Dates Announced For iD Dunedin Fashion Week 2014

Dates Announced For iD Dunedin Fashion Week – Anniversary – 2014

iD Dunedin Fashion Week will celebrate its 15th Anniversary in Dunedin, New Zealand, from March 30 – April 6 2014 with an exciting week of fashion events planned, including prestigious overseas guests, retrospective celebrations, and the 10th anniversary of the iD International Emerging Designer Awards.

The must-see international fashion event – which last year featured celebrity milliner Stephen Jones, alongside a show-stopping display from iconic Dunedin and other New Zealand fashion designers – will deliver two iD Dunedin Fashion Shows on Friday, April 4, and Saturday, April 5, on the Southern Hemisphere’s longest catwalk at Dunedin’s historic Railway Station.

On Thursday, April 3, the 10th annual iD International Emerging Designer Awards will be held as part of the week, providing an international platform for rising national and global talent and attracting entries from some of the world’s most prominent fashion schools.

iD Dunedin Fashion Week committee chair Susie Staley says this year’s dates were chosen to fit with other international fashion events, including L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, local events, and the cruise ship schedule, which impacts on the use of the Railway Station.

“To secure a prominent international designer, guests and emerging talent, we need to ensure iD fits into their fashion calendar of events.

“With a $10,000 funding boost from our premier funder, the Dunedin City Council, we’re gearing up for a fabulous 15th Anniversary year, which will build on the success of last year’s event.”

Tickets will be available in November, allowing attendees plenty of time to book in advance and secure flights and accommodation.

Staley says many existing sponsors are already reconfirming for 2014, however more sponsorship is needed and the organising committee is keen to hear from potential sponsors.
