Dan Gosling, Luke Harwood and Marc Moore founded Stolen Girlfriends Club in 2005. The brand is described as having ‘a youthful rebellious spirit, a healthy sense of humour and the ability to entertain and empower’. Now stocked in over 13 countries around the world, Stolen Girlfriends Club has grown in to one of New Zealand’s most successful fashion exporters.

“In seven years the scholarship has gone from strength to strength,” says DHL Express NZ Country Manager Tim Baxter. “It’s so exciting to see our 2008 winner making such a huge impact on the international fashion scene, and we think it’s fitting to welcome Dan back as a judge this year. Since winning the scholarship, Stolen Girlfriends Club has grown into a significant player in the international fashion export market.”

The DHL Express Fashion Export Scholarship has established itself as an early identifier of young talent in New Zealand, with other previous winners such as Lonely Hearts, twenty-seven names and I Love Ugly, as well as Stolen Girlfriends Club, going on to significant international recognition.
