French designer Lutz Huelle to wow iD fashion ramp
Mar '12
International designer and two times winner of ANDAM, the world's biggest fashion award, Lutz Huelle will show a retrospective collection at this year's iD Fashion Shows at Dunedin's Railway Station on March 30 and 31.

Coming to iD directly from Paris Fashion Week, the celebrated German-born designer, who founded the Paris-based LUTZ HUELLE label with business partner David Ballu in 2000, joins iD's line-up of New Zealand fashion icons, including Nom*D, Tanya Carlson, Mild Red, and Charmaine Reveley.

Lutz's presence at this year's iD Fashion Shows continues the high standards set by previous iD international guest designers, Zandra Rhodes and Akira Isogawa. Lutz Huelle and David Ballu will also join the prestigious iD Emerging Designer judging panel – which this year includes British style icon Hilary Alexander and Nicholas Huxley, one of Australia's leading fashion authorities, alongside Dunedin's own Margi Robertson, (Nom*D) and Tanya Carlson.

“We are very pleased and excited about coming to New Zealand to be part of iD Dunedin Fashion Week,” says Lutz.

“We are particularly looking forward to seeing the creativity and joy that's sure to be on display at this year's Emerging Designer Awards.”

iD audiences will enjoy a retrospective collection from Lutz Huelle at both iD Fashion Shows on Friday and Saturday nights on the Southern Hemisphere's longest catwalk. The collection will include selections from Lutz's past four womenswear collections, so audiences can experience a taste of the designer's extensive body of work.

iD Dunedin Fashion Week Committee Chair Susie Staley says she is thrilled to have Lutz Huelle on-board for 2012.

“Lutz Huelle is known internationally for his groundbreaking designs – subverting the traditional wardrobe by swapping the rules around how to wear one garment, with another. For more than a decade, his collections have 'wowed' crowds at fashion events all around the world and now audiences get to enjoy seeing his exquisite collections on the iD catwalk.”

Lutz completed his degree at the prestigious Central Saint Martin's College in London before working for Maison Martin Margiela for three years, responsible for the knitwear and artisanal lines.

In 2000 and 2002, he won the ANDAM Fashion Award – the French equivalent to the Council of Fashion Designers of America Prize with previous winners such as Giles Deacon, Margiela, and Gareth Pugh – while key pieces from his collections have been acquired and shown by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Musée Galiéra in Paris and the Goethe Institute in Tokyo.

LUTZ HUELLE is retailed in the some of the world's top designer stores, including L'Eclaireur in Paris, IF in New York City, LuisaViaRoma in Florence, IT in Hong Kong and Camargue in Brisbane.
