FCM clients were treated to a pre-show event ahead of the Hailwood fashion show at this year’s new Zealand Fashion Week.

The event was held at the rebranded Grand Mercure Auckland’s new bar/venue, Custom Lane. Guests enjoyed specially designed  cocktails, canapés and oysters from a live shucking station.

Custom Lane is a new laneway that was launched following the multi-million dollar revamp of Accor Hotels’ Auckland hotel brand, launched as the grand Mercure Auckland. Custom Lane was inspired by the urban renaissance of city laneways, often seen in major cities like Melbourne and San Francisco.
