Pasifika fashion awards entries
The call is out to fashion designers to enter New Zealand’s premier Pasifika fashion awards.
Westfield Style Pasifika is on at the Vector Arena in Auckland on September 5 with the show filmed for a TVNZ special.
The awards showcase fashion inspired by the Pacific.
Last year there were a record number of entries with hundreds of garments from all over New Zealand and the Pacific.
The fashion is the highlight of a show that also combines the best in music, dance and culture.
The 10 categories are Pasifika body art, traditionally inspired, Asia Pasifika, Pasifika hero, three-piece collection, urban street wear, menswear, evening wear, bridal wear and parent and child.
The awards will be judged by key New Zealand fashion designers and influencers.
There is a two-stage entry process.
Expressions of interest need to be in by Friday, July 11.
The second stage is the entry of the actual finished garments which are due by August 2.
All details plus the entry form can be found on www.stylepasifika. co.nz and entry forms are also available at all Westfield shopping centres and fashion design schools.
