Dates Announced for iD Dunedin Fashion Week 2015

Dates Announced for iD Dunedin Fashion Week 2015

iD Dunedin Fashion Week will celebrate its 16th year in Dunedin, New Zealand, from April 19-26, 2015, with an exciting week of exhibitions, premier catwalk shows featuring international guests and iconic Kiwi designers, and the much anticipated 11th annual iD International Emerging Designer Awards.

The international fashion event – which this year celebrated its 15th anniversary with a highly acclaimed show featuring Paris-based Australian designer Martin Grant, alongside much-loved Dunedin and New Zealand fashion designers – will deliver two iD Dunedin Fashion Shows on Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25, on one of the world’s longest catwalks at Dunedin’s historic Railway Station.

On Thursday, April 23, the 11th annual iD International Emerging Designer Awards will be held at the Dunedin Town Hall 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 weeks, local events, and the availability of Dunedin venues.

“It’s essential that we fit into the international fashion calendar to secure our guest designer.

“After an incredible 15th year celebration, we’re moving forward into a new era for the event – which aims to build on the success of the past 15 years and grow our international partnerships.”

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

Staley says many existing sponsors are already reconfirming for 2015, including Ali Mcd Makeup school, sponsored by Revlon, and Aart on St Andrew as backstage hair and makeup, and Ali Mcd as the exclusive modelling agency for the event. However, as always, the organising committee is keen to hear from potential sponsors..
