Mourning neighbours seek answers to young girl's death
BODY:
The grandparents of a young Auckland girl who was found dead in her home last week have told how they may never understand what happened to her.
EXTENDED BODY:
Kim Baker Wilson, in Auckland - Kim.BakerWilson@radionz.co.nz

The grandparents of a four-year-old girl found dead in her Auckland home say they may never be able to comprehend what happened to her.
More than 30 neighbours and church friends of Maggie Renee Watson last night lit candles along the fence of her still cordoned-off Onehunga home.

Neighbours and friends light candles at the Onehunga home.

The young girl's body was found at the home last week after her mother called the police. The police have not revealed what happened, but said no-one else was being sought.
Neighbours on Moana Avenue in Onehunga said their street was normally a quiet one, with a close and supportive community.
Last night they prayed and mourned a life lost as candle after candle flickered in the dark.
A framed picture of Maggie Watson rested on top of a small table; a photo of the girl wearing a red dress and a princess tiara.

Her neighbours just want to know what happened to her.
A woman struggled through tears to give an opening prayer.
"For all the families around this area, for even the strangers Lord that you've brought here tonight, you have blessed them and their hearts," she said in the dim light.
Behind her, lay items placed in rememberance by others like her; A teddy bear, a stuffed tiger, a small windmill and flowers.

Next to these, across the driveway, was a line of jarring police emergency tape still cutting off any access to the home. A parked car was still in the front yard.
What happened to Maggie inside the house is still not clear - police have not yet said, and initial tests were inconclusive.
One neighbour, who did not want her name published, brought her grandchild and said she wanted to express her love and not pass judgement.
"This little girl's life was taken away. It's sad, so sad. You have to realise that this little girl has been taken, her life's been stripped away.
"I don't know why. It's sad, it's so sad, and it's why I'm here," she said through tears.

Vic Tamati came to the vigil from outside the street, and outside the suburb, and believed residents were struggling.
"They don't know what's going on, they don't know what to make of it. I mean they know that somebody's died, there's a lot of secrecy around it all.
"All they know is probably that these kids know that one of their playmates is not here anymore, for no good reason. Why would a four year old not be here?" Mr Tamati asked.
Avia Amosa's children are among those who've lost their playmate. They live right next door - their house joins onto the one now blocked off from the street.
"They've got no family in New Zealand... They were good, they were friendly. She [Maggie] was always playing around.
"My kids are scared of this house now," he said.
Mr Amosa, who has lived on the street for 13 years, said this was the home's second death. He said an elderly man died from a stroke four or five years ago before Maggie and her mother shifted in.
Des Gilmore is another neighbour who lives a few more doors down and the family friend who organised last night's community vigil.
"It's still cordoned off. It's been a shock for us, obviously, and knowing that Maggie's not here any longer... We miss hearing her voice, hearing her mum in the garden with Maggie.

Neighbour Des Gilmore.

"It has been a bit of a shock and still will be for some time," he said.
Mr Gilmore said Maggie was well-known across the neighbourhood and was well-loved by her mother.
"Maggie was a little angel. Her mother was a very caring mother, really looked after her and treasured her like gold... She was an awesome little girl," Mr Gilmore said.
Statement read from Maggie's grandparents
Des Gilmore's wife, Kim Gilmore, read a message from Maggie's grandparents who are in Malaysia.
"Angel Maggie you have left your footprints firmly embedded in our hearts and all your drawings on our walls," the message said.
They described their granddaughter as an artistic, self-confident and caring child.
"Grandma will always remember your encouraging words like 'you can do it grandma, good job grandma, awesome grandma, be safe grandma' and 'best grandma ever'.
"Why you had to leave us so soon I guess we will never understand. We will miss you tremendously but you'll always be with us in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers.
"So our saying for you is, 'when someone you loves becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure'."
Maggie Watson's death is one of 10 police investigations involving the death of a child this year.

She was a defiantly unconventional lesbian businesswoman who had a 'wife' and even got married in a church. But it isn't just her lifestyle that makes her so remarkable - it's the minute detail in which she records her sexual exploits. Helena Whitbread, was responsible for the publication of her diaries in 1988, and is currently working on a comprehensive biography.

Americana singer Iris DeMent waited until she was in her 40s before she began her recording careering, with her first album being released in 1992. Dement has one of those timeless voices that seems to sound at once contemporary and ancient. Her songs have the same quality. She was quite the rage during the Americana boon of the 1990s, ending that decade with a handful of memorable duets with John Prine. We haven't heard much from her since then, so the release of her new album, The Trackless Woods is a welcome event for longtime fans. This time around, DeMent attaches her voice a melodies to the words of Russian poet Anna Akmatova. The results are stunning.

