Heart of the City, in partnership with Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) are stoked to have hosted supermodel Elle Macpherson in the city centre last week while she was visiting Auckland as the keynote speaker for a fundraising gala dinner in support of The Rising Tide Foundation. 

Elle's city centre experience started in Britomart with a memorable powhiri delivered by Auckland-based The HAKA Experience, before she met with designer Bobby Luke of the Campbell Luke brand, ahead of her visit to iconic New Zealand fashion label Zambesi's Britomart store, congratulating founding director Neville Findlay and his daughter Marissa (who has been photographing Zambesi's distinctive campaigns for over two decades) on the brand's 40th anniversary this year. 

Following this, it was time for a sweet treat, so Miann was the place to go, with Elle, a self-confessed chocoholic devouring a tasting board full of delectable items. 

Our chief executive Viv Beck says being able to show off some of the best of our creative talent, fashion and food offering in the beautiful Britomart setting was an opportunity not to be missed.
