Villa Maria Estate Cult-Couture Awards ’09 Taking Entries

CultCouture-09-covershotVilla Maria Estate and the Manukau City Council have yet again joined forces to launch the 2009 Villa Maria Cult-Couture Fashion Awards.

The awards which are part of the Manukau Festival of Arts are fast becoming a fashion design calendar staple.  Encouraging the highest standards of design, fashion and cultural interpretation, the Villa Maria Cult-Couture awards are open to fashion students and graduates, emerging and established designers and artists from throughout New Zealand.

One-off garments that convey originality, creativity and innovation are invited for entry into the event’s six design categories, with more than $15,000 in prize money.

This year the categories available to enter into are;

  • Recycled Revolution
  • Formally Yours
  • Obviously Organic
  • Flight of Fantasy
  • Matrimonial Bliss
  • On the Streets

The prizes are very enticing! The overall Villa Maria Estate Premier Award winner will receive $5,000, and a special cash prize of $1,000 is being offered to a Manukau resident and designer who impresses the judges.   Each respective category winner will receive $1,000 and the runner up in each section will net $500.
