New Zealand Fashion Week 2011 designer announcement

Making their solo NZFW debut this year are designers from across the country including Auckland’s Celine Rita, fresh from her success winning the title as most talented newcomer in the 2010 New Generation Show.

 

Celine will be joined by debutants Ingrid Starnes and Taranaki’s Whiri, which has worked its way through the NZFW fashion ranks via the New Generation, Miromoda and Group Show platforms and Christchuch fashion label MisteR.

 

The Miromoda initiative was founded in 2008 to advance the status and standards of the Maori fashion industry and each year supports emerging fashion talent.

 

MisteR debuts, following the destruction of their store in February’s earthquake and a busy time putting the finishing touches on their collection from their makeshift workroom, the lounge of their house.

 

The 2011 New Generation show will provide a platform for five designers to showcase their talents at NZFW for the first time. Auckland Based designers Deryn Schmidt, Egoist and Katie-maree Cole will join Nelson’s Emma Manhart and Wellington’s Two Wonders to walk the New Generation Catwalk, a proven training ground for some of the country’s brightest fashion talents.

 

Wellington based Starfish will grace the NZFW catwalk twice, showing a full collection and then joining Miranda Brown, Taylor and Untouched World to show the fashion world the best in New Zealand textiles, through the Merino Show.

 

The New Zealand Weddings Magazine Bridal Collection returns after a resounding success in 2010 and supports designers offering the best in contemporary design to those planning their big day.

 

With New Zealand’s leading designers and accessory exhibitors taking their place in the busy schedule and buyers, media and fashionistas ready to soak up the atmosphere in the new waterside venue, NZFW 2011 is going to be a full on week of fashion.
