Taste. Shop. Play welcomes in Autumn for 2019
A fusion of fun, food and fashion took over centre court for the weekend as Westfield Riccarton celebrated the beginning of Autumn 2019 with Taste. Shop. Play.
Fashion Guru Stephanie Rumble held free workshops on what’s hot and on trend this winter and how to wear it well. Over four sessions, Stephanie enlightened crowds on how to put the trends together and how to wear colours to get the very best out of their style giving everyone the knowledge for a flattering, efficient wardrobe in just 30 minutes.
Stephanie also popped into a handful of stores across the weekend for our Stylist In Store sessions. Offering free expert hints and tips to help pull together the perfect wardrobe for the cooler seasons, the lucky participants that snatched up this opportunity came away with a bag of new fashion insights to tackle the changing seasons.
Taste buds were tantalised at our tasting station with customers enjoying everything from delectable cake tasting from Divine Cakes to authentically appetizing pizza samples from La Porchetta.
Our foodies also took to the floor with roaming tastings for people on the go, NZ Natural showed off their refreshing smoothies, while Pita Pit offered a deliciously nutritious option in their flat bread pitas.
Kids of all ages got amongst the fun of balloon twisting and face painting then headed over to our photo booth to snap up storm!
The PLAY highlight though was Monty’s Mini Golf! Players were treated to 9 free thrilling holes of fun that tested their putting skills and when they made it to the end, they were rewarded with a game of Mario Kart and a photo booth thanks to Timezone.
We had the best time celebrating the beginning of a new season with the Christchurch community, and can't wait to do it all again!
