Hokonui Fashion Design Awards Accepting Entries
The Hokonui Fashion Design Award held in Gore, is upon us again and this year celebrates it’s 21st year since debuting on the fashion scene. Designers and artisans have a total of 9 categories to enter in to this year including; streetwear, nightlife, kiwiana, knitted, menswear, wool, collections, denim and a new addition – art couture.
It’s great to see the inclusion of couture sections coming through in more New Zealand design competitions as it gives designers an opportunity to explore the finer construction techniques involved and also makes for some very beautiful garments.
There is a prize pool of $24,000 up for grabs with a $10,000 prize package going to the design worthy of the Award of Excellence. Judges include some of our countries most prized designers including Francis Hooper of World and 4 others that are yet to be revealed.
There is less than month to get your entries in and the cutoff for submissions is the 16th of June 2009.
