If you happen to find yourself in Wanaka make sure you stop in for some fashion therapy at 47 Frocks on Wanaka’s main street. Stocking a fantastic selection of New Zealand designers (Zambesi, NOM*D, Cybele, Juliette Hogan, Twenty-Seven Names, Lonely Hearts, Kathryn Wilson shoes and jewellery from the lads at Stolen Girlfriends Club), they’ll have you sorted for any pending nights out in this lakeside town.
Set up two years ago by two locals and self-confessed “shoppers-in-crime”, Anna Brewster and Bridget Legnavsky have forged a fashion institution with their small, but well curated boutique. It’s the perfect stop-off after a long indulgent lunch at any of the neighbouring restaurants.
