Fast ascent from Runway and another Standing Ovation

What a truly amazing evening

A-list celebrity called Tuesday’s Annah Stretton fashion week show, “Playfully cute” and rated it 10/10.

And that is how we’d also describe the second part of Annah Stretton’s show, the Celebrity Fashion Fundraiser. Models intermingled with Jammers to create an awesome spectacle. Simon Dallow, JamBassador extraordinaire, set the scene for a night to remember, seamlessly merging the Annah Stretton catwalk segment with the StarJam version.

Pastel colours, silks, bows and velvet voices

Jammers followed the professional models out onto the runway, looking stylishly feminine in Annah Stretton’s latest collection. There were skirts, sleeves, tights and plaid dresses. The twelve Jammers were beautiful, gorgeous and courageous.

In safe hands

Some of the Jammers were assisted down the runaway by three New Zealander’s netball stars, Kayla Cullen, Cat Latu and Bailey Meis and they each played their part in making the show memorable.

Dreamers anthem, Side by side, Green fluffy hats, and Amazing Grace

The audience was truly wowed when StarJam’s Velvet Vocals took to the centre of the catwalk to jam everybody with their songs, Dreamers anthem, Side by side, Green fluffy hats, and Amazing Grace. The standing ovation that followed, led a backstage TV reporter to comment that she’d never seen a standing ovation in seven years covering NZ Fashion week.So, that’s another amazing achievement for StarJam and our Jammers.






Not a dry eye in the house

If the emotion stirred from the Jammers courage and talent was not enough for the audience. Many tears were flowing when Jammer Olivia Shivas, burst into tears when awarded the well deserved honour of becoming a JamBassador.

Jambassador’s are someone who our Jammers look up to, and someone who we think has gone beyond the call to support our Jammers.

Our budding Journalist Olivia was lost for words and could only comment that her tears were ruining her make-up. Olivia we’re so proud of you and what you’ve achieved. You encapsulate what StarJam is all about – congratulations!

So, it was a fantastic end to day one for NZ Fashion week. Our thanks go once more to Annah Stretton and her team, to our sponsors Barfoot and Thompson, The Mad Butcher and Mainfrieight. And to all of you who bought a ticket to the show. We cannot hold events like this without your kind support. You made it an extremely special evening, we hope you enjoyed the show and above all that you were, “jammed!”
