Newtown Festival

The New­town Fest­iv­al Street Fair is a force to be reckoned with each year in Wel­ling­ton, draw­ing in over 75,000 people. Fish­Head scoured the streets in search of those dressed to stand out from the crowd!

Name: Jayne Mul­ligan | Age: 23 | Occu­pa­tion: Book­seller at Vic Books | Style icons: “Every­day people I see around uni and Wel­ling­ton” | Jayne looked 1950s cool in an out­fit inspired by her sis­ter. Fish­Head espe­cially loved her head scarf, pinched from her mum, and the way she paired old and new with an op-shop skirt, Viet­namese sunglasses, san­dals from Num­ber One Shoes and stun­ning sil­ver jew­ellery from Mead­ow­lark and Wal­ter Crow.

Name: Char­lotte Gra­ham | Age: 28 | Occu­pa­tion: Journ­al­ist | Style icons: “Patti Smith” | Char­lotte caught the eye of Fish­Head imme­di­ately in her stand-out dress from Ruby, paired with a del­ic­ate bralette from Lonely to cre­ate an ultra-fem­in­ine look. Chunky white san­dals from Han­nahs add a sense of fun to the out­fit, fin­ished off per­fectly with Kar­en Walk­er sunglasses we’re still coveting!

Name: Zane Walk­er (left) and Perry Hyde (right) | Age: 21 and 20 | Occu­pa­tion: Stu­dents | Style icons: “Johnny Depp, Rus­sell Brand and hip­pies” | Wel­ling­ton friends Zane and Perry proved two really can be bet­ter than one with their super-laid-back styles. Both rocked shirts pinched from their sib­lings, op-shop steals and bespoke cop­per neck­laces craf­ted by Perry him­self. And let’s not for­get those match­ing ukuleles… Play us a tune would you?

Name: Matey­us Cur­ran | Age: 30 | Occu­pa­tion: Indus­tri­al design­er | Style icons: “Cul­ture and his­tory” | Fish­Head imme­di­ately fell in love with Mateyus’s thor­oughly put-togeth­er style. From the op-shop scarf and waist­coat to the Empori­um sunglasses and Mis­chief boots, the gypsy vibe of this look was every bit as cool as Johnny Depp in Chocol­at. Just take a look at those beau­ti­ful neck­laces from Bali and Mexico!
