You may have seen her on red carpet events across the country or even remember her from season one of The Bachelor! As comfortable on the red carpet as she is in her Tamaki College classroom, Alysha Brown puts our new Garage Capsule range to the test, fills us in on her must-have items for the season, what she would tell her teenage self and tells us her favourite fail-safe outfit! 

What are your favourite pieces from the Garage Capsule range?
I’m in love with the black bomber with the rose gold zip! Not only because I am obsessed with rose gold, this piece is timelessly on trend and I can dress it up or down depending where I am going.

How have you incorporated pieces into your own existing wardrobe?
I have been wearing the pleated black skirt with the Garage acid wash tee tied at the side. 

How would you describe your everyday look?
Casual and comfortable and a little bit tom boyish. Lots of denim, white and tan, drop crotch pants for every day teacher attire.

Who do you look to for fashion inspo? 
I’m inspired by the people on Instagram. I always make sure the people I am following have a similar body frame and height to my own. That way I know how a style or item would or could look on myself – Kimberly Crossman is a someone I follow as I love her style and we are the same height!

What’s your fail-sale go to outfit?
Jeans, tan boots, a black or what tee tied at the side and my Burberry scarf – it’s never let me down. 

What advice would you give your teenage self?
Find clothing that fits your style and pieces that you are comfortable in. Don’t be concerned with the size on the tag, buy what looks best on you!

How do you think The Warehouse customers will react to the new Garage Capsule Range?
I think they are going to love it. It’s affordable fashion that is so on trend. I think their friends will be asking them ‘where did you get that?’ and it’s going to go off! I love the blush and velvet pieces – they’re so versatile, on trend and so affordable!
