Rural Women New Zealand WoolOn Creative Fashion Event – Winners 2017

Gore designer, Viv Tamblyn took out the Rural Women New Zealand Supreme Award in the Rural Women New Zealand WoolOn Creative Fashion Event held in Alexandra tonight.

Mrs Tamblyn won the Supreme Award and the Nu Dax Streetwear Award with her entry `A Touch of Copper’, a five-piece ensemble made from 100% wool featuring an oversized vest, bralette, pants, a jersey and beanie. The off-the-shoulder jersey was handknitted and hand painted with splashes of copper. The oversized vest and the beanie were also handknitted.

“Copper has an addictive attraction. I was inspired by the resurgence of copper accessories in homewares and have portrayed this throughout my garments,” Mrs Tamblyn said.

The event was an outstanding night of fashion, glamour, creativity with audiences wowed by the talent of designers from around New Zealand and overseas. Other category winners announced last night were:

The event opened with a spectacular short film produced by Brett Sanders of Matangi Station which connected the magnificent Central Otago landscape and wool production process with the incredible talent of designers who create something special out of wool fibre.

“I’m lucky to be involved with wool as a fourth-generation farmer on Matangi Station. It was cool to film a bit of what we do on the doorstep of Alexandra and to be involved with WoolOn,” Mr Sanders said.

The event was run by a committee of local volunteers with enormous support from sponsors, local businesses and the community.
