The Marr Factory is a staple in New Zealand's fashion calendar, notoriously preceding NZFW with a grungier, edgier, rebellious vibe.
With a week-long line-up of insanely strong labels with local origins, we spent the majority of our time ducking between the magic happening backstage and gawking, like the rest of the audience, at the runway.
Like previous years, 2015's showcase was set in Ponsonby's Golden Dawn; their friendly, knowledgeable, and cool bartenders the icing on the cake of what is always a damn good time.
First up in our visual reports: Karen Walker. You sure as hell know her name, and we're guessing you could identify her signature eyewear from any given line-up. Get familiar with what makes the label, the clothing, and the experience a success, through the medium of K-Dubs Marr Factory showcase, in the video above.
