Join us for a fabulous fashion night out. Showcasing current collections from local boutiques alongside the special selection of respected invitational New Zealand designers, and new designer competition, the show keeps its essence as non-profit project. All proceeds go back into the Wanaka community.

This years theme 'fashion capitals of the world' transforms the hardware store with projected images of NYC, London and Paris.

With prestigious invitational designers Zambesi, A La Robe, and Mu By Design, the show is headed in the right direction. The prize package for the winning entrant of the Design Pioneers Competition includes flights to Auckland to meet one of the above designers, possibly even a seat a Fashion Week!

Terzann Elliott, the co-ordinator of the invitationals and design competition, Design Pioneers - aimed at young ‘un-signed’ designers who are asked to go wild and create a visual spectacle - shows her own brand Lady Knuckles, a collection she creates especially for the show, consisting of the unexpected and sure to entertain.

Carrie Berkey-O’Brien, show producer and the one responsible for casting and training the young band of models, has worked as a model herself for luxury brands Giorgio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo, Chloe, Donna Karan, Chanel, Jil Sander, Fendi, and Oscar De La Renta, to name a few. The opportunity for leggy local teens to learn from the master is something they could once only dream of.

Sponsors this year include Edgewater, Mitre 10, Broken Shed Vodka, Rippon Vineyard and Wanaka Beerworks, along with the shows mainstay Willlowridge. Beerworks is said to be creating a special ‘Willlowridge Wanakafest beer’, bravo!

So watch out New Zealand, Wanaka’s ‘Passion For Fashion’ is the next big thing to hit the National Fashion calendar!
