Thank you to everyone who came and participated in New Zealand Fashion Week and NZ Fashion Weekend. The ANZ Viaduct Event Centre was buzzing with energy and excitement with over 30,000 people through the doors. We believe that this has been the best one yet!
We had many firsts, NZ Fashion superstar Kate Sylvester showed two collections – her ‘Mercedes-Benz Presents’ collection as well as her in-season ‘Romeo and Juliet’ collection. We also had RUBY’s pop-up store and live streaming, the talked about Confitex show, Kronenbourg 1664 Metro Mens show and the high energy kids show. The exciting NZ led Child Labor Free initiative – and of course NZFW volunteer turned Project Runway winner Sean Kelly’s debut NZ show.
We have adapted the event over the past 15 years to recognize the changing fashion and economical landscape – with in-season shows to group shows presented by media powerhouse Bauer Media, an exhibition hall and dedicated food and beverage event.
NZFW is evolving and we are excited to see where we go next!
