a photo booth. The event will feature in a future issue of Stradivarius’s new magazine.
   The four celebrities were chosen for their recognized roles as “it girls” with their own style. All wore items from the Stradivarius autumn–winter 2014–15 collection, which the company describes as having vintage and boho design elements. The brand is available at around 900 locations in 60 countries.

Kendall Jenner is following the mantra that if you’ve got it, flaunt it. The model stepped out in New York in a showcasing her incredibly toned body in a maroon coloured crop-top, maxi-skirt and Céline handbag, as she headed to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time fund-raiser.
   Jenner has walked for Chanel, Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana recently, boosting her catwalk cred.
   Meanwhile, Texan-born singer Selena Gomez was happy to channel the Kim Kardashian look at the première for Rudderless in Los Angeles, with a low-cut red silk dress by Christian Dior, drop earrings and black heels. The film, directed by William H. Macy, is released in the autumn.
   Kristen Stewart was snapped at the Apple store in New York’s Soho. The beauty wasn’t in store for the latest iPhone but to promote her upcoming film Camp X-Ray. Stewart, 24, in a leather dungaree-style dress, took questions from the audience. The actress could be a contender for an Oscar for her role in Still Alice, which Sony Pictures Classics is campaigning for.
   Finally, the Spanish men’s magazine Icon held its first awards’ ceremony at the Italian consulate in Madrid, where model and Valentino muse Nieves Álvarez (top) got her share of admirers in her bow tie and double-breasted dinner suit, and Carrera y Carrera Jardín de Rosas earrings in white gold and diamonds.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet will perform A Christmas Carol for its final season in 2014, in a version created for Northern Ballet in the UK. Northern Ballet’s master, Daniel de Andrade, is in New Zealand to stage the production.
   Based on the Charles Dickens story, the ballet is expected to surprise, with large sets, 650 costume elements, 75 characters and music by television composer Carl Davis that incorporates well known Christmas carols.
   De Andrade said in a release, ‘This evocative production has been a hit in the UK for over 20 years and such was its success that the BBC televised the production. The stunning sets and costumes transport audiences to Victorian England where Dickens’ classic characters are beautifully brought to life by talented dancers who not only dance but sing and act. It’s a narrative masterpiece and you couldn’t find a truer Christmas ballet.’
   Christopher Gable directs, with choreography by Massimo Moricone, production design by Lez Brotherston, and original lighting by Paul Pyant. Nigel Gaynor conducts.
   The ballet opens at the St James Theatre in Wellington on October 30 and tours the country, finishing in Takapuna on December 14. Notably, the company will perform at the newly restored Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch for the first time, on November 20.
   The dates are: Wellington, October 30 and 31, and November 1, 2, 6–8; Dunedin, November 15 and 16; Christchurch, November 20–2; Palmerston North, November 26; Napier, November 29 and 30; Auckland, December 3–7; and Takapuna, December 13 and 14. Full details can be found on the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s website.

