Hello Frock Stars!
Wowzers! You may have heard......... There was a DASH of snow in Fairlie! It meant that we were trapped in our snowy paradise for a few days & alas that meant that we couldn't get to The Black Sheep Gallery to have entry packs available & to get the packs ordered online out in the post! Woe is me it was a looooong few days trapped in paradise & it held us up a touch BUT now we are freeeeeeeeeeee again (albeit only via a very bulky four wheel drive!)!
Entry packs have gone to clever folks in & around Fairlie and as far away as Bulls in the North & Christchurch & Timaru in the South! We are ever so excited as we see the packs trit-trotting off to start their adventure & get re-fashioned into something utterly fabulous!!!
We have also announced our judge for this season.......... ooooh shes a wee gem! Vanessa & her hubby Warren will be coming to Fairlie in August to take on the unenviable task of judging all your wonderful creations! You can read more about Vanessa & Warren & their business "Two Squirrels Vintage" on their website www.twosquirrelsvintage.com or check them out on Facebook - they are too fabulous & we are thrilled to bits that they have joined the fun of Frock Stars!
Our Facebook page is a great place for y'all to chit-chat & share your Frock Stars experience! Please feel free to post pics etc on the page - whether you're cookoo about creating an entry or get a kick out of being a spectator we love our Frock Stars followers & think it would be extra fun to have you sharing your thoughts or the process of your design with the world!
Don't forget to share the fun of Frock Stars with your friends!!
Be safe out there! And keep on frocking

I imagine that there is much cheering & waving of your finest sewing notions with the news that the 2013 Frock Stars NZ season is open for business! Here at HQ we are really proud of everything that has been going on behind the scenes & despite that fact that we weren't successful with our recent crowd-funding campaign we are going forth with gusto to make this the best season yet!
Yes its true, despite the fact that in earlier blogs we said there was going to be a big fancy live show this year - we have had to take a wee break from the "show" and now we are going to be showcasing the wonderfulness of Frock Stars online! We know that there will be some disappointed folks out there who will miss seeing the entries in a show BUT we are hoping to bring you some sort of theatre experience so fear not - we are still aiming to give you the chance to put your glad-rags on & pop out to get your Frock Stars fix! Our aim is to film all the entries in a location in Fairlie & then once we have done this HOPEFULLY we will be able to have viewings of this filming in the theatre in Fairlie............. And if you're really good we might even be able to have the winning entries on display at these viewings!! So keep checking back for more info on that little project! The beauty of moving our focus to an online event is that no matter where you are in NZ or the world you'll be able to enjoy Frock Stars 24-7! Now tell us that doesn't make you jump for joy!
The other change to this season is that now the dress selection is done (insert scarey music) BLIND! We have all the dresses tucked up in little brown paper bags & you must take "pot luck"! OOOOOH how much more interesting does that make things???? And there is to be no complaining about this change my darlings - this change came as a direct result of asking which y'all would prefer.... And it was practically shouted from the roof-tops "we want pot-luck selection"! And who are we to deny the people of what they want???
Anyway, thats enough babble from HQ - we hope you enjoy the new look of the website & as always we thank you for your support!! Look forward to keeping in touch with you over the coming weeks / months as Frock Stars NZ 2013 is set free into the world!!!
Take care my lovelies, have fun!

Well its so long summer & hello Autumn.................. While I admit to be filled with fear & dread at the prospect of winter I am always in love with Fairlie at this time of year when the pretty wee place looks even prettier with all its autumnal beauty!
We are currently full-steam ahead with planning a fabulous photo-shoot to help us promote Frock Stars to the world & to help in the beautifying of our website! Theres going to be a total change to the website soon & we are going to have a much stronger online focus for the event................ Stay tuned for the latest soon,
Cheerio for now,
Lu & the team

Hi Frock Stars!!!
Lu Taylor here (creator of Mackenzie Frock Stars) - I know you're positively buzzing with delight over the addition of a blog to our website...... I will endeavour to keep you up to date with all the news & exciting developments as they come to hand!
Sooooooooooo, as we go forth to conquer our 2013 season I'll take this opportunity to say "hi y'all" to followers old & new, young & old & everyone else in between! Its great to have you along for the ride...... I adore making Frock Stars happen & I'm especially excited this year to be able to introduce you to the new team!
The biggest news of 2013, which you may or may not have heard about is the fact that we are moving venue! To prevent the use of pistols at dawn to get your hot little hands on the very limited tickets we have had in the past we have decided to move from the Fairlie Community Theatre into the much BIGGER (you have to say that like its echoing to get the full effect of how I'm explaining this to you) Fairlie Community Stadium (insert ooohs & aaaaahs & other cheers of glee)! This is a very big (and don't tell anyone I told you but VERY scarey) move for us - hence the need for a bigger team so stay tuned over the next wee while for notes from our bright, shiney new team..................................
Okey dokey artichokey off to do more secret HQ work - fear not, there will be more revalations over the next short while.
Take care till next time - stay frocking fabulous folks! Luv LuLu x
PS - don't be afraid to share the secret that is Mackenzie Frock Stars with your family & friends & make sure you join us on Facebook!!!
