Queenstown Fair 2017 Recap

Snowy mountains, fashion, mulled wine, helicopters, luxury sports cars, live music, and a beautiful afternoon of inspiration and creativity.

On July 15th Wild Hearts hit Queenstown with a Wedding Fair and Runway Show hosted at the beautiful Winehouse in Gibbston Valley.

Wild Hearts Queenstown was full of good vibes, warm fires and oh so much talent! It was incredible to see the passion and dedication these vendors, designers and models had – arriving in the early hours on the Saturday to set up in -7 degree weather. Then putting on one show stopper day, in New Zealand’s ultimate wedding destination.

Once again our friends at Together Journal hosted the VIP Haven, for all of our VIP guests who were treated to a Mount Michael Wines Pinot Rosé, Chambord cocktail, a divine selection of tapas from the Winehouse, beauty demonstrations by Bobbi Brown and Hair styling from Pure Hair Studio.

For our Queenstown Runway Show we wanted to create something that was very unique, luxe and adventurous. We set up an outdoor runway, complete with luxe black rugs, with the mountains in the backdrop. With lovely friends from Hello May Magazine joining the incredible line up of inspiration. It was such a dreamy winter set up.

We can not wait to see you next year Queenstown!
Wild Hearts will be returning in 2018 at the Winehouse on Saturday 15th of September.

    Anya Ostapenko is the unrelenting force and face behind the contemporary Australian bridal label, L'eto Bridal. L'eto has one central focus when it comes to reshaping the bridal world; to make love cool again.

    Cool the L'eto bride is, with careful and considered play between textures, silk weights and design- there is something for everyone. Each collection is an ode to a specific love for Anya; country, era and aesthetic- all collections speak of a time and style that Anya believes should exist in the bridal world. The result? L'eto brides have been adorning aisles (or catwalks) everywhere with these incredible new bridal gowns.

    Self-taught in every way, Anya Ostapenko is a name that the fashion and bridal world alike need to look out for, because as much as she has transformed the world of bridal, she is only getting started.

    Beks AndersonChaos & Harmony

    Over 10 years ago, Chaos & Harmony’s Creative Director and Founder, Beks Anderson and her husband sold everything they owned and moved to Italy so Beks could learn to design shoes at the Instituo Europeo di Design in Rome. She was taught by tutors who’d worked at Valentino and Fendi, among others, and learned how to infuse her lifelong love of texture, materials and leathers into comfortable, high-quality, hand-made shoes.

    Twelve months later they returned to Mount Maunganui and created Chaos & Harmony - a market-leading, boutique shoe company. The name Chaos & Harmony reflects our love of textures to create depth – it brings about a curious contradiction. It also subtly sums up a woman’s world!
