NZ’s First Eco-Fashion Week - Sustainable Style Model 2013

New Zealand’s First Eco-Fashion Week with 'Sustainable Style' Model 2013 Hannah Pasene

Wellington, New Zealand
September, 20-21, 2013

An Annual Eco Fashion Runway Event exposing NZ Eco Fashion – Wellington New Zealand

Designer Denise Anglesey and co-founder of this event is inspired to announce the first NZ Eco Fashion Exposed Event. An Eco Fashion runway of ecologically, environmentally and ethically sustainable, plus up cycled fashion.

Ever since she started designing, manufacturing and marketing her own personal brand of up-cycled garments in 2008 this inaugural runway event has been in her mind. The aim of the event is to highlight and make accessible to the public eco-fashion options, including wearable fashion, accessories, gifts and items for the home.

This concept is a first for New Zealand on this scale and has been a huge success overseas in Vancouver, Berlin and Hong Kong. From a fashion perspective – ‘ECO is IN’. This will be an event the Fashionistas will want to attend.

“Eco is in and New Zealanders are ready for it” says Denise.
The show will feature up to 14 Ethical/Eco/Up Cycling Designers including Denise’s own label - Denise H Eco Design along with ethical, eco and up cycling designers from as far south as Dunedin to Waiheke Island in the North. Also featuring our 'Sustainable Style' Model 2013 Hannah Pasene.

There will also be an exhibition of children’s wear, jewellery, accessories, skincare, makeup and gifts to match the theme. The show has its own professional Stylist – Auckland based Nora Swann of Kila’s Style and she will be showing how to build a fashionable sustainable wardrobe that matches people’s lifestyles and colouring.

The event will consist of workshops, a pop up shop, a children's eco fashion runway and the main event on the Saturday night where the designers will take to the runway with their eco fashion creations. The designers are excited about presenting fashion that is designed to reduce waste, and put together with materials where people have good working conditions and where the environment is taken into consideration in the manufacturing process.

The event venue is at The Notre Dame des Missions Arts Centre at Sacred Heart College, Laings Road, Lower Hutt, Wellington, New Zealand.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
