Francis Hooper – Chief Designer, WORLD, www.worldbrand.co.nz
“We think iD is an amazing week of events and gob-smackingly cool! Finally, we have been able to clear our diaries to be part of an event that breeds incredible creativity. The city of Dunedin and its perceived isolation, is a factor that makes it so unique and the creativity that takes form in new design talent. The spirit of iD truly resonates with our WORLD brand. We consider ourselves to be different, innovative and encourage creativity and experimentation in the love of fashion – everything that iD represents and celebrates.”

Victoria Bunton – Event Co-ordinator www.id-dunedinfashion.com
“We are so excited to have WORLD as guest designer for our tenth anniversary. WORLD is a well-established and highly respected label. WORLD tends to push the boundaries in fashion design and their collection will create huge audience appeal and will bring a different dimension to the event.”
