Charmaine Reveley, fashion designer and external moderator
“This year the graduate collections are amazing, with a great mix of menswear, use of textiles and a creative design focus. Each year the Otago Polytechnic graduates produce collections showing a unique sense of individual style and design aesthetic. They have international appeal, are polished and have real commercial capabilities.”

Margo Barton, academic leader and principal lecturer (fashion), School of Design, Otago Polytechnic:
“In the past graduates have had a once in a lifetime opportunity to show alongside fashion royalty such as Zandra Rhodes, Francis Hooper (WORLD), Cybèle Wiren and including those from Dunedin such as Nom*D. It's an honour for graduate designers to be selected to show as part of iD Dunedin Fashion Week, opening doors to help launch their fashion careers. The collections will stand-out on the runway and the public will be able to experience firsthand the calibre of fashion talent coming out of the Otago Polytechnic School of Design.”
