ID07 – Dunedin's world class fashion event is back

MEDIA RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Tuesday 11 July 2006
ID07 – Dunedin's world class fashion event is back in southern style

The 2007 Vodafone ID Dunedin Fashion Week will be held from 6-10 March 2007, in the romantic and remote creative city of Dunedin, located on the wild maritime coast of New Zealand's South Island.

ID Dunedin is the only chance for all fashion followers to experience of the latest collections from international fashion icons Nom* D, Carlson and Mild Red, who live and work in the city of Dunedin.

The finale and gold event of the week is the Vodafone ID Dunedin Fashion Show on Saturday 10 March 2007, taking place in the grand surrounds of the century-old Dunedin Railway Station, transformed for the night into an exhilarating voyage of the imagination.

This is the perfect place to experience the collections of New Zealand's premiere fashion designers up close on the 100-metre catwalk, and is your opportunity to discover our most promising new designers.

The complementary event is the Vodafone ID Dunedin Emerging Designers Awards, where graduates and final year students from across the world arrive in Dunedin to turn dreams into reality.

The Emerging Designer Awards are guaranteed to delight with previous looks including reinvented mods with Mary Quant hairstyles, bleeding edge streetwear, gorgeous silks, organza and satins, and colourful confections completed with a Buzzy Bee.

The appeal and charm of the 2006 awards created a flurry of interest around the globe with the youthful spirit and great atmosphere generated by concentration of international talent in this special environment.

An international panel of judges will once again select the best emerging designers from the entries, who will then show their collections in style at the Awards event.

A sell-out last year, the 2007 Awards will be held at the Edgar Sports Centre, Dunedin on Friday 9 March.

Entries for the awards open later this month and budding designers can check all the details online at www.id-dunedinfashion.com

Vodafone Sponsorship Manager Sue McGregor says it is great to be alongside ID Dunedin for Vodafone's fourth year as naming rights sponsor.

A special guest yet to be announced will make a personal appearance with their collection especially for the ID Dunedin Fashion Show.

The Vodafone ID Dunedin Fashion Week is a central pillar of Dunedin's reputation as an unconventional and independent fashion and creative community – an out of the ordinary city that takes style seriously.
