Aug '11
The ten New Zealand fashion designers who will showcase one off rugby-inspired garments at this year's Westfield Style Pasifika: Best of Pasifika event have been announced.

Contributing designers include: Zambesi, World, Liz Mitchell, Sabatini, Untouched World, Annah Stretton, Adrian Hailwood, Tanya Carlson, Lucie Boshier and Kiri Nathan.

Unique garments from each of these celebrated designers will feature in Westfield Style Pasifika's New Zealand Designer Collection. The local designs will feature alongside the International Designer Collection - garments created from top international fashion designers from nations participating in the Rugby World Cup and the winning creations from the Westfield Style Pasifika Fashion Awards.

Show Producer/Artistic Director Stan Wolfgramm says, “We are absolutely delighted to have the support of these top New Zealand designers whose unique Kiwiana-inspired creations will tell the story of what it means for us as a nation to host the Rugby World Cup.

“The addition of the New Zealand designer collection will undoubtedly put New Zealand on the map for our fashion-forward ingenuity and creativity and ensure this year's Westfield Style Pasifika is an absolute must see event for New Zealanders and international visitors alike.”

The Westfield Style Pasifika: Best of Pasifika showcase will be held over two exclusive evenings between the Rugby World Cup semi-final and final games on Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 October at Vector Arena in Auckland.

Westfield Style Pasifika: Best of Pasifika NZ 2011, is one of only four flagship events to be supported by Government during the Rugby World Cup and will be a truly unique show that celebrates New Zealand's place in the Pacific in spectacular style.

Westfield Style Pasifika, now in its 17th year, is an iconic New Zealand event and the world's largest indigenous fashion event. The awards within the event challenge designers to produce cutting edge fashion inspired by the unique and colourful fusion of Pasifika which is everything from this region of the world that makes us distinctive. The result is an explosion of fashion, art and culture, defining a uniquely New Zealand style.
