Pasi­fika fash­ion awards en­tries

Central Leader - - News -

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.
