It's great to see how many people share the MAX vision of Keeping New Zealand Beautiful, especially when it comes to maximizing the international profile the t-shirts will get through Air New Zealand Fashion Week."

Voting for the tee shirts is available on the MAX website ( It went live for MAX VIP customers a short time ago and already more than 3,500 votes have been registered.

The finalists are Cathy Hansby, Auckland with Tapemeasure, Michelle Bluck, Auckland with To love what we know, Kaye Su, Wellington created New Zealand Designers, Christchurch's Hannah Ogilvie depicts Passport to Fashion on her t-shirt and Helen Osborne, Auckland created Pounamu Infinity Loop.
