The list is out!  This year’s New Zealand Fashion Week not too surprisingly dominated by North Island designers.

From September 3rd for four days, more than 40 designers will showcase their Autumn/Winter 2013 collections at a number of venues across Auckland.   Among the confirmed designers are huge Kiwi Fashion house names:Huffer, Juliette Hogan, Zambesi and Trelise Cooper.  
Notable southern omissions are Carlson and Nom D, who are not showing at fashion week for the second year in a row.  However showing this year is Dunedin’s Company of Strangers, from the South Island.  Internationally Australian designer Charlie Brown has also been named in the line-up, just in the last month.
NZFW managing director Pieter Stewart has been managing the even for 12 years now.  She is still very excited to confirm a strong list of designers, and even after 12 years at the helm of the event, its ever-changing line-up of designers is a major defining characteristic which sets it apart from many other fashion events.

I am most excited about seeing the local up-and-coming designers who will show in the New Generation Show, which offers emerging talent a platform for their first NZFW collection.  Its really exciting to see a big event really embracing new and local New Zealand talent!

Other highlights include the Miromoda Fashion Design Competition which invites Maori designers to showcase their talents, and the New Zealand Weddings Magazine Collection – Who’s not to love gorgeous wedding dresses!?
