Designer fashion labels and Peter Urlich set to dazzle GPK Ponsonby!

A combined effort from fashion designers Robyn Mathieson, Serenity and La Cigale will see GPK Ponsonby transformed into an uptempo fashion show on Tuesday March23rd. The show comes as part of the 2004 Ponsonby Fringe festival, which showcases local designers in two weeks of food, wine and fashion at venues around Ponsonby.

GPK restaurant owner Dominique Parat welcomes the festival. "It's a great way to mix some of NZ's best fashion labels with excellent food and a top notch DJ. The total package should make for an amazing dining experience," says Parat.

Tickets to the event cost $50 per head, which includes a three course meal starting from 7.00pm, fashion show starting from 9.00pm and superior tunes throughout the evening mixed by Auckland's favourite DJ, Peter Urlich.
