I was really impressed with the designs on the catwalk at the iD Dunedin Emerging Designer Awards held last Thursday night.
It was great to see the buzz this event has created on the international fashion circuit come to life in the small town of Dunedin.
The event attracted 28 desingers from across the globe and here are some of the highlights.
What I loved!
Design by Emelie Johansson – Swedish School of Textiles – grey tights teamed with a red velvet dress and apricot cardi – beautiful.Design by Sophie Hardy – Otago Polytechnic – The look of this collection is very street. The clothes are wearable and would look great worn shopping, dancing and when wanting to stand out!
