Australian Eco Designer Woos Crowd in NZ


Australian Eco Designer Woo’s Crowd in NZ

Western Australian designer Zuhal Kuvan-Mills of Green Embassy woo’d the crowd at New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed (NZ’s Eco Fashion Week) held in Lower Hutt, New Zealand over the weekend.

Kuvan-Mills who presented a 20 piece collection of certified organic merino and cotton garments at the annual event, was the finale designer for the Dulux Eco Fashion Designer Runway which ended a week of highlighting eco fashion in Lower Hutt, New Zealand.

The designer lineup consisted of 20 international and national designers featuring a board range of Eco Fashion including Ethical, Ecological and Up Cycled Fashion

Kuvan- Mills collection, which draws inspiration from the palette of the Western Australian bush is a collaboration of visual artists and consists of minimalistic, natural fashion, transformed into an exciting body of daring pieces. The contemporary collection “Connected to Land Series” reveals a journey of discovery where land and fashion meet. Each piece is entirely unique which adds to the range’s appeal and the pieces range from stylish day wear through to striking ‘one of a kind’ evening dresses that are a timeless addition to any wardrobe.

“We were delighted and honored to have such a prestigious designer feature at our eco runway events during New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed” says fellow eco designer and Director of New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed. “To have a designer feature at our event that has just been on a whirlwind tour of high profile international fashion events including London, Vancouver, and Beijing, was incredibly humbling”.

After featuring in New Zealand, Green Embassy will once again runway at Vancouver Fashion Week before embarking on a visit to Paris where the designer has been invited to partake in World Fashion Week 30th Sep – 4th Oct 2014.
