Council To Sponsor Fashion Week
April 17, 2002
Auckland City Council has joined other sponsors in again providing financial backing for L'Oreal New Zealand Fashion Week.
Auckland City Councillor Scott Milne says that last year's inaugural event put Auckland on the world stage.
"The extensive media coverage promoted Auckland as an vibrant city and New Zealand as a place for innovative and avant-garde design.
“This year’s event will coincide with the second round of the Louis Vuitton yachting regatta and will be a great opportunity for the events to leverage off each other so we can expect to benefit from even more international attention.
"The council is committed to supporting quality events that bring maximum economic benefit to the city and this is certainly a quality event which showcases the best of New Zealand’s fashion industry, " said Councillor Milne.
The council's contribution to the event will be $40,000, which is the same as last year.
