Have Your Dress & Eat it Too

Three New Zealand fashion designers have teamed up with Kenwood to bring edible fashion to life. Trelise Cooper, Andrea Moore and twenty-seven names were given two weeks to design their Sweet Couture creations; once designed, each designer worked with Kenwood and Sweet Bites Cakes to transform their ideas into a reality.

The garments, crafted from icing and fondant, are on display in the Smith & Caughey’s Queen Street window from the 14th to the 28th of September. Vote for your favourite design at the Smith & Caughey’s Kenwood showroom, located on the second floor and you’ll go in the draw to win a Kenwood CHEF Sense and a $500 Smith & Caughey’s gift card.
