Celebrate emerging design talent with the global premiere of the 2020 iD International Emerging Design Awards video and announcement of this year's winners.
In an exciting first, the iD International Emerging Designer Awards in association with Otago Polytechnic has moved online. View the 32 finalists collections in a video filmed in bedrooms, hallways and parks across 14 countries in Covid-19 lockdown. Edited by world-leading production house, NHNZ the video provides a very personal insight into finalists as they introduce themselves and their design inspiration.
We're delighted to showcase garments from iD International Emerging alumni at our Awards show next week. Fashions from former finalists - with their own labels will be modelled by our real models. There will be designs from Anjali Stewart, Twenty Seven Names; Emily Miller Sharma, RUBY and LIAM; Abby van Schreven, Maaike; Marielle van der Ven, ReCreate Clothing; Jojo Ross, JOJO ROSS; Gemma Lee, Gemma Lee Suits and last year's finalist Otago Polytechnic graduate Rosette Hailes-Paku of Karaoke Superstars.
Moving the show online has enabled judging by a star-studded panel of 16 international fashion experts and the winners will be announced at this glamorous live event at the Hub in Dunedin.
Join us for Quartz Reef wine and canapés, film and fashion celebrating young designers from across the world. The four New Zealand emerging designer finalists will show their collections and we'll be joined by former emerging designer alumni who will show their labels.
