New Zealand’s first and only online fashion night Shop One Night, brought to you by the team at Shop What's New is back for 2013!

We're excited to announce our limited edition product for Shop One Night, in association with Cleo Magazine.

The talented New Zealand illustrator & artist Henrietta Harris has customised ten classic Vans Authentics to be sold only online at on Wednesday 5th of June.

Capturing Henrietta’s signature style, the limited edition Vans feature motifs from Henrietta’s on-going sketchbook she keeps, to explore fresh and informal ideas.

With only ten of these very special Vans, they won’t stick around!


The Vans Authentics are available for purchase for $199 on Wednesday 5th of June from 5.00pm until 12.00am.

We spoke to the lovely Henrietta about the inspiration behind her Vans designs....

Henrietta Harris

I have kept sketchbooks for years and don't really show them to people as there is a lot of nonsense in there. But I go through phases of obsessively drawing in them every night and I approach the work differently from my "fine art", not sure why. I decided to see if I could recreate some of the pages on to the shoes, and it seemed to work quite well! I tried to make each pair interesting and aesthetically pleasing, as well as being wearable.

What pair do you want for yourself?

The eggs!

What exciting things are you currently working on?

I'm currently doing some food illustrations for a few magazines, painting portraits of male models (such a drag) for an online magazine called BITE, doing some exciting things for an amazing NYC/LA jewellery line Vera Meat and working on new paintings for an eventual show somewhere sometime.
