Resene NZ Fashion Tech Colour of Fashion 2016
  • Tuesday, 23 August 2016

It starts with the stunning silk saris, brought to NZ from Coimbature, Southern India. This is a region in India where fabrics and textiles are part of the region’s main industries. The vibrant colours are matched with the Resene Colour of Fashion paint pots and the students are given the brief for their designs.

This year, the brief told a story of “Anahera’s Journey” which was designed to help the students widen their imagination, take creative thought for their design outside their own experiences and into an edgy contemporary world of colour and design.

The students were tasked to follow NZ Fashion Tech’s teaching and learning process, and in four weeks, create a mood board and design and make a contemporary fashion look which will light up the runway at New Zealand Fashion Week. This will have the fashion industry on the edge of their seats because it pushes boundaries in women’s fashion, signals a fresh new direction in design, shows exceptional construction quality, is strikingly beautiful and would turn heads for any woman lucky enough to wear it.

Once completed, 10 looks were selected by a panel made up from NZ Fashion Tech, Resene and the fashion industry. This collection will be worn by models who will walk the catwalk and lead the 4 Resene Designer Runway shows at New Zealand Fashion Week 2016.

In addition, exciting PR opportunities included NEXT magazine, on-line publications, leading newspapers and TV!!

To view all of this year's final garments and to read about each student's inspiration take a look at the Resene Website Colour of Fashion Gallery.
