TV One will also sponsor the Supreme Award in association with Fashion Industry New Zealand (FINZ) with a $15,000 prize package including $3000 cash, plus services and mentoring with some of New Zealand’s best fashion talent, $1000 worth of fabric and a membership to FINZ.

There is also a trip for two to Tahiti sponsored by the Tahitian Tourism Board.

The runnerup receives $2000 and a trip for two to Tahiti and the 10 category winners receive $1000 each.

Major New Zealand designers Trelise Cooper, Chris Cherry and Doris de Pont, to name a few, have combined through FINZ, to create a Supreme Award prize that recognizes Westfield Style Pasifika New Zealand Fashion Award as the country’s major fashion award and acknowledges the achievement of the winner.

“The business of fashion is highly competitive and challenging, even for the most experienced designers,” says FINZ executive officer, Mapihi Opai. “This FINZ package will help the Supreme Award winner every step of the way to ensure ultimate success across the board. No other fledgling designer has ever received the sheer scope of benefits outlined in the package.”

The Supreme Award winner will be given the chance to meet and discuss with founders of leading New Zealand clothing brands and successful fashion ‘marketers’. Their creativity will be supported by a solid business foundation with mentoring regarding the business of fashion. The insight gained by this point will enable the supreme award winner to ‘develop’ and brand their range before preparing it for sampling.
