Wānaka is no sleepy town when it comes to being on trend with the latest fashion. Thanks to the sharp looking folks at 47 Frocks, you can wander the lakeside dressed to impress with the latest threads and accessories from New Zealand designers. 

An effortlessly cool space, the focus is ensuring visitors have fun choosing some of the luxe items to take home. With a who’s who of NZ designers to browse, beauty products and handbags mean the store really does have something for every fashion lover. 47 Frocks is beautifully curated with tidy piles of jeans, neat hangers of dresses and tabletops carefully laid out with perfumes, candles and bright pairs of shoes. Big old mirrors lean up against the walls, and the generous dressing rooms allow you plenty of breathing space to decide on your next purchase.

With a crisp white layout with high wooden ceilings and floor length windows facing out to the street, 47 Frocks is an aesthetically pleasing spot to spend an afternoon picking through the various bits of beauty on offer. The staff are fun and smiley and attentive without being overwhelming. Perfectly styled themselves, it’s hard not to be inspired to try wearing something with a little more flair. Nom*d to Yu Mei handbags to Sans Ceuticals, means it’s possible to spend all your pocket money here at once, and, with an emphasis on quality, they’re items you’ll enjoy time and time again.
