New Zealand Fashion Festival - Should I stay or should I go NOW?

The inaugural New Zealand Fashion Festival kicks off in Auckland this evening with a catwalk show featuring 17 New Zealand brands on a 50m long catwalk to a sold out audience of 1000. All 700 public tickets are sold out!

Myken Stewart (co-owner) says on the NZFF blog: "“Next year we plan to have a long list of attractions; shows, parties, exhibitions and even an international business seminar – the sky is the limit".

Designed to invite the public into a world that can often be terrifyingly exclusive, fashion festivals are popular world over with Melbourne Fashion Festival in full swing this week (14th March - 21st March). NZFF is just a spark of a flame comparative to its global equivalents but I'm looking forward to seeing this baby grow!

NZFF also plays home to the New Zealand Herald Designer Garage Sale on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of March at 135 Halsey Street, Auckland. Tickets are still available at iTICKET.
