New Zealand songstress Brooke Fraser has helped raise $1800 for Starship Children Hospital's Newborn Intensive Care Unit.
Brooke partnered with Juliette Hogan, Zambesi, and Stolen Girlfriends Club to create three gorgeous, bespoke gowns that she wore at the shows on her New Zealand tour in June. The outfits that were custom-designed for Brooke, who was pregnant.
New Zealand’s premier designers jumped at the chance to lend their talent to such a great cause, all of them proud supporters of the Starship Foundation. Proceeds from the sale of the dresses will go directly to provide much needed equipment for the neonatal unit which admits approximately 1000 babies every year.
Juliette Hogan designed a stunning, black peony lace full-length gown for Brooke to wear at her Christchurch show, perfectly balancing a feminine aesthetic with Brooke’s star style. Brooke has worn Juliette Hogan brand for years and the team behind the iconic brand knew exactly the kind of outfit they would create for this collaboration.
“When Brooke approached us to design a bespoke piece for her Brutal Romance Tour to then be auctioned off for Starship Hospital, it was a no brainer for us to get on board. It is a wonderful cause.”
The dress sold for $515.
Stolen Girlfriend’s Club was also chosen by Brooke for this project, who created a gorgeous form-fitting frock for Brooke to wear at the Wellington show.
“We wanted to compliment Brooke’s gorgeous figure with the fitted mesh shape while also showing off her new belly. The gem-stone print is part of our upcoming Resort 15 collection. We think Brooke’s a bit of a gem so it’s a no-brainer.”
The dress sold for $705.
The final dress that was created was a revisioning of one of Zambesi’s runway looks from their autumn/winter collection that was created for Brooke for her Auckland concert.
“The choice was inspired by both Brooke and the vision of her performing in The Holy Trinity. We thought she looked amazing!”
The dress sold for $565.
