HFDA calls for re­cruits


If you’ve got a pas­sion for fash­ion and de­sign, or stag­ing, light­ing and shows, the Hokonui Fash­ion De­sign Awards might just have an op­por­tu­nity for you.

The Wardrobe Ladies, as they call them­selves - who un­pack the de­signs for the first time, cat­a­logue them, fit them to mod­els and en­sure they look per­fect be­fore they hit the run­way, are look­ing for some vol­un­teers to help bol­ster their ranks.

So too are those who or­gan­ise stag­ing and light­ing.

Awards spokesper­son Sha­ree McIntyre said a meet­ing would be held at the Heart­land Ho­tel Croy­don on May 1 at 7pm.

‘‘We’re re­ally keen to get the next gen­er­a­tion in­volved, who are en­thu­si­as­tic and might have some new ideas to help the awards grow and evolve.

‘‘We’d like any­one who would like to be in­volved to come along.

‘‘I think the Awards have been per­ceived as be­ing a bit of a closed shop be­cause the same peo­ple vol­un­teer every year, but that’s not the case. It’s a com­mu­nity event and the com­mu­nity need to be in­volved and we’re re­ally keen to get them on board.’’

If you would like to at­tend the evening con­tact Sha­ree McIntyre on 021 159 6008 or email b.s.mac@yr­less.co.nz be­fore Fri­day April 27.
