New Zealand Influencing Worldwide Corporations

New Zealand Influencing Worldwide Corporations

With the who’s who of top world fashion just having left New Zealand fashion week it’s clear that NZ designs are gaining worldwide profile more and more by the second. Another type of New Zealand design – corporate niche design is also under the spotlight thanks to Niche Forecasting.

New Zealand is housing potentially the world’s best CSR innovator and designer who is proving outsourcing is a desperate need for corporations not just a ‘possibility’. Niche Forecasting designs have been reviewed by companies such as Google, Virgin, Weight Watchers, The Body Shop, McDonalds Australia, Coles Myer, Carter Holt Harvey and more. Niche Forecasting is a one woman brand whose name is Allison Toner - a 19 year old that has been committed to corporate social responsibility for 3 years now and has huge passion and energy for it.

What corporation is strong enough to capture her attention, and then be made into heroes almost instantaneously while starting a whole new branding era for themselves?

Well bring your wireless, a fold out chair and preferably a pillow as the queue is long but there’s plenty of Niche Forecasting innovation to go around.

Her previous designs vary from recycling to finance to love. She loves to learn about and design in as many industries as she can. As explained at the Niche Forecasting mission fits in well with Allison’s spirituality - these are tuned in together which make her happy in her work and this shows thru in its quality. Keep an eye out for her at the Her Business ‘Business Woman of the Year 2005’ awards in June next year.
