Eight upcoming designers showcase at Air New Zealand Fashion Week

This year eight rising stars of the fashion industry have been given an opportunity to shine in the “ghd New Generation Show”.

The newly formatted show gives up and coming designers the chance to showcase their wares on the world class platform that is Air New Zealand Fashion Week.

Previously group shows such as Verge Breakthrough have showcased emerging fashion designers and launched many of our now industry greats such as Cybele, Michelle Yvette, Federation and Deborah Sweeney to their success.

For these eight talented designers, sending their Autumn/Winter 2010 collections down the ANZFW runway provides the chance to get in front of the numerous international and Kiwi buyers and media who attend the weeklong event.

It’s not only designers who have been selected to take part in the show, 7 high profile mediabchannels will be partnering up one-on-one with each designer. The list of media includes RemixbMagazine (working with 2 designers), Fashion NZ website, Front Row Diary website, Pilot Magazine,bCitymix Magazine, Black Magazine and 1am Magazine.
