As iD prepares to celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2019, it has confirmed a partnership with Dunedin’s historic Regent Theatre allowing all of its shows to be hosted in the beauty of the city’s restored theatre. The opening iD Emerging Designer Show and its runway Dunedin Designer Fashion shows will all be held in The Regent Theatre in a perfect partnership between built design and fashion design.

The Regent Theatre Director, Sarah Anderson said it's a perfect partnership. “The Regent Theatre is a beautiful venue, it offers the grandeur of the past with modern facilities, making it the perfect backdrop for today’s contemporary designers.”

iD Dunedin Fashion Week, Chair Margo Barton said iD attendees will be wowed by both the surrounds and the fashion. “The Regent Theatre will be utilised in innovative and unexpected ways as designers from across the globe descend on Dunedin to show their creations.”

She added “we’re very happy that collaborations between local suppliers Southern Lights and Strawberry Sound, the iD Fashion Board and event manager Sonja de Mari continue to drive the event forward, finding new opportunities to engage and inspire audiences as well as supporting our designers. Sonja is ably supported by an energetic skills-based iD Dunedin Fashion Week Board which is working together to ensure 2019 will be our biggest year yet.”

Otago Polytechnic continues to be a major sponsor of iD Dunedin Fashion Week. OP Deputy Chief Executive, Jo Brady says “The Polytechnic is delighted to continue building on the partnership and connecting globally to showcase emerging design talent.”

The Regent Theatre partnership announcement comes as New Zealand Fashion Week is held in Auckland, including for the first time an iD Dunedin showcase on Saturday 1 September. The sold out show features archival pieces from the iD International Emerging Designer Awards, alongside a mash-up of Dunedin designers including NOM*d, Carlson, Mild-Red, Lapin, Darlene Gore and more.
