This is an auction for BERKAHN: FASHION DESIGNER by Kevin Berkahn, with Maggie Blake.

“For almost forty years the fashion designs of Kevin Berkahn have been seen, admired and imitated on catwalks in New Zealand and overseas. A true creative genius, Berkahn has dressed generations of women and been an inspiration to the new wave of fashion designers who have risen to prominence in recent times. But many years earlier, Berkahn’s clothes were being worn in London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Sydney, and today his design skills are in greater demand than ever. BERKAHN: FASHION DESIGNER trace Berkahn’s meteoric rise to prominence, leaving the family farm in Dannevirke to become a successful designer in Auckland with his own salon while still in his twenties. He expanded his business into Australia, but a disastrous (yet in retrospect hilarious) episode in Double Bay, Sydney, burnt his fingers badly. It was not to be the first time he almost lost everything, but determination and sheer talent always say Berkahn back on his feet. In the 1980s his boutiques boomed, and he organised glittering shows in cities from Bangkok to Hollywood. Further disaster followed, but today Berkahn is again at the top of his field, and expanding into other areas. Recently he became the first New Zealand designer to develop his own range of fragrances.”
