Education New Zealand and Fashion Design Council of India announced the winners of their fashion event 'Runway to New Zealand ', which was held in New Delhi today.

The event showcased the 'Think New' collection by 12 students from New Zealand's Massey University and AUT University and India's National Institute of Fashion Technology and the Pearl Academy. The students used indigenous sustainable fabrics to craft new-age garments based on the theme 'Future World Connection'.

The fashion show featured engaging concepts by 6 student pairs, covering themes such as creative uniform, ambitious girls in a dystopian global environment, boundary less world, among others. The competition was judged by ace designers Amit Aggarwal, Rina Dhaka, Rohit Bal and Varun Bahl.

Yoshino Maruyama from Massey University and Megha Sharma from Pearl Academy won the first place followed by Claire Nicholson from AUT University and Aishwarya Jain from Pearl Academy. The winners received a two-week internship at the participating New Zealand fashion school.

Sunil Sethi, president, FDCI, said, “It is captivating for the FDCI to be associated with a cross-cultural fashion event of this magnitude. The charged minds from the two countries, New Zealand and India, have worked meticulously to showcase their individualistic take on fashion. This event proves that style is truly seamless and this could not have been achieved without the unflinching support of the Education New Zealand.” (HO)
