About a year ago, internationally renowned fashion blogger Garance Dore’s travels suddenly stopped.
Nothing unusual about that, except the French-born and usually US-based writer happened to be in New Zealand at the time.
Garance is a photographer, illustrator and author, who’s worked with everyone who is anyone in the fashion world. The New York Times once described her as the "guardian of all style".
She’s loved her new pace of life here so much that she’s stayed. She's currently out of the country so will do her Auckland Writers’ festival show by live stream - but she'll be coming back soon. She's been talking to Jack Tame.
