The dynamic duo - Manager Angela and her daughter, wearing unforgettable Annah Stretton
The great lady herself, Annah Stretton is all things; Renowned Author, Philanthropist, Key Note Speaker, Magazine Publisher, Entrepreneur and winner of multiple accolades, such as; New Zealand Order Of Merit for services to Fashion/Business/Community, Veuve Clicquot Businesswoman of the year, EY 2015 Social Entrepreneur of the year. Annah is highly driven in all areas and especially passionate about her work through the Stretton Foundation "RAW" for socially disadvantaged Women, which most notably is an excellent cause to be supporting in purchasing Annah Stretton clothing and merchandise!
Annah creates beautifully tailored pieces that really complement womanly curves, creating the real or imagined look of a 'small waist' like this stunning cascading jacket. Love how this jacket can be dressed up or down - in this case, paired with these edgy elevated flats. Annah stocks all the essential layering pieces to make the most of your Annah Stretton ensemble. Love this pink mesh tulle petticoat (pictured above), the finishing touch under a feminine Annah Stretton wrap dress.
Annah Stretton offers glamorous custom made, special event gowns. The Hayley Dress featured on the left and far right, is suitable for various special occasions and can be made in any colour way at the whim of it's purchaser. Note the cream variation would make a perfect wedding dress, the antique rose and berry variation, for the glamorous mother of the bride. For one-off occasions such as these, they really are at a reasonable price point (approx $1,200NZ). The bias cut elongates the form, enhancing the wearers assets. The 'Didion Rose' front and centre, is also available in various fabrics, and can conceal and reveal where necessary - spoilt for choice!
The wrap-around frocks are an enduring classic at Annah Stretton. Annah brings them out in feminine, refreshing and lush patterned variations each season. There is a dress for every woman, catering for the floral rockabilly fashionista to classic, monochromatic clean lines with minimalist design detail.
Kiwi women love their layering and belting to polish off the look. It's not for every woman, but see here how it can be effective. Subtle laying combinations work together well. A vibrant fabric made into a one of a kind coat can bring all the confidence you need to conquer your day, making you feel great from the outside in and inside and out.
Nothing like a great pair of heels to polish off a look. Love these beauties that match perfectly with any lady-like Annah Stretton outfit. They are found at Annah Stretton The Columbo, 363 Columbo Street, Sydenham, Christchurch.
