Created in 2001, New Zealand Fashion Week (NZFW) forms the backbone of the New Zealand fashion and beauty industry.
NZFW is a platform that enables local and international designers to showcase and promote their collections and their brand, with the goal of growing their business both nationally and internationally.
NZFW has evolved from a trade & industry event, one that is multifaceted engaging thousands of fashion loving consumers throughout the week and the consumer focused NZ Fashion Weekend.
The event not only drives brand awareness for the designers involved, but for a range of other fashion and lifestyle brands, which use the event as a platform to talk directly to an audience of well over 30,000 event attendees along with its wider reach through the millions of dollars of media coverage and social media engagement the event generates.
In 2017 the event runs from Monday 28th August – Sunday 3rd September, with a range of other satellite events and offsite shows around the city, before and during this time.
