Eco fashion event announces call for interest

Eco fashion event announces call for interest


New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed, NZ’s eco fashion week, is to be held in Lower Hutt from 23-27 July 2014 and organisers are calling for interest from designers.

The inaugural runway show took place in 2013, and international interest has sparked an expansion to a full four-day schedule of events including runway shows, workshops, pop-up shops, and an Eco Expo.

Exposed has been created to fill a gap in the New Zealand market for an event solely focussed on eco fashion showcasing sustainable designer brands and up and coming eco designers.

The event is the brainchild of Director, Denise Anglesey, and has been developed to spotlight ethical, sustainable, ecologically friendly, yet fully fashionable, stylish, cutting edge fashion from both New Zealand and overseas.

Ms. Anglesey says “we’re excited to be offering such a comprehensive schedule for the event, and interest has already been great.

“We’ve had interest from all over the world from designers wanting to take part in the event, and we’re finally able to say that registrations are open!”

Input from supporters and sponsors such as the Hutt City Council has enabled the event to upscale in 2014, with further room for development in 2015 and future years.

The event offers opportunity not just for established designers, but also has categories for new and student designers, along with opportunity for eco-related businesses and organisations to be involved.

Registrations of interest close on Friday 6 June and can be made online at www.nzecofashionexposed.co.nz.

ENDS.

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
