It’s official, one of New Zealand’s most beloved menswear and suiting brands has introduced its first foray into womenswear — coming 34 years after it first launched, it’s more than worth the wait. W by Working Style debuted with a bang last Thursday night, with a spectacular showcase held at the Mercedes-Benz Auckland showroom in front of a crowd of 600 guests.
Showing a curated selection of 27 looks, the show demonstrated the variety within W by Working Style’s bespoke range, from more casual, effortless cotton and linen suit separates, to sumptuous wool suits, silk satin and velvet jackets — all impeccably tailored. The Director and Designer of the new W Collection is Sharon Orquieo, who has been with the Working Style brand for over 15 years, and her strong vision was integral when it came to creating a collection that stays true to its beginnings while adhering to the core design principles that make great womenswear.
“The Working Style brand and the W by Working Style collection is all about inclusiveness and the proud New Zealand tailoring heritage that these brands stand for,” she says.
Having been treated to this initial preview of the offering, we can’t wait to see what more is to come from this exciting new venture.
