New Zealand Fashion Week 2016 will see an eclectic mix of up-and-coming and and established designers take to the runway to show their AW 2017 collections; much-loved returning names – Stolen Girlfriends, Twenty Seven Names, Zambesi and Ruby – and emerging talent – Lucilla Gray and Wynn Hamlyn – are just a handful of names that fashionistas, fashion buyers and media will gather to see. The week – which will run from the 22nd of August to the 28th of August – kicks off on the Monday evening with design duo and winners of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Presents accolade, Harman Grubiša. The public will get their fashion fix again this year too, with Trelise Cooper opening NZ Fashion Weekend with a spring/summer showcase and WORLD set to wow the crowds with their out-there designs.
