Australian designers to feature at New Zealand Fashion Week

May '08
For the first time ever Air New Zealand Fashion Week will say “G'day” and open up the runway to Australian fashion designers. A number of Australia's leading and up and coming designers will be shoulder tapped by New Zealand Fashion Week ambassadors and invited to show their latest designs as part of the Air New Zealand Fashion Week Autumn/Winter collections 2009.

“We're really thrilled to be able to invite Australian designers to show at Air New Zealand Fashion Week 2008 and we hope this move will further strengthen Trans-Tasman relationships within the Fashion Industry.

We now see many New Zealand designers successfully showing at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, so we hope this new initiative will support our Australian counterparts to achieve the same successes,” says Pieter Stewart.

A large number of Kiwi designers are already exporting their fashion collections to Australia and rely on RAFW to showcase their designs to buyers and media.

Australian fashion exports now account for nearly 80% of all New Zealand fashion exports, and event organizers hope that Australian designers will recognize the same opportunity from the other side of the ditch, to grow their business and explore New Zealand as a new and exciting market.

“We've been showing at Australian Fashion Week for several years along with a number of New Zealand designers, so it seems only right that we would invite Australian designers to show in New Zealand.
