Auckland’s fashion industry is buzzing as preparations begin for the inaugural The New Zealand Fashion Festival show on March 16 and the Designer Garage Sale the following weekend.

This launch spectacular will feature 17 of New Zealand’s leading designer brands who will each get their chance to feature on the long 50-metre runway in front of 1,000 fashion fans, VIPs and media. Live-mixing by New Zealand’s top DJs will add to the excitement, with an after-party till late.

Festival co-owner Myken Stewart says that inaugural show will be something special and a promise of things to come. “We wanted to give people a taste of what an international festival show is like,” she said. “This will be amazing.”

This year there is only one show in the Fashion Festival lineup to launch the event, and as the festival grows, so will the schedule of events. “Next year we plan to have a long list of attractions; shows, parties, exhibitions and even an international business seminar – the sky is the limit,” she said.

With only 700 tickets available to the public, the inaugural New Zealand Fashion Festival show will sell out! Tickets are available from
