With New Zealand Fashion Week just a few weeks away, it’s time to start planning what shows and events to attend this year as we celebrate 20 years of NZFW. After the postponement of last year’s event, fashion fans will be flocking to the Auckland Town Hall to immerse themselves in all things local fashion from August 23rd – 29th. As well as the runway shows, NZFW will feature panel discussions and events hosted by some of New Zealand’s most reputable trailblazers, educating attendees on the future of fashion, with a strong focus on sustainability.

An absolute must-see event this year will be hosted by conscious fashion brand Kowtow and will feature an enlightening conversation between three of the country’s most innovative fashion and beauty entrepreneurs. Gosia Piatek, founder of Kowtow, will sit down with luxury skincare entrepreneur Emma Lewisham and Deadly Ponies Creative Director, Liam Bowden, for an immersive seminar experience entitled Single-Use Planet.

The event aims to inspire industry leaders and consumers alike in ways the fashion and beauty sector needs to create their own unique and innovative sustainability pathway to the future. It will be hosted by popular radio host and podcast producer, Noelle McCarthy. Single-Use Planet won’t dwell on the industries’ urgent need to address sustainability, because all three brands have these ideas ingrained in their DNA already. From packaging and DTC marketing to green science and material analysis, Single-Use Planet will focus on global positive impact and how brands and consumers can transfer groundbreaking ideas and discussion into worldwide action and world-first innovation.

“Sustainability can’t be your company’s tagline anymore, or a sub-heading under the odd product. Customers expect sustainability to be genuine and present in whatever they touch” says Gosia. “Kowtow started 15 years ago with sustainability in its DNA. For us it’s not about playing catch-up, it’s about coming together with other trailblazing entrepreneurs and brands to shape and empower our industries towards innovation and meaningful change.”

Emma Lewisham, founder of her eponymous luxury skincare brand, says “We believe that the prosperity of a business should be used to positively impact the prosperity of our planet and our people. Creating positive impact simply takes one passionate person after another, choosing to embody the change they wish to see, and this is why I am inspired by Gosia.”

Driving change from New Zealand, Deadly Ponies Founder and Creative Director, Liam Bowden adds, “Coming together as an industry is so important to continue to spark sustainable innovation. For us, transparency is ingrained in our ethos and considered at every step, but there is always more we can learn from each other. As a brand, we are constantly striving for greater sustainability, however, it is not without challenges.”
