A HIGH-END fashion show is being
planned this month to shake up
Aucklanders and raise money for
earthquake victims in Christchurch.
Fashionista Jackson Taylor and
choreographer Faisal Khatib have
put their heads together to create
Fashion for Quake -- a stylish evening
of fundraising and fun.
I m in the fashion world and I ve
got friends in Christchurch who have
been affected by the quake, Mr Tay-
I thought: I d love to get a cool
collection of designers together for a
charity event . I wanted to do it for a
good cause. So I hit up the designers.
I wanted to be selective to make sure
I had the best and it s coming along
Mr Taylor is excited about the
event and says the sky s the limit for

designers including the likes of
Annah Stretton, Frank Casey,
Michelle Yvette, Andrea Moore,
Brave and Augustine International.
There will be around 20 looks from
each designer, Mr Taylor says. The
ticket proceeds will go to the Sal-

Our High St store was closed for
three weeks and our Merivale store
was open the next day but it had to be
evacuated and closed each time there
was an aftershock. It s been quite a
huge thing for us.
The staff were very shaky. What
affected everyone was the continuous
aftershocks. It was like a war zone.
She says her parents are all right
but the quakes have left their mark.
It s very eerie. I know people who
slept under their dining room table.
Mrs Moore also says many
insurance companies have yet to pay
out so the money is sorely needed by
Fashion is quite frivolous but it
can be useful.
Fashion for Quake takes place at
The Bluestone Room in the city on
November 30 from 7.30pm. Tickets
are $45 for gold seated, $35 for silver
seated and $25 for general admission
standing. Visit www.iticket.co.nz for
