The garments of the Australian designers featuring in the show – Romance Was Born (pictured above) Akira Isogawa, Material By Product and Maison Briz Vegas – arrived just three hours before last night’s iD Fashion Show at the Dunedin Railway Station much to the relief of guest designer Doris de Pont.
De Pont, founder of the New Zealand Fashion Museum and guest designer, said that with the iD Fashion Show taking place on Anzac weekend it was timely to think about New Zealand and Australia’s shared identity.
For the show De Pont reprised NGV exhibition Together Alone (2009) and presented Together Alone Revisited.
New Zealand designers represented were de Pont (pictured below), NOM*d, WORLD and Zambesi.
During iD Fashion Week the Dunedin Railway Station was lit up poppy red and poppies were projected onto the building.
