Dark Room Takeover Shines Light from Designer Labels

The Children of Vision “Dark Room Sale” in partnership with Jimmy D and General Cucumber kicked off in Auckland on Friday with the very fashionable clamouring for delicious goodies from international and local labels. Hannah McArdle got down there with Tux Hika of Designer Direction to rifle through the racks and take in the new look for the Children of Vision Store.
