28 July-29 July

Hokonui Fashion Design Awards

This is one of the biggest nights on the calendar in Gore.

Young fashion designers from New Zealand and around the world have their work showcased on the catwalk and judged by some of the biggest names in the New Zealand fashion industry.

This year's judges are Denise L'Estrange-Corbet, Janey Evett, Jason Lingard and Donna Tulloch.

These Awards are firmly established as a key event on the national fashion calendar and continue to attract entries and interest from throughout New Zealand.

Since 1988 the Hokonui Fashion Design Awards have been a competitive platform for all amateur designers, and have provided a valuable opportunity for both experienced and emerging participants to display their designs before a panel of high profile judges, and latterly audiences of over 1100 people.
