New Zealand Post will be lending its support to Fashion Week this year as an elite partner, as well as the sponsor of Miromoda, one of its most popular runway shows.

“New Zealand Post is proud to be supporting New Zealand Fashion Week and Miromoda,” says New Zealand Post’s Jo Avenell. “We want to support other businesses in New Zealand and play our part in helping them grow. That’s why we’re looking forward to building relationships with designers and businesses within the fashion industry and providing the logistics support they need.”

NZFW Founder, Dame Pieter Stewart, welcomed New Zealand Post on board. “As well as being an elite sponsorship partner, New Zealand Post will be our official logistics partner, making sure goods get where they need to during Fashion Week.”

At Miromoda, the Indigenous Maori Fashion Apparel Board (IMFAB) will be showcasing the collections of ten designers at the newly-named New Zealand Post Miromoda Showcase.

Co-founder Ata Te Kanawa says it takes time for designer to find success.

“This is about making the right business connections, and New Zealand Post will support our designers on that journey.”

NZFW 2016 will be held at the ANZ Viaduct Events Centre from Monday 22nd August to Sunday 28th August.
