This fashion show was organised to showcase the work of Massey University’ Design School’s 3rd year fashion students. The show was held in the first floor foyer of the St James Theatre, and organised by the students themselves.

And organised brilliantly: the foyer was transformed into a fashion venue – central was a raised runway, with subtle decorations and strong lighting; the sound system was top notch; the back panel at the stage end of the runway was an ever changing display of information and mode lighting; the red seating was striking, with appropriate mode lighting; there was a cash bar and complementary nibbles; and every seat came with a goodie-bag.

I felt the goodie-bag and its contents really announced that this show was to be taken seriously. The show sponsors had really gotten behind the show and the main sponsors got deserved round of applause. Centrepoint Fabrics, Zibibbo, Hotcopy, and 3 Wise Men were the big sponsors; Centrepoint Fabrics’ name was on the bag, they were one of the ‘platinum’ sponsors.

This show compared very favorably against the end-of-degree show  run by Massey in their great hall venue on campus.

The garments were shown in five sections:

  • Ethereal ;
  • Fun; (and it was one of the models did a cartwheel!)
  • High Fashion;
  • Sustainable; and
  • Ready to Wear.

Holly Dobson, the show director, definitely deserved the big bouquet she was presented at the end of the show. She and her team of fellow student volunteers did a fantastic job.

Hopefully this will become a regular event, because the fashion students do interesting work that should be seen. Without this, the students only show at their end-of-degree (or end-of-diploma) shows.
