New Zealand Fashion Week
22 - 28th August 2016

The Official NZFW Blog


We are extremely thankful for our Partners, as without them there would be no NZFW! After a successful 2015 we are already working hard on 2016 relationships and ensuring that all our valued partners are involved next year. Sponsorship is clever marketing and NZFW provides a hotbed over 30,000 influential people. NZFW works with over 80 partners to form a partnership whereby our partners feel involved and integral to our event, which they are! Click here to see them all. We have chosen 5 key moments to acknowledge these amazing relationships.  We would do all of them if we could!


Child labor Free (CLF)

As part of an amazing initiative, local New Zealand labels Ruby, Kate Sylvester, Stolen Girlfriends Club, Hailwood and Nom*d signed on as pilot brands for CLF’s launch to consumers at NZFW.

NZFW is proud and honoured to be the platform Child Labor Free chose to launch their campaign.



Sean Kelly and Singapore airlines

A show stopper and a crowd favourite across the week, Sean Kelly’s show blew us away! Born and bred in Taranaki, he is now noted in the New York fashion world and returned home for an exclusive show at New Zealand Fashion Week 2015.

Did you know that Sean also used to be a volunteer at NZFW? We love hearing about stories like this when our volunteers come back and they have made it BIG!

Sean has joined forces with Singapore Airlines, and like NZFW they believe in his journey.

Happy travels back to New York, Sean, and thank you!



Kronenbourg 1664 and Stolen Girlfriends Club

We adore it when our partners align with the designers – it’s such an easy connection and great exposure for all the brands concerned. Kronenbourg 1664 is an exciting addition to the event, it’s awesome to have a beer partner and a beer that everyone loves too! Stolen Girlfriends Club are massive NZFW supporters, contributors and some of the nicest people in the scene. We LOVE and welcome this relationship!

Moochi and HOPT

What a show from Moochi and what amazing support from the audience right down to the celebs in the show. The energy was high and so was the expectation. HOPT was on hand to sort out the drinks and we felt this collaboration was a great brand alignment. If you haven’t tried HOPT or checked out Moochi, you’re missing out!

Sovereign and the NZFW fashion Lunch

For the ladies that like to lunch and not always do rugby, the NZFW Fashion Lunch is the place to be. Sovereign were the sponsor of the NZFW Fashion Lunch this year – their CEO inspired us with his words and provided a decadent, yet healthy, lunch with the Mint Kitchen Catering team. Jo Malone spiced up the room and Coney Stanley Events ran everything smoothly. Sovereign is synonymous with your family’s good health, and NZFW are 100% behind this!
