Elegant, flirty and summer-ready; say hello to Mrs. Pinto! After much anticipation since seeing this collection at NZFW, I'm happy to say that Amber Whitecliffe's latest summer range was officially launched last Thursday night. I was lucky enough to be able to attend her blogger's event at her Parnell boutique (despite having an exam the next day!) and got the chance to take a first look at the new season pieces.

Inspired by Amber's inherited Portuguese culture after getting married earlier this year, the collection features a stunning colour palette of red, white and hints of gold. The fun floral prints and beautiful fabrics reflect the designers signature style, and includes a gorgeous watercolour print that Amber designed herself.

The launch itself was a fun evening filled with eating too many cupcakes & strawberries, catching up/meeting the other bloggers, gushing over Amber's designs, and an insightful talk from Evelyn Ebrey of Just So Pretty, who shared her experiences as a fashion journalist. Needless to say, I was one of the last people to leave the premises (although that may been partly because I didn't want to go home and face my uni notes).

Read on to see more photos from the night, including a few of my favourite pieces.