Mandatory Menswear
BODY:
New Zealand Fashion Week is only a week and a half away, so in the spirit of the theme, Sonia Sly heads in to the workroom of Wellington's Mandatory Menswear to find out how shopping habits have changed for the average Kiwi guy, and why the label is sticking steadfast to the ethos of providing the perfect fit for every kind of man.
EXTENDED BODY:
Mandatory Menswear is a Wellington-based label that have been operating for the best part of two decades with the aim of providing a service that isn’t fixed to fashion—but style, tying in functionality, performance and most of all, the perfect fit. Sonia Sly headed in to meet the team and chats to Finisher—Jamie Abraham, Design Assistant—Julia Banks, and Co-founder and designer Clare Bowden, to discuss the ins and outs of how New Zealand men shop, and why they’re still dedicated to going the extra mile.
Below is a QA with Designer Clare Bowden
Sonia: What was the menswear market like when you first started out?
Clare: There was a really big gap in the market and we were instantly popular. Saatchi’s sent their front guys to get uniforms [and] we had all sorts of clients ready to go. Particularly the Polynesian community really stood out because they hadn’t found garments that fitted them, that were their flavour off-the-rack, so they really appreciated the sort of fabrics and builds we could get up. It is an extremely difficult area to work in— guys are not the keenest shoppers, they don’t turn up seasonally, but just as they need things, but we’ve worked really hard to work create our own niche and that is offering a custom fit to make things right for people. It’s created a whole lot of loyalty, and increasingly, respect from an ecological and ethical point of view…there’s lots of good reasons to support a little business and get a great result.
Sonia: Why menswear, and not womenswear?
Clare: I actually had a very successful women’s wear label that I sold through Zana Feuchs stores in the mid-nineties. I really enjoyed it, I loved the fabrics, it was great!
Sonia: So you might revisit womenswear one day?
Clare: Every time I see a fabric range I give it a thought! But I just loved menswear. It was my strongest subject at design school. I love the interface with clients that we have. We’re really building things for people to have success, whether it’s in their relationships on date night or their various business pitches—it’s great fun to be working on Cuba street amongst that.
Sonia: How did Mandatory come about?
Clare: I was sharing a house with a builder who lined a shed for me—we set up the first cutting table in there.
Sonia: You co-design with business partner Fiona Edwards: what is your process and how do you work together?
Clare: Fiona is trained in a textiles background, [so] she would want to source and develop a whole fabric idea to go with a fashion garment. As a result of the designs that she will come up with we are often sourcing specific fabrics for it. My practice is to work with fabrics that we’ve already found, so it’s faster, but the two approaches is that it lead to a lot more creativity. We assemble fabrics, sourcing and purchasing year round because we drop in small runs to strengthen the range when needed. This also allows us to repeat our best sellers.
Sonia: What is the most important aspect of your design process?
Clare: The most important thing really with the designs is to make sure you’re using great fabrics in an appropriate way. We are always working on wardrobe: a collection that represents a wardrobe of ideas to cover all occasions. We then sell along the same lines. If guys really love a piece, they will understand what to put it with, and when they are going to wear it, and tick off a gap in their wardrobe.
Sonia: You made the decision early on not to wholesale, what are the benefits of that?
Clare: It’s definitely saved us during the recession to not overextend ourselves in terms of product pre-made. Fabric is really expensive and putting labour on top, it results in an expense that you’ve got out laid that you’re then gambling on in order for people to find value in it, to make that final purchase. What we do is garner a great deal of orders ahead of production, and that carries us through and allows us to manufacture a considerable amount, with a very high hit rate.
Sonia: Mandatory is all about getting the perfect fit, so how have you customised your label to work in a variety of different needs?
Clare: Rather than be remaking stock, we can make specific orders for people whether it’s changing the shape up or finding a firmer fabric, or a lighter fabric, or a deeper colour; changing the collar shape, maybe. We charge them the same as off the rack. WE run several lines of garments that are built for a cyclist shape; they’re needing everything from casual wear through to suits and work wear [they have] quite a bit of front thigh muscle, so those sort of components are built into our rack garments already. There’s a very diverse ethnicity over a really small population in New Zealand, so the 2XL guy might be a shorter beer drinking Scot, a broad but very lean Polynesian, or a tall Dutchy.
Sonia: What have you got coming up this season?
Clare: Chambray is back, and we’ve been using a lot of linen the last few seasons. It’s incredibly durable and looks fantastic when it’s old. Summer garments are going through the wash a great deal of the time, particularly on guys, so things need to have a long life and when they’re ancient and worn out still look fun for the batch. We’ve got a stretch linen that we’ve been using in a casual dress trouser—it’s very, very good for crease resistance. Some linens crease more than others, for instance with stripes, it will hide a great deal of creasing and that’s where the fashion for checked shirts go on… and on.
Sonia: Part of your ethos is about making classic items that can be worn time and time again.
Clare: Guys don’t buy as many clothes and they want that price per wear. That’s what we’re delivering: that people will want to wear it a lot and when they do, it’s going to last.
Sonia: What have you noticed about the way that men shop compared to 5-10 years ago?
Clare: There’s such an awareness to have your own personal style now whether it be for music or art, or self-expression. There are decisions to be made about what you’re prepared to spend on clothes as well. The rise of chain stores and online shopping is exposing guys to a whole lot of garments, but they could tip over to buying a whole lot of stuff, that’s just stuff. There’s a lot of competition for what people can spend their money on, but it is really important when buying fashion to try things on and make good decisions because it’s expensive and somebody, somewhere, has spent all of that time making it. [It’s] incredibly wasteful how many garments are not being worn by people and I think guys are starting to move into that danger zone of that kind of shopping, because all options are available to everybody.

EXTENDED BODY:
Frustrated by the inability of many aid organisations to get staff and resources into conflict zones, New Zealander Mick Seawright started his own called ReliefAid.
RelifeAid’s main focus at the moment is in northern Syria, in the city of Aleppo.
Mike Seawright has worked in, and around, northern Syria for the last two years and has networks that allow him access to the area that few other aid agencies have.
He says while his staff in that area are well-connected, it is important for his agency not to be seen as taking sides in a conflict.
Mike Seawright talks to Bryan Crump about delivering aid in northern Syria and the work his organisation does.
