Mittelmoda Prize Withdrawn From Miromoda Fashion Competition

Sad news. The economic avalanche has taken yet another another victim.  The illustrious and much coveted Mittelmoda internship that was intended for the winner of the emerging designer section of Miromoda has now been cancelled.  Today the team from Miromoda issued this anouncement from their website;

It is with much regret that we have to advise the recession has bitten internationally much harder than us here in Aotearoa and unfortunately, we’ve decided to withdraw the Mittlemoda Internship, as part of the emerging designer winner’s package.

However, it is likely, the association with Mittlemoda will continue and we’re confident Miromoda will be on board with this reputable company in the future.

On the upside, we are currently negotiating to secure an alternative international engagement..

While this is disappointing I think that the Miromoda team have done an awesome job in building such strong industry alliances and securing prizes that are out of reach for most New Zealand designers.  Miromoda stands not only to foster kiwi design talent but offers opportunities that may lead to a runway of success.

On the positive side, word on the street is that Miromoda have an equally fabulous international prize lined up to replace the Mittelmoda Internship in Italy.  I have an inkling of where it might be…but for now my lips are sealed.

Until then, get designing!  Rember entries close in 7 days, 30th APril 2009!
