Media Release
25 July 2006

New labels, more shows and Air New Zealand Fashion Week 4 U!

New Zealand’s cream of fashion design talent has made the cut for Air New Zealand Fashion Week 2006, with more shows on the schedule than ever before.

This year’s schedule will feature 59 labels and 29 individual shows, plus the Deutz Fashion Design Ambassador Awards and the AUT Rookie Show, featuring the graduates from the Auckland University of Technology’s Design School.

The impact of what the event has done to focus the New Zealand fashion industry and build credibility for the designers is reflected in the bumper line-up of new and established designers, who will show their Winter 2007 collections at Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour Marine Village from 18-23 September 2006.

Founder and Managing Director, Pieter Stewart announced the 2006 designers and labels scheduled to show at Air New Zealand Fashion Week at a media conference at the Hilton Hotel in Auckland this morning (25 July). (Please note: changes may be made to this list prior to the release of the provisional show schedule in late August).
