Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

An im­pres­sive fash­ion spec­tac­u­lar is set to hit the cat­walk later this month.

The in­au­gu­ral Auck­land Fash­ion Fes­ti­val will take place on March 16 with an ar­ray of de­sign­ers pre­sent­ing their au­tumn and win­ter col­lec­tions.

De­sign­ers will in­clude Trelise Cooper, Zambesi, The Car­pen­ters Daugh­ter, He­len C her r y / Work sho p , Huf­fer, ate Sylvester, Adrian Hail­wood, An­drea Moore, An­nah Stret­ton, Bark­ers, Cy­bele, uili­ette Ho­gan, Moochi, Paula Ryan, Stolen Girl­friends and Ed Hardy.

It is the first year of the event, which will have one ma­jor show and a week­end de­signer garage sale on March 20 and 21.

In fu­ture the show is ex­pected to ex­pand into a full sched­ule of events around the city.

The idea has been brought to fruition by New Zealand Fash­ion Week founders Pi­eter and Myken Ste­wart.

Pi­eter Ste­wart says the fes­ti­val is an event that every­one can at­tend, in con­trast to fash­ion week which is a trade event and closed to the pub­lic.

“The gar­ments shown on the run­way at the Auck­land Fash­ion Fes­ti­val are in-sea­son and avail­able in store,” she says.

Those at­tend­ing the open­ing night will be able to en­joy a glass of Pelorus N Cloudy Bay on ar­rival, be­fore a show of 10 gar­ments each by the de­sign­ers and live mu­sic pro­vided by Ge­orge FM.

An af­ter-party will be held un­til 11pm.

Tick­ets are on sale with the first 100 gain­ing free en­try to The New Zealand Her­ald de­signer garage sale.

Doors open at pm on March 16 and the show starts at .30pm. isit www.iticket.co.nz.
