About NZFW

Established in 2001, New Zealand Fashion Week (NZFW) forms the backbone of the New Zealand fashion industry, enabling our local designers to promote and profile their brand to a national and international audience.

NZFW is a trade event that offers designers a platform to present and promote their forward Autumn/Winter 2017 collection to accredited delegates (media, buyers and industry spectators). It is the week where the serious business of fashion takes place, and when the country’s key trade influencers come out to shine.

Now in its 16th year, it is the leading fashion event in New Zealand, both aspirational and economically setting the benchmark for this country’s fashion industry. Arguably the country’s most glamorous event, NZFW is also a huge public relations success story. This media favourite now generates over $30 million in estimated advertising value.

NZFW is an opportunity for brands to build an identity by showing something outstanding and inspiring. It gives designers a chance to think beyond functionality and edit collections for maximum visibility and international recognition.

NZFW is a hub for all facets of the industry to meet, swap ideas, and consider upcoming trends.

An exciting atmosphere is generated by elements of theatre and drama, with street-style photography and blogging creating engaging and inspiring conversation.

NZFW 2016 will be held at the ANZ Viaduct Events Centre, with the harbour as a spectacular backdrop, from Monday 22th August to Sunday 28th August. This allows international media and buyers the opportunity to travel to, and cover, both NZFW and New York City Fashion Week.


NZFW and New Zealand Fashion Weekend are excited to provide experiences that target both trade audiences (VIPs, International Delegates, Media & Buyers) and New Zealand Fashion Weekend audiences (consumers and general public).

NZFW is available only to delegates and those who are invited by designers, the majority of whom are from the fashion industry.

NZ Fashion Weekend allows consumers to join in on the buzz of NZFW. Tickets can be purchased for the Resene Designer Selection Shows (Resene DSS), which are held during the week as well as the weekend. NZ Fashion Weekend offers access to shows, Seminar Sessions, the Beauty Hub and the exhilarating Designer Pop-Up Sale. Tickets for NZ Fashion Weekend, Resene Designer Selection Shows and NZ Fashion Weekend Opening Party will be available through iTicket.