Hawkes Bay designer Kate MacKenzie is the winner of the 2014 Brancott Estate Supreme WOW award, at the 26th World of Wearable Art Awards’ Show held in Wellington tonight.
   MacKenzie’s Poly Nation is an inventive design, telling the story of travel and made from leather and cardboard suitcases. The inspiration centred on the idea of ‘If suitcases could talk, they would carry stories of travel, culture and integration.’ It tells the story of people drawn to New Zealand with new ideas and beliefs.
   The design has netted MacKenzie NZ$30,000 in prizes.
   She also took out the Air New Zealand South Pacific section.
   MacKenzie had come third, along with Deidre Morgan, last year in the American Express Open section.
   Lynne Christiansen of San Francisco, Calif. took second place. She has entered seven times, and has won awards before, including the 2013 International Americas Award. Christiansen’s Gothic Habit was made from laser-etched felt and wood, constructed from 2,300 individually cut pieces to form a gothic cathedral. Christiansen also won the Open Section.
   In the individual categories, My Gradational Body by Zhujun Zhu of China won the Avant-Garde section; Fenced off by Luiz Fernando Sereno Penna of New Zealand won the children’s section.
   The Spark Creative Excellence section, with the Airborne theme this year, was won by Annkathrin Selthofer of Germany with her Waving Gorge design. Sebastian Denize of New Zealand won the Bizarre Bra section with Re-Decked, while Mark Dobson, also of New Zaland, won the Weta Costume and Film section (judged by Weta’s Sir Richard Taylor) with Sakana No Senshi.
   Emily Valentine Bullock of New Zealand took home the WOW Factor Award with her Sulphur Crested Frockatoo; the Shell Sustainability Award was won by Laura van Staveren of the Netherlands with Appearance. Shell also sponsored the Student Innovation Award, which was won by Tess Tavener Hanks of Australia with Baroque Living Room.
   The first-time entrant award was scooped by Ali Khan and Frida Khan of Qatar with Bling Warrior. Pop Cultural by Nicki van Asch of New Zealand won the New Zealand Design Award.
   The four Wellington International Awards, one being awarded to each geographic region, were won by Back to the Future: Chrome Queen, by Joanna Peacock of the UK, for Europe; Girl in Ribbons, by Julian Hartzog of the USA for the Americas; Odette by Lulan Huang of China for Asia; and Fenghuang (phoenix) by Svenja XX of Australia for Australia and the South Pacific.
   Wellington designers (Ross Hardie, Rachel Hardie, Hannah Goldblatt, Dylan Mulder, Kris Eriksen, Ian Loveridge, Liz Ritchie, Paula Rowan, Rénée Louie and Emily Valentine Bullock) netted the lion’s share of prizes this year, taking three section awards, four honourable mentions and one special award.
   Founder Dame Suzie Moncrieff, designer Vicky Taylor, and sculptor Jeff Thomson judged.
   Lucire fashion editor Sopheak Seng will have further thoughts from the designers as he files his report from awards’ night at WOW.

In front of a live global audience, and a full house at Sky City Theatre in Auckland, Rachel Millns of the Kapiti Coast was crowned Miss Universe New Zealand 2014 on Thursday night.

   Russell Dixon, back from performing lead roles on the British stage, Michelle Varte, and Lavina Williams also entertained the crowd at the Theatre.
   Miss Universe New Zealand executive director Nigel Godfrey announced the Miss New Zealand Consortium Ltd.’s intention to hold a Mrs New Zealand competition in 2015, and registrations of interest are being taken on the nextmissnz.com website.
   He and Lucy Gallaugher MCed the event, which was streamed at nextmissnz.com, livestream.com, virtualticket.co.nz and right here at Lucire. The grand final will air on Face TV in New Zealand as a delayed telecast.
   Both Yaemwannang and Holly Michelle Cassidy, Miss Universe New Zealand 2013, crowned Millns on stage at the conclusion of the show.
   Other awards were given to Alyx Pivac (Miss Congeniality), Monique Cooley (Miss Photogenic) and Brenna Watson-Paul (World Miss University representative for 2014, as judged by Alex Lee).
   Golden Gowns, Antique & Modern Jewellery, Jewels by Aqua, Jucy, and the Tourism Authority of Thailand were platinum sponsors for the evening.
   Millns will head off to Doral, Florida, in December, to participate in Miss Universe 2015 on January 18.

They’ll also be behind the scenes: on Thursday night, viewers will see a make-up look created by Napoleon Perdis’s head office in Sydney.
   The products Napoleon Perdis’s team, along with the Samala Robinson Academy, will use include Auto Pilot pre-foundation skin primer, Peep Show in Madame Beyond mascara, Stroke of Genius Liquid Cashmere foundation, the One concealer and the Camera Finish powder foundation for prep and base; the Camera Finish powder foundation, Matte Bronze fine powder for that beautiful sun-kissed look, Mosaic Flushing powder, Color Disc in Blushing Bride and Pale Rider or Chocoholic eye brow pencil for contour, blush and brows; and the Chocolate Genache Color Disc, Golden Peach loose eye dust, Mosaic Flushing powder, Color Disc in Skinny Dip, China Doll eyeliner, the One concealer in light, Mesmer-Eyes mascara, faux lashes in Zinnia, Mattastic lipstick in Audrey, Witty in Pink lip pencil and Clearly Glam lip lacquer for eyes and lips.

The best looks shouldn’t just be available to celebrities, they should be available to women from all around New Zealand.
   Tickets are available from Iticket, and, due to demand, Miss Universe New Zealand has opened up the dress rehearsal on Wednesday, with proceeds going to the Father Ray Foundation, which the finalists visited on their Thai retreat in August.
