At the end of three intensive years of study, students on the Diploma Programme with NZ Fashion Tech produce a Diploma Showcase for industry, family and friends in both Auckland and Wellington
Their brief is to create a commercial, ready to wear collection, for a chosen and researched target market and our Showcase events are attended by leading industry figures.
We delighted in seeing our students' ranges on the runway. Together with their family and friends ,we are hugely proud of them and in what they have achieved.
What thrilling and eclectic ranges we saw. From street wear, to summer casual to bridal. Each collection was unique and inspiring.
