Miromoda set to shine for Matariki

Miromoda set to shine for Matariki

The Miromoda Runway Show is back in Porirua city centre this month for Matariki 2018.

The spectacular night of fashion and creativity will showcase collections from eight of New Zealand's most talented Māori fashion designers, selected from the nationwide Miromoda competition. The winner will be announced after the show.

The city is excited to be hosting Miromoda for its third year at Pātaka Art + Museum, Mayor Mike Tana said.

“It’s always amazing to see the creativity on display and to have our beautiful Pātaka space transformed into a fashion runway,” he said.

“This event is a real highlight for Porirua and a great opportunity to enjoy something pretty special and unique.”

VIP tickets have already sold out but there are general admission tickets available for $15 (plus service fees).

Miromoda also offers a pathway for young people to get experience in the fashion and modelling industry with a model call held earlier this month.

“There was a great turnout at the model call held in our city centre,” Mayor Tana said. “It’s going to be awesome to have local talent walking the runway and being empowered by gaining confidence and experience in the fashion world.”

As well as being part of the city’s Matariki celebrations, the Miromoda show is a Women’s Suffrage 125 event, as part of the national campaign commemorating 125 years of women achieving the right to vote and inspiring future women of New Zealand. Porirua residents have been asked to nominate 25 influential wāhine of Porirua to attend the show as VIPs.

The Miromoda competition is judged by the Indigenous Māori Fashion Apparel Board – a panel made up of Dame Pieter Stewart, founder of NZ Fashion Week, New Zealand Fashion Week Event Manager Janey Evett and Lucire fashion magazine publisher, Jack Yan.

The show is at Pātaka on 30 June from 6.30pm. For tickets or more information visit www.poriruacity.govt.nz/events

Gordon Campbell: On The EU Trade Talks With NZ

In the very unlikely event that all will be smooth sailing in negotiating access to Europe for agricultural products from this part of the world, the EU/NZ negotiations could be wrapped up in about two years – which is relatively fast when it comes to these kind of deals. At best then, we won’t see any concrete benefits until half way through the next term of government.

There is however, a far more pressing trade problem facing this country, and Europe (via Malmstrom) is right at the centre of it. This involves the fate of our – and Europe’s – booming trade with Iran, which has been targeted with sweeping punitive sanctions by US President Donald Trump, and these are due to take effect on November 4.
